Hi. New member here in Arkansas. Been interested in Barths for some time, and now the wife and I are thinking it's time for our own coach. Still work for a living and retirement is still a bit down the road, since I'm just 45, but we'd like something to take one big trip a year and a few trips to the mountains and lakes in the Ozarks, as well as the occasional swap meet for my main hobby, which revolves around 70+ year old chevy pickups.
The Barth seems to be just what I need- solid, and mostly built on Chevy chassis, which makes it a bit less intimidating to me. Hoping to be able to post that we are owners soon!

About a year age I purchased a Barth, California license BARTH93, that was for sale on your site that was stored in Chula Vista, Ca.

Unable to find a fuel cap That fits. Does anyone know which fuel cap fits on a Barth diesel pusher.

Been lurking here for over a year!

measure inlet pipe and go to a truck parts house. If it as a gillig chassis call their parts house with the vin number and they will know what cap fits

hmm HMM, is that Barth ranger number 2279? I also did not see that data tag number in the data tag list. Looks to be well cared for. You will enjoy your BaRTH.

This is my first motor home, diesel and automatic transmission. The first thing that needed attention was the tires the right front outside edge was almost bald over an inch wide. Replaced the tires and checked the brakes. Had the steering box overhauled because the top seal leaked. The last set of coach batteries did not last six months. Putting enough solar on the roof to maintain the coach batteries.

Rear springs are sagged about 2.5 to 3 inches.
The 7KW Kwaytt genset attempts to start but quits when starter is released probably the regulator board. The woman I bought this from said the generator worked.

Have enjoyed Barth so far!!

Click on the emoji to find out more about Barth Rangers. Computer
They were the group of Barth Owners that were before Barthmobile.com. They are like dinosaurs now (extinct).
If you can verify the rangers number to me more clearly or let me know if the guess is correct I might be able to tell you who owned your coach as a Barth Ranger.

Contacted Spartan Chassis about acquiring another fuel cap.
Was informed by that Barth provided the fuel cap and they do not have a part number for the fuel cap.

Checked with Napa no joy.
