Robin went out of business in the early 80's.

 

The 335/2 dates from 1979 at latest. From 1980 it became the 400/2 and was slightly longer.

 

Robin were part of the same group as Willerby who mostly produced statics but also some tourers up until around 1970.

 

If you put an external pic on I can have a stab at dating it.

hi many thanks for your reply,have found some plates on the chassis and next to front door also a sellers plate which is forrest of dean caravans which if still in business is around thirty miles away, bearing in mind these plates are dirty over the years, so light cleaning is order of the day, and yes will try to get photos of the van

many thanks again stoney

1976 - 1977. Prior to that had a blue stripe, after that a two tone brown.

They were one and the same, Willerby was the parent company I think.

 

Willerby did produce their own tourers for a while, my uncle had one, but stuck mostly to statics, leaving the Robin name for tourers
