I wonder if anyone can help i am trying to find any pieces of information regarding a late 1950's ( i think ) folding mini motel caravan for my father in law but as yet i have come up against a brick wall!

I would be most grateful for any help recieved.

Thanks in advance

Andrew

Welcome Andrew

Last year at a couple of my shows I took these pictures of what I seem to recall was called a either a "Motent" or a "Motul", but I can't remember which was which. I would think the green canvas topped one was the "Motent"

Are either of these what your father in law is seeking. I have contact details for the owners if either is the right make.

I run the Weald Park Show at Brentwood, which is where I took the photos. Will you and you father in law be there this year?

I won't let on about the website if you are. But it was a new make to me and I don't have any further information.

The Mini-Motel is the fore-runner of the Portafold.
Try this website:
Portafold.co.uk (The home of the Portafold, Ansfold and Mini-Motel folding caravan....).

Buttons, could you ask your father-in-law to be to contact me? My email address can be found on the 'contact us' page on my website www.portafold.co.uk

With regard to your original query, I do have some information on the Mini-Motels that may be of use to you.


Regards

Matthew
