Barths for Sale Suggestions & Buyer's Checklist
Welcome to the asylum, er, Forums Big Grin. You most likely have a diesel pusher, and it's a 28' Breakaway with the Cummins 5.9, and front entry.

28' Breakaways didn't have much variety, although no two Barths are alike, regardless of size.

If you want to post it for sale here, a couple of hints are in order:

1. Photos. If you have problems posting, send to the Forum guru, Bill N Y, a PM and he can assist.

2. Post the info on the Data Tag, as this contains the absolute info on your coach. This is usually found on the wall behind the driver's seat, and would show something like this: 9102-3657-28FE; The first 4 digits are the year and date of manufacture, the second set of 4, the sequence in all Barths built, and the third set, the length and info on the interior layout.

Also,it's the policy here NOT to post your Barth for sale without a transferable title in hand. No one wants to get interested in a Barth unless it's immediately salable.

My dad never transfered titles to his name how hard is that going to be to sell the 2 barths?

Check with his state tag agency; depending on how the title was signed over from the prior owner you may be able to put it directly into your name, but in any event, check with the estate's attorney. It may not be that simple.

Going to look at a 1988 20 ft Barth, ive never bought a RV but my girlfriend and I want to look at to start small for tailgating to Bengals games and short trips and figured this might be a good start.

Couple questions:

What should I look for when I go and look at this one for sale. They are asking 5,500 had 64,000 from pictures body looks good but I would need to repaint it.. OSU colors are not for me so any ideas on a two color paint job cost ?

Also the refrig is not working and sounds like AC needs some TLC. Do you think 5,5000 is a fair starting price

I see units listed on the "for sale " section dating back over 6 years. Forgive me but I have to ask " are these still for sale" ?

Some may be. They are left on the topic for general information. Only if there is a confirmed sale or the owner wants it removed is the post deleted.

email or PM the owner if you have interest in a particular Barth.

Dave suggested this more than a dozen years ago. cheers Dave's statement holds true today. Thumbs Up Let me please add, Please do not insult Thumbs Down sellers with low figures based on what others have purchased a Barth for. Our owners know what they have done to the vehicle they own. Salute So please never insult a Barth owner on the price if you have not taken the time to see the Barth personally. If a Barth is out of your personal budget, that is not a reason for the owner to reduce the price (although this can happen). If you are selling a Barth and know what you have done to the unit, please do not give it away till you get what you want.
Sellers if there is a low ball tire kicker pestering you to come off your price, please tell them to go buy a stick and staple toy.
