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.

Roof - Veltrim or flocking?

Any questions about maintenance or the restoration of your Portafold or Ansfold.

Roof - Veltrim or flocking?

Post by scottie » Mon, 10 Jul 2017, 5:57 pm

Anyone had their roof flocked? I read that this is what they had originally.

I see most people are using Veltrim, but I get the feeling it will sag eventually, or is there a new super adhesive that wont let it ?

Mine's original flocking, and if I had a roof that I had to choose what to do with, I would go flocking every time.

I've felt the weight of a roof after it's been Veltrim'ed and it's considerably heavier, as if it's not hard enough to do the second lift of the roof already!
Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!
