Somewhere there's a "busnut," who likes the Barth paint scheme. Maybe he graduated from a Barth & has fond memories.

Could this be one more BARTH "special order" to add to the long list of custom orders?

All Barths are Different

1. Side door

2. Barthy brow

3. Barthy bumpers.

4. And, of course, Barthy paint.

In my fantasies, if I had two motor homes, this would be one. It is too long, by far, to be the only one, though.

Big Grin I'll tell you... nothing in these images are manipulated to make it longer, taller, wider, or bigger... What you see, is what it is. hmm

Here are 2 more images for you.





I have been know to manipulate images in the past. Here is a photo of 3 of my service trucks parked next to each other... The problem: These were never parked next to each other. My driveway isn't that wide.

As usual, El Segundo Bill chimes in with a more scientific analysis of what we're seeing, though I don't see the "Barthiness," in the bumpers. Also, I see no evidence of the little red "Barth Motor Co." decal.

Maybe N.Y. Bill can zoom into his original images & detect such, if it exists. When I see that, I'll accept that it is another unusual custom Barth, not just an unusually beautiful Barth look-a-like.

Bill, very impressive photo-chopping! There's only one spot where I can pick out the manipulation. Wink

Was every Barth unique from every other one? Yes. However, they did all share one of a few different chassis options any given model year. This one is certainly a "bus" and not a body style known to any year of Barth. Plus the emblems missing? I can't imagine a typical Barth owner doing that either.

I've seen older SOB motorhomes (like mine) with modernized paint jobs that make them look like a Fleetwood for instance. I'm on the side of this one being a bus conversion that ended up painted like a Barth. Good choice on their part! Smiler

Yeah, I got a little lazy around the window in the middle service truck. I'll have to fix that one day.

Of course... doing this isn't going to help you either. Big Grin



Besides my service trucks and the different headlights in the above image, I stand by my earlier statement!!!

I am curious; what are the odds that both left rear wheels would stop with the lugs in the exact same position? I detect a few faint vertical lines that seem to have no reason to be there. MY old mind and eyes may be playing tricks on me. I dunno!

Many busnuts use front and or rear caps to modernize their coach, In this case it may be a Barth wide body front cap to make the coach classier than a Provost.
