The novelty has worn off, I guess. This is a GREAT coach and we have had a lot of fun with it. As the listing says, it runs great and looks great. Everything works well.

Barth motor home construction was simply a carry over from (patented) Barth travel trailer construction. Motor home construction was not what is was for the purpose of gas mileage or rust prevention.

What really matters is it's not stick-and-staple. Let's stay on topic, which is that kokoken's Barth is for sale. java

And to extol the merits of the Barth Motor Coach. We should all do whatever we can to promote the value and sale of these motor homes. They are truly unique and our comments should focus on that Smiler

My beloved Barth has a new home in Harvey, ND. A nice retired Marine is on his way in it back to North Dakota.

I will ask him if he wants to attend Milford but he lives a long distance away in North Dakota.

Please open up my spot to anyone, though.
