Do you think at 18K the owner should spend a grand on a couple of batteries? It might improve the sale.

Something is not right with this coach. Why would the owner remove good batteries from routinely driven motor home? I suspect they are hiding a mechanical issue.

I suspect the seller is trying to avoid any liability by selling as "non roadworthy" ie tires are worn and he is unwilling to pay to replace

Probably sold the batts before they got too old and became worthless…

This one needs more pictures, it is pretty old. Caveat emptor.

This Bluebird was occupied by a young bachelor seasonal worker in Grand Teton NP Summer 2002-03. It was well-worn then, and barely operable; very little routine maintenance was performed before, during, or after his 5-month (parked) sojourn. It looked real good, as it does in the picture. A fixer-upper.
PS: I miss MY Barth every week, and it's been gone 8 years.

Thanks for the update Gunner. I do not think I would give 5K if it was next door. I suspected a something was fishy about this rig. It does show well though, except for the bent bumper.
