Howdy folks,

My in-laws own a 1976 Barth 21'. As he has had a stroke and can no longer drive, I have been asked to find out a fair value for the Barth, and work on getting it sold.

Thanks

Geoff

Since it's a 21', I've changed the header and edited the text- and moved to this forum...Rusty

Welcome to the Forums!

email photos to me; don't use the attachment feature. Size them to 8" @72 ppi.

Depending on actual size, mileage and condition, it could be worth $2-5K.

Rusty,

Thank you for your quick reply. I can't get into your profile and I don't have your e-mail address. Mine is geoffkeyes@Hotmail.com, hit me there and I'll e-mail you from there. Thanks for your help.

Duvall Wa? I grew up there back when it was a very small town of 310 people. Great place back then, too crowded for us now but we still come back every year or so to visit some friends. Big Grin

If anyone's interested in this coach, Duvall is a 30 mile drive from Seattle. I'd be happy to go take a look at it and give you my non-mechanic's opinions.

Actually The Barth is in Bellevue. I can meet you there to provide access on pretty short notice.

OK, so here are the pictures. I know it got annual tune ups up until about 2 years ago. It also needs tires, and probably batteries. Roger, I'd love to take you up on your offer, I'll even buy you lunch. 2-5k was the first opinion with no pictures, what do you think now? We don't need to get top dollar, and likely the proceeds will go to a WWII vets organization. The owner was a combat ground pounder in Italy in WWII.

Thanks

Geoff

One of my uncles was a ground pounder in in Italy, Po valley, could they have been in the same company?
And by the way I may be interested.

Tim,

I will find out what unit he was in. If you are interested, that would be great! It's time for it to find a new home, or to be a new home. See above, there is a gent named Roger who is willing to look it over and give his opinion. You might want to PM him.

I know you were looking for a price range. Looking at the pics you posted and passing it on to a good home I think you are in the range at around 3k. If a new owner put a few grand in new tires, brakes, and general other hoses and belts, they would have a nice 5k coach. I am glad you are on the west coast. My other might not understand a 3rd coach. She is already worried about a trailer showing up some day.

Hope your dad recovers well. good luck with your sale.

Welcome to the forums! It appears to have a 2" receiver.

Ted,

As Rusty said it does have a receiver, and I can measure it for you, I'm probably going over there tonight or tomorrow.

AS I said above, we don't need to get top $, but I think 3K is fair, and I'd rather sell it to someone who wants it, than scrap it or donate it to who knows where.

Geoff
