FWIW, we own a 1989 Airstream 345LE motorhome with a P32 chassis
Welcome to the site. I am glad to hear that our knowledge with the P32 Chassis has paid off for you.

I have noticed many "Visitors/Future Barth Owners" to our site. At any time, I can see what forums they are in. I don't know what post they are reading, just which part of the site they are in. Most of the time they are in our "Tech Talk Forum".

I am glad that we could help you. You were nice enough to come back and share your saga. Please, if you don't mind, share with us any and all part numbers.

To quote Gunner "Yeah, but Barth's out of business. What about when you need parts?" that statement doesn't hold true. You proved it. Airstream is in business, and look at what you went thru. It's not like the Chassis is any different between a "1989 Airstream" and a "1989 Barth Regal" with the P32 Suspension. You might have a longer rear overhang, but that's about it.

Anyway, welcome to the site Mike. Anyone who thought enough to come on and thank us is welcomed back for some more abuse. Who knows, we just might talk you into a Barth... Big Grin

Thanks for the welcome, Bill.
Part numbers...the only one I have is the hub, but I will get the others when we get our MH out of jail.

Chevy hub, Part#15585443, for front.

I wasn't aware of anything Barth except for an author, but I'm gonna learn...

We looked at Airstreams, and liked them. However, the adjustable air bag tag axle and all the storage of an equivalent Barth won.
