The Slightly Delayed Big 60th+1 Birthday Party of the Portafold (12th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering) (i.e. 2021)

Help us set a new world record at the huge 60th+1 birthday party!

Ironically, the current record is 59 Portafolds and Ansfolds (we set that at the 2016 Newbury Retrofestival), so we want to smash this by getting well over 70 there this time. We have a lovely area that will take that number of caravans and the show itself is a fantastic event that will not disappoint. There really is something for the whole family.

So put the dates 13th, 14th, 15th of August 2021 in your diary now and get those dates booked off work early. Be part of a record breaking event that will go down in history.

Show Address: Newbury Showground, Priors Court, Hermitage, Thatcham, West Berkshire, RG18 9QZ

Don't book direct with the show organisers, just contact me (07771544419) to get your pitch saved.

Replacing cushions

Post by vauxhallbitz » Mon, 11 Mar 2013, 5:55 pm

I seem to remember a post on this but can't find it.

Has anyone replaced the foam cushions and, if so, where did you get the foam and can you go any thicker than 3" or will this cause a problem when folding the van?

Best thing to search for is 'foam', there's been plenty of mentions over the years but this covers a few points: ... ?f=3&t=125

Personally I would stick to 3" otherwise it makes it hard to tuck them into the walls.
Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!
