1992 Barth Breakaway 30 (30-BS-11B) For Sale $17,900
 Login now/Join our community
5.9L Cummins 6BTA turbocharged diesel engine with 4 sp. Allison AT 542 Transmission. Air/Hydraulic four-wheel disc brakes. Tandem axle. Spartan Chassis. VIN 4S7KT9T18NC with 111,690 miles. (See Addendum following).

I purchased this coach from Florida 2nd Owner on 11/2/04 with 94,756 miles. We lived in Tucson, AZ. at the time. Used coach to visit most western states, National Parks and other areas in Texas, New Mexico and the Midwest. Moved back to Missouri May 2013. Unit was housed in a RV Garage during entire time both in Tucson and Missouri. Unit has not been on a trip since 5/13 but constantly maintained. We are now 83 years old with dimming vision and other age-related maladies that don't blend well with the RV lifestyle.

Our Barth is original in most every way. That's Good and Bad ;-). You won;t need to redo someone else's botched remodel but, you MAY want to make some minor changes/reparis if you care to. These are as follows: Co-pilor seat works but needs a new right arm rest, Dash A/C doesn't work because we all know not to use it (ran generator while traveling to power the two roof mounted A/C units so whole coach is cool), cruise control doesn't work because we never used it, awnings work and can be used but are due to be replaced, cracked control panel face plate and the wall mounted hair dryer is not working.

By "original", I mean it still has the two original 13" RCA televisions. I did replace the radio with a Pioneer Sirius XM. The carpets and window covering are all original, and in good condition. Ditto for the bedroom covers, light fixtures and bedspread covering. I did put in a Sony backup camera.

Maintenance wise I used Evans Waterless coolant, Transyn transmission fluid, Syntethic fluid in diff, Shell Rotella synthetic oil for the engine and, Power serve Diesel Kleen Cetane Boost fuel additive.

I have the original brochure; build blue prints; Spartan Operators Manual; Cummins Operation and maintenance Manual; Barth Notebook with Original Sales Brochures. Even have the original Barth Work Order w/standard Equipment List and Options ordered. Have the Barth Key Fob too!

This is a good solid unit with many more miles to go. As we know Cummins claims that the 5.9 12 valve will go 300,000 miles before overhaul and quite possibly 500,000 if well maintained as this has been.

Price $17,900. Looking to sell before winter.

We did a lot of travel in the western states of the USA and the high boiling point (+375F) gave me a lot of peace of mind when pulling a load at 12K elevation. Passed a lot of units stuck at side of the road boiling over. Never had a problem that way. And, it is waterless, which is a big plus. Highly recommended for "belt/suspenders" types--like me. Even if you are a "flat-lander" and get stuck in traffic on a hot day you will be glad it's in the unit.

Nice to hear from you Mary, I think 2 Barths will be enough for me.. I was wondering does anyone know if the ferry at Cape St. Vincent in new York state runs over to Wolfe Island could it handle a 30 ft er,,,a few feet of my 28 footer hangs out over the water of course that is where the engine is plus my motor bike on the back rack.

What size are the tires? Regardless of condition they are due for replacement and if I decide to pursue your unit I would need to know what they will cost. Does the fridge work well. How old are he batteries? How many and what size? Thanks

Your sales experience points out that it is important to price your unit realistically. It was right there in the range for these models with the mileage you quoted. Congratulations on the sale!
