We had a terrible accident with our Barth Trailer, which we had fully renovated for 2 years. We were lucky to not get hurt but the Barth is in bad shape and we cannot fix her. Wanted to know if anyone wanted her, parts or anything? Can you think of anyone that would want it, is the metal worth anything? Got any ideas? Thanks for the help!

Here is a link to my shared photos of the accident:

OMG a bad day on the road. confusion

So good to hear no one was hurt! You had done such a nice job on that trailer. We were hoping to meet you and see it some time. So sad to see all that nice work lost.

Considering the rollover, it is still mostly in one piece. Shows how sturdy they really are. You can't do that with a modern trailer.

Perhaps if you still have the ambition you can find another. Wow...

We we’re amazingly lucky. The trailer popped off the hitch from the SUV and rolled over on the grassy median. We were in Texas and it was very windy. It’s very sad for us it was a beauty for sure. This happened several months ago and we were hoping to fix it but it’s too much. Thanks y’all.

about 45 years ago one fall evening also in Texas
I saw the results of a similar rollover but not a Barth...
The guy was just standing there, arms folded, with his wife, shaking his head
as he saw his trailer spread out before/behind him over a long distance..they weren't hurt either...


The 82 MCC {by Barth}
is not an rv--
