Original Awning for sale on eBay - NOW SOLD

Post by Admin » Sun, 26 Apr 2015, 8:09 pm

This is an original Portafold (or Ansfold) folding caravan awning. As part of my garage clear-out it has to go.

Trust me, these are rare!

It's been given a complete overhaul by a professional awning company in Bristol (Kingswood Canvas). There is nothing that needs doing to this awning.

It comes with a complete new channel strip, all new (new ladder style) peg down rubbers with extra peg down rubbers added to improve stability in strong winds, new (and extra added) ties for attaching to the awning poles inside.

As you can see in the pictures it's blue and yellow, it measures 6' by 6' and has a roll up window cover on the near side with the original semi-opaque window behind it.

Please remember that it is an original Portafold awning so it has the odd small mark and it's been sat in a storage bag for many years which has left it with a slight musty smell due to not being used. Give it a few outings and it'll soon freshen up. The roof is also a little sun-bleached but you can't see it when it's erected and it's only noticeable when you lay it out on the floor and compare the walls to the roof. Just add pegs and a couple of guy ropes for added security in strong winds, and you're all set.

I've acquired a box big enough for it and the carriage by UPS will cost £10.00 (UK only obviously). You can collect from Christchurch, Dorset BH23, or every few weeks I am in Potters Bar, Hertfordshire, if that's any good for you. Cash would be required if you wish to collect.


99p start, no reserve, and NO BUY IT NOW

Bid with confidence, this auction will NOT end early.

Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!
