Mrbean, I am thinking your name is Ken Allen. Any relation to Tim Allen? Most of your pictures links were broken. You probably do not know you need to pay Photobucket a $400. annual fee. That is what Photobucket charges for linking photos.
Thank you for offering your Barth for sale to our frugal members.

Is this your data tag?



If so give me a few days and I will get a folder for your pictures on Bill NY's Photobucket account. We as members share the Annual fee to Photobucket and the cost of running this site without any outside advertising. Information on sharing our costs are found here.

yes that is my data tag and the correct link to my photobucket. I sent an email to the upload email address. I don't have this listed for sale locally yet I figured I would give this group a few weeks first.

Thanks again for the help

Here is the information from eBay for our members. This is a NO RESERVE auction.
Ebay Description:

I have decided to pass my Barth on to someone else. The Family has out grown it. This has been a very good coach. These are very high end coaches. All Aluminum construction including the roof. The original sale price was 99k and they were built to order. This was a Texas coach until I bought it. I'm the third owner. It has 47,900 miles with a engine swap at 32,000 miles(rod knock). It is ready to drive anywhere you want. It is naked because the paint was not salvageable(Texas sun and heat). I have coated it with Gord's aluminum polish and sealer there is still some yellow primer in spots. I never got around to buffing the drivers side or rear. It is a rear bath floor plan. It has a fuel injected 454 on a Chevy p30 chassis.

For more info on these Awesome coaches visit www.Barthmobile.com

The Bad:
The electric step Doesn't work in auto.
I use a home made cable and switch to operate it
The duel tank valve is stuck on the main tank its 40 gal(have the replacement)
The aux tank is 40 gal as well
Small Exhaust leak I believe it is the driver side manifold(Have replacement)
Idle is slightly erratic some times. runs good otherwise.
The carpet is original not in the best shape
the sleeper sofa upholstery is tore(see photo)
In cab generator control doesn't work(hour meter still runs just can't start or stop the gen)
In dash a/c disconnected(I run the gen-set and the front a/c while driving)

If your looking for a brand new coach this ain't it. But this is a very solid coach for the age.
I wouldn't hesitate driving this thing anywhere. It is defiantly a attention getter I get honks and waves every time i drive it.

All appliances work
It has 2 13.5 a/c units
microwave/convection oven
propane heater
gas/electric 6gal water heater(also heated by engine coolant)
20in flat screen in the front(12v)

shocks all around
all soft brake lines
new master cylinder
