If anyone can give me some info on the Barth Euro I would appreciate it. I'm considering purchasing one but can find little information on and really have only seen pictures of one here at barthmobile.

Did Barth buy the chassis and shell from FMC? I've seen FMC references and remember those coaches from years ago.

Thanks in advance for any info!

The early Regencies were stretched FMC bodies on MCC chassis. They morphed into bus-type bodies on MCC chassis, & later the MCC chassis was replaced by standard RV chassis. The Euro is a third body style on a standard RV chassis.

One Euro owner, Danny Z, is an active participant on the Barthmobile website. He's the guy who can answer specific questions about the Euro.

Thanks olroy. I pm'd Danny and he gave me some info. We'll be looking at this 28' Euro Saturday. I spoke with the owner today. It has the Chevy 454 engine. I'll get the data tag info and report back. Danny says watch for rust underneath so I'll be checking that out. If anyone else has any pointers please let me know!
