Greetings and Happy New Years everyone. I am the new owner of the Barth Regency that
L78steve had for sale. Oddly enough it has ended up about 100 miles North of where Steve purchased it 2 years ago. We enjoyed 2958 miles of trouble free driving across the Southern US, from Asheville, NC to Northern California a first for me.
Many thanks to Steve for all the help to make the transaction a smooth one. Steve had taken very good care of this coach and all services were up to date. He thoroughly explained all operating systems, so thanks again Steve.
Looking forward to the Barth experience.
I toured your coach when Steve owned it. I helped Carol list the Barth for sale on here. If you need help here get my number off of Steve or send me a PM.
You have acquired a fine Barth. Caterpillar Regencies with the Gillig chassis were the peak of quality for Barth's coach building era.
What is the 76 in your screen name for?
Finally getting around to it.

Hi Steve. I remember reading some of your posts. Thank you.
The 76 is not very significant other than it’s my high school graduation year.
Sorry, meant Kevin.
I was going to guess it was a graduation year. The number is the same for me.
Post 7 more times and you will get the opportunity to edit and delete your own post.
Just for the record your picture posting folder is 0145. When your ready to post some more pictures of your Regency, I will be able to assist you. I had fun teaching Carol and Don how to post pictures on here. You have a sought after Barth. It is no wonder you traveled so far to get it.
Randy, you may have already used our search feature.
Way to go, another 76er.
I thought that was the number that was wanted. What should I be put in.
It is easy to confuse the numbers.
Your data tag is 9006-0145-34RDG-A1.
9006= built the 6 month of 1990. 0145= the consecutive build number. 34= the length. RDG= Regency Diesel pusher on a Gillig chassis. A1 is the layout of the interior.
PS Nick Cagle, please let me know if my information is correct.
Thanks Kevin I appreciate your help. Interesting significance of the numbers.
I hope I gave you the correct information. Nick knows this better than I know the significance of the Data Tag numbers.
Randy , Welcome to the forum from western PA .
What a fine coach you purchased . I wondered who ended up purchasing it .
Model:: Barth Regal
Length:: 25 ft
Engine:: New Chevy 454 HO
Data Tag Number:: 8606 3339 25FP2
Hey Randy you came to the right place. Welcome to the Barth site! A bunch of fine coaches and even more remarkable collection of owners; fruits, nuts, and vegetables! (Barth junkies...)
You have a good coach there. Kevin is partial to the Cat engines but I'm a Cummins guy now. We can usually help when needed. Kevin is especially good at photo tutorials, the Photobucket process can be tedious. (I should know, I've posted over 700 photos now, I told you I'm nuts...)
With another member out on the left coast we will have to think more seriously about a GTG out that way. I've not been west of the Rockies, a good reason to stray a bit.
Have Barth, will travel
86 Regal SE 33 Tag axle--"98" Monarch 37

Here we go again, drifting off topic, but since you mentioned it Steve VW, take a look at the top of this page. I do not know what attractions are there in Lexington, Nebraska. The page shows how far from Milford, Indiana, one would have to travel to get to Lexington Nebraska. Should we start a suggestion for our Milford, Indiana, get together in the get together forum?
All correct except for a small typo error.
Build number 0145 not 0135.
Thanks Nick. Never was good with numbers, even if it was a stray finger, one key to the left. Good thing you saw the typo, as I even had trouble finding the typo once you pointed it out.
