Does anyone know for sure if this was Lee's Barth. It was posted by Steve VW here.

So are Lee and Shirley still alive? Are they healthy enough to reconcile with us? It sure would be nice to get more history for our Barth owners.

Kevin i am not sure. He was long time president of the Barth Rangers. My coach’s previous owner got all the books and repair service, & parts manuals on the 3208t cat motor, the Allison trans service and parts Manual, parts and service manual for the kubota 7500 gen, and parts and service Manual for the Gillig chassis. He also gave blue prints for everything and manuals for all acessiores. I have the copy of co, the original order to From dealer to Barth, and the invoice from Barth to dealer and the copy of floor plan an copy of check paying Barth.
Have a Merry Christmas!

Thanks Doug! Some interesting stuff. The third link RVlife wants you to join so I closed the link.

I should be more specific in my thoughts. What I want is for Lee to share the written knowledge about our Various Barth campers and coaches. I have been told at several get together celebrations, "several Barth files remain in Lee's possession." The files contain valuable information we all could use. According to my first post we would learn more about the fate of the information. See the circled portion of the news letter from the Rangers.

I keep digging around here. I found Hank Wadley's last post was before I was a member. Although, I was searching for a Barth Class A coach before I became a member of Barthmobile. Here is a page showing Hank posted on our site 58 times. Note also that his last post says he posted 70 times. I will send a Private Message to Hank Wadley. I rather doubt there will be a reply since he has not posted in over 5 years.

There were other members that promised to contact Lee Merriman, but I do not recall any actual contact being posted here.
I hope 2018 will bring us back together with all the lost literature.
