Ok...lets just suffice to say Tina and I are obliged to put the Barth up for sale. Before I get too much grief, I will buy another Barth soon enough, Guaranteed.

For the record, I will not be listing this unit on any other sites for a couple weeks as we would prefer to sell to someone here if desired.

1996 Barth Regal.
Data tag #- 9610-S0047-23R-01
31,xxx miles
Fuel injected 454
Sale Price- $10,000 or best offer. Keep in mind folks, I am reasonable and will not be holding on to this unit for years till I get this figure or anything like that. If someone wants to pick it up tomorrow though, I will pull the post at $10,000

-New entry handles from Flemming Sales (unless your name is Jones)
-One ceiling light has a bad ballast
-one storage door hinge needs repair over drivers seat (interior).
-windshield wiper motors (they both work right now but they go at a different pace and it just drives me nuts so I assume you wouldn't like it either.




note the dc lights here, these are the old ones.




















Just thought I would throw this photo in of what it looked like when I bought it. I will post a pic with the new a.c. halogen lights down the line










the new Whelan (d.c.) lights


These are the handles that can be ordered for about 40 bucks a piece from Flemming Sales to say whatever you want.


A few more notes: God knows I am no salesman, but the best part about this coach is the fact that I have spent lots to get rid of a lot of little problems. Granted this is mostly because I like to tinker but still,.. I would have no problem driving this Barth to Alaska. Heck, it took my Dad and I home from Ft. Pierce Florida with no problems at all before I did all this work and all I did was check the fluids and air pressure.

Oh, and one last thing, I bought the unit on eBay for $7800 and put about 10,000 miles and $11,000 dollars into it since 08'.

Hello Kris.

We also see your Barth .

We enjoyed verry much.
We check and I translated with ... coldness every word posted by you in connection with your vehicle.

We think is amazing.
We should like to have it.

My name is Viorel Cernat and 42 aged .

I am a married man ,and I have 2 twins boys of 15 years old.

We live in Bacau,Romania EUROPE.

In the last 8 months I have been looking for a motorhome with decent condition.

Now, I strongly believe in my chance .
I also hope now to be lucky.

Your vehicle is offered for sale on e bay.
There are three days left until end of the sale.

Until then I'll do a proper evaluation so I can have your approval to sell the vehicle to me.

So, for better communication, can I have your e mail address?

Dear Viorel,

This may be your lucky day! I have it on good authority that Kris, in addition to being a Barth owner, is also the Crown Prince of the Kingdom of Booali. Unfortunately, a government over-throw forced him to flee, but not before he acquired the sum of 100 million dollars US, which he hid in a suitcase, just outside of Bacau City, Romania. Last I heard, Kris was offering a $10mil US Finder's Fee to anyone assisting him to retrieve this treasure.

If you wish to participate, please provide the following:

1. Full name, address & physical description
2. All your bank account numbers
3. All your credit card numbers
4. Cashier's check for $10,000US to serve as a Good Faith escrow (refunded when treasure is divided up)

Viorel,

I'm willing to believe you may be legitimate and if so I'll apologize for all Americans who are the most continuously scammed individuals on Earth making us very cynical.

Please provide us with two simple things:
Your phone number with times you can be reached and an explanation as to why you have a Canadian Yahoo account although you claim to be from Romania.

I recognize that sometimes translating can give the wrong message and I believe your translation software made you sound a lot like a Nigerian scam artist. Here's hoping you are a legitimate human being.

Corey

We have had one member who purchased a Barth from the left coast (Washington State I think) - drive it across the USA - ship it to England. I too was skeptical of that one as well.

In regards to this... His IP does ping from Bacau,Romania and his phone number doesn't seem to ring of a scam so he is probably legit.

Eyes wide open to Kris - Good luck on your potential purchase to Viorel Cernat.

One last thing... I've been in this coach and several other members inspected it in Milford Indiana - I am a Diesel Truck Mechanic and without a doubt can tell you that this coach is mechanically sound - I would not hesitate to drive this anywhere. New paint - everything works well!!!

Some research on the net shows Viorel posting on several Venezuelan bus sites looking for a rig. I am fairly convinced he's for real and would take him seriously.

Maybe Canada and Romania share the .ca designation, who knows.

I was skeptical because when I entered his name in a search engine most of the sites that came up were flagged by my virus scan. If he turns out to be legit, I will be the first to apologize. You have to admitt that this letter had all the earmarks of the scam letters we have all received.

Better safe than sorry.

If you sent an email or post in Romanian and used a web based translator, you too would sound like a scammer. I've never seen a scammer (of the Nigerian scam variety) dare post to a public board. It would be like scam suicide!!

The Jones' have their Barth on EBay and list Barthmobile in their ad. I'm sure that's why Mr Cernat contacted him here.

He has a funny name. All my scheme letters come from people with funny names.

I have just received a copy of Viorel Cernat's Romanian Identity Card.

I think he's is one to be taken seriously.

Corey saw it too. Looks legit to me. Corey, what are your thoughts?

I would definitely take him seriously. Quite frankly, a con can't get your money if you're diligent anyway, all they could do is waste your time.

I would be very interested in Mr. Cernat if I were selling something he was interested in. I'm guessing he is the Romanian version of most Barth lovers, a high quality junkie with a panache for nostalgia.

It's also worth noting that many Euro countries tax new items at many times the rate of used. This makes used items very low quantity and high priced there. At some point smart buyers go abroad as shipping is easily overcome by the price differential.

Egads....I never meant to start such a firestorm over an attempt at a little sophmoric sarcasm Sorry

Viorel, I apologize.....You are who you say you are.....Your interest in a Barth acquisition is legitimate.

I hope you find exactly what you're looking for......

And to really add insult, in Romanian, Lee means Dirty Bathwater!

The great news is Cernat translates to Jones in English, so he won't need to change the lighted entry handle after all ROTFLMAO
