Pretty sure the engine is in the back with the louvers on the left rear of the coach. Cummins 160 is underpowered. But looks good. Wheelbase looks pretty short. Wayne, you're a certified Barth junkie, almost as bad as I am, always looking for Barths. When will you get your next one?

We've seen this one before. I am always put off by a dealer who doesn't have complete info on something they are selling.

Definitely a rear engine. Look at the bedroom photo with engine hatch. No doghouse in front either. Looks like generator exhaust out the driver side front corner.

The steps look odd too.

First one I recall with large awnings on both sides, but no awning struts... hmm

As provided by our SEARCH this Barth has been for sale too long. Of course the price has come down to reality.

Kevin, you're really good at finding this stuff. Think I'll hire you to be my 'search' guy. All the beer you can drink plus monopoly money.

You are on, but keep in mind Budweiser, and Miller is not beer. I drink Craft Beer, The rest are all just watered down wanna be Beers. My favorite is about to come out for Halloween. It is called Nosferatu, from Great Lakes Brewing Company.
Oops WAY of topic
Back to Little Betsy, the price may be getting into your price range. It is half the original listing price.

It's a 28' Breakaway (it has the usual 28' interior). Dealers tend to use the length deceit many builders use - include the bumpers in the length.

Engine access is primitive, necessitating removal of the mattress.

It is ok if you drink watered down beer. Just like this post and Rusty points out it is really a 28 footer. Stretch it out and water it down.

Cheers, no matter what you drink.

I see a possible opportunity for someone who is in the market for a 28. dealer omits how many miles, the 160 can be dialed up to about 210 very easy and a plate in the pump to 250, that would be the max as it has the 4 speed that is only rated for 250. My 93 30 has 190 and it is adequate but just barely. The interior looks clean and the price is down in the "might be well worth it" area and it just begs for offers as it has been on the market way too long, is short, and a bit long in the tooth for today's buyers. Ideal length for a solo or traveling couple living simple.
