ROBBINS BRAND CONVERTIBLE TOPS, TR250, TR6
"We at TRF Consider Robbins Brand Tops to Be the Best
Overall..."
The Roadster Factory has been handling Robbins brand tops since the 1980's, we
have visited the Robbins factory in California a number of times, and we believe that
the Robbins tops are the best overall with regard to quality, value for money, range of
choices, and other factors, including good response to warranty issues.  For TR250 and
TR6, Robbins makes tops with reflective stripes identical to original Triumph tops in
the U.S. market and tops without reflective stripes for international markets and for
those who don't desire them,  Robbins also makes tops with and without zip-out rear
windows, and a range of materials and colours is offered with a corresponding range of
prices.  The most common materials are Robbins own vinyl top material, which tends to
be a little stiff in cold weather, British Everflex vinyl material, and a deluxe canvas
topping material which we call Sunfast.  Each material comes in its own range of
colours, and TRF offers the widest range of materials and colours of any British parts
vendor.
My own favourite material has just been discontinued.  We knew it as a black
Everflex material with black canvas backing, but it now appears that it may not have
been Everflex after all.  Still it was very nice, and I have it on both my TR5 and my
TR6 with both having been mistaken for original Triumph tops on many occasions.
Although this material has been discontinued, I am going to keep the listings in the
catalogue at the end of this section with the idea of looking for a replacement material.
In the mean time, customers looking for a vinyl top with a black backing can use the
Robbins material which has a good grain for TR250 and TR6, although it is a rather
stiff material in cold weather as intimated above.  And there are many other choices,
including other Everflex materials, most of which have either tan or grey backing and
Sunfast canvas material which usually comes with tan or black backing.  Both of these
are available in a wide variety of colours, and all colours are available with or without
the reflective striping offered originally in the U.S. market.  Both Everflex and Sunfast
canvas are good materials for customers living in cooler climates.
Most Robbins tops are made to order for TRF customers, although we keep some of
the fastest moving colours and models in stock.  This gives our customers the full range
of colour and material choices, and it insures that a factory-fresh product will be
delivered every time.  Material samples are available at no charge, but we request that
customers let us know the colours they desire when requesting samples.
