FOR SALE: 1985 BARTH ROYAL MOTORHOME
Here’s you chance to own one of the best coaches ever made. The Barth coaches were individually made to buyers specification, every one was custom built using the finest parts available. These were top of the line motor homes.
If you are unfamiliar with the Barth I suggest you go to Barthmobile.com and check out their website. Ask anyone who owns one and they will tell you with pride how much they love their rigs. Roll into any park or event and watch the people check you out and want to see the Barth. I get thumbs up everywhere I take it. Does it have a few flaws? Yes, it’s 25 years old, but it’s in overall great shape and has many more years of life in her. I hate to sell it. I’ve loved it since the day I bought it.
This Barth was first purchased from Biddulph Oldsmobile on 04/22/85 the list price was $71,000.
Some of its features are:
Data tag #9503/3203/32t-fp2

Well, she is a beauty! Failing clearcoat or not I think she will sell quickly to a person who is getting a good deal and will be happy. Have not seen white cabinets yet in a Barth but that is what Barth is all about. Good luck to the bidders and I hope she makes it to a GTG in the Midwest. I am guessing the paint is aftermarket as this is not traditional Barth paint work but I could be wrong...am I? Corion countertops cost so much but are so nice..wish mine had em.
What a really nice coach!
I have a question. I have a 1984 34ft Regal I bought last year. Where is your spare tire stored from the factory? I have never been able to find a spare tire carrier or storage in any of the compartments on mine for a spare. The previous owners towed a cargo trailer and kept it in there.
That's a question I have no answer to. I don't think there is one, but I'll let the experts have a go at it. I figured if I got a flat, I would call AAA.
Most larger late model RVs don't have a spare tire. To me it makes a lot of sense because you would then need a jack, lug removal equipment, etc. that would take a lot of space and add a lot of weight. Then there is the question of how many RVers would be able to use that equipment? The end result is that the larger the tires, the less likely you will see a spare.
My late model Corvette my late model BMW also are sans spare. In each case it was a good choice as the cars would essentially need to carry a set of four wheels and tires to accommodate the uni-directional tires and staggered wheels! At least the BMW gives my a sealant and a pump. The Corvette gives you Never Lost at some yearly fee.
So, I would say quit looking at this point, it probably isn't there. Trailer tires are another thing, but please don't get me started!!!

Our coach is a smaller brother to this one, being a 30T instead of a 32T. Ours was made with twin beds in back, and the spare fit in a bin under the driver side bed, accessible from outside.
I have seen several Regals with the spare mounted on the rear, which would leave more room in the bins.
84 30T PeeThirty-Something, 502 powered
The paint is not original, The guy I got it from said he paid 10 grand for the paint. Don't know how old it is. The sides look great but as I mentioned the clear coat is peeling off the roof. I get lots of complements on it.
