This coach was purchased 10 yrs ago off of eBay by 2 uneducated Barth/motorhome people. We bit off much more than we can chew. I am not sure if we could sell it in the condition it is in. We had work done several times on it after the purchase but the the issues were not resolved and the mechanics kept putting band-aids on her. She needs an owner with the skill and knowledge to fix her. While I (Sue) really like the coach it has become less likely to get her fixed as time goes on. I would like her to go to a new home and restored or maybe just used for parts. My husband will be the one to speak with about what has been done. I will try to get additional pictures and see if I can upload them later. Anyone in the area is welcome to come see her. She has been sitting for several years. Hubby (Joe) is available by phone in the evenings 865-360-6477. We will be out of town for several weeks at the end of April. The data tag is on my profile page. Thank you Sue Weigel

i do not need a second barth regal but yours sure looks nice inside . way more pictures and info would help . would we purchased ours last summer and just completed a trip to florida . i love the thing .. my wife not so much ...it is true one needs a multi thousand dollar budget to maintain one of these . and maybe more importantly mechanical ability . but i believe than any rv new or old will have repair high cost . new ones must have $20,000 per year depreciation and monthly payments over your total asking price . we intend to keep our come hell or high water , if some prospective buyer need some info on a regal i would be glad to put in a encouraging word . you can use my number jack 248.789.3803

Just out of curiosity I looked up what a new rebuilt shortblock would cost. Here's a couple under 3 grand with 5 year warranties. If you could get it done for less than 5 grand, which I would guess is high, you'd have 10 grand into this beautiful coach. https://www.powertrainproducts...ol-Engines-s/244.htm
