Looking at a 1963
I'm a Shasta gal looking at a 1963 Barth; anything Barth specific I should know about before I go and kick the tires etc.?

Thanks!!!

A 1963 will be tied for the oldest Barth we know of. The data tag is often on the tongue.

As with any vehicle of that advanced age I would pay particular attention to corrosion of the steel frame. If frame is OK I would look at tires and brakes next. At that point it should be safe to tow.

Appliances, wiring and plumbing will all need to be checked. Good luck with this old Barth!

I'm a Calie nut that currently owns a Shasta trailer.

The '63 Barth may be too big for us; it's a 26', but may be worth checking-out, regardless!

The Barth (aluminum-framed)trailer in infinitely better quality construction than a stick-n-staple wood-framed wall Shasta.
