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.

1972 Portafold for sale - FOR SALE

Post by Admin » Tue, 24 Sep 2019, 2:41 pm

Jan is selling her 1972 Portafold. Here is what she says about it:

"Gorgeous 1972 genuine Portafold folding caravan. This Portafold is nearly 50 years old so obviously is not like new however it is newly painted inside and out, has brand new seat and cushion covers, brand new curtains, new rubber trims and brand new tow bar electric connector. Folds flat to trailer height so is very easy to tow unlike a full caravan. Vintage, retro 1950’s/1960’s Miami beach colours, baby blue and cream with Cadillac-style fins at rear and cute stable-door. Seat cushions make up 2 single beds, 3 single beds, a double or a king size depending upon how much floor space you want inside. 2 top shelves and large worktop for prepping and cooking. Huge amount of under-seat storage for bedding, crockery, cutlery, firepit and logs etc. Selling with 2 Towsure gas camping stoves, 9 brand new gas canisters (plus 3 half full), fire blanket, brand new fire extinguisher, foldaway table and folding, metal caravan step (not shown in photos), and will have two new tyres fitted before the new owner collects it. Portafolds are rare and don’t come up for sale very often. We have used and loved this little beauty for nearly 10 years but having acquired a motorhome last year, we have decided to sell. If you love camping but are ready for a little bit more comfort and style which turns heads everywhere you camp, then this is definitely for you! Fabulous for festivals, mini-breaks and spur of the moment trips."

Just so you know, I am completely impartial and I won't give any valuations on Portafolds or Ansfolds, neither do I get involved in the price being asked for any caravans being sold. I do not act as a go-between or an agent and therefore I take no commission or fee for putting prospective buyers in touch with sellers. This is a purely free service that I provide to the members of this forum. Beware of individuals that deal in Portafolds who masquerade as private sellers. As far as I am aware, all the details I pass on are private sellers, unless I specifically state otherwise in the listing.
Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!
