Hello

The windshields are DW730 and DW731. OEM for GM Astro etc tilt cab trucks from the mid 80's.

I think windshieldstogo.com stocks them. Good luck

BTW the Regencies were all diesel pushers. 22 ft gasser would be a Regal model.

I just saw that you're a Volkswagen Bus Guy. I've owned 2 buses in the past too, a 64 or 65 tin top Westfalia, and I restored a 71 tin top Westfalia. I wish I still had them both. That's a nice looking bus you have there. Nice Barth too. That 98 would be the last year Barth was built ?
The guy I bought our Barth from claimed only 2 1989 22 Foot Regal were built that year...do you know if he's correct ?

My Barth was built in August of 1997. All those built late in the year were designated "98" models. (like the car companies) I believe the last coaches were completed by December and the company folded in early 98.

Sadly, when Barth went out of business was before computer records and most of the company information was never preserved. We here on the site have tried to piece together the history.

We have record of one other 1989 22ft Regal: (there could be others)
8902 3594 22C

22 ft coaches were never the most popular selling Barth models, so it is entirely possible yours could be one of 2 that year..
