Would still really like to see this, if you get time...

Is there any truth to the "only 2 built" story? If so, I just happened to stumble upon the other.

Would have knocked on the door of the house, but the reaction of the two (rather excitable) dogs suggested maybe visitors were not welcome.

I'm an Avion guy myself, but knew upon seeing it this had to be something special.

Wow Keith a rare find indeed. That unit looks to have led a sheltered life. It is in crazy good looking external condition. Avion so you know the value of all aluminum construction.

It’s always fun when we get someone new to the group from Minnesnowta. You are not near by or there would be much more snow.

Your welcome to come meet up with like minded folks at our get together in Springfield Mn in June. I’m in Waseca.

Thanks for sharing.

I went back and looked at the previous posts. The bustle butt and the windows. From just this one picture I suspect this may be the one that started this post originally? Someone bought and brought to Minnesnowta? Zip Dee awnings over the small windows could have been added in the redo. Can see new air conditioner. Original post shows a vented door for something. This picture shows a plate covering that spot.

WOW! Thanks for the excellent photo! A rare bird, indeed.

Just when you think you've seen them all, one like this pops ups. Roadworthy shape too.

Have Barth, will travel Tooling Along

There is almost enough detail and quality of workmanship to think Barth built this 5th wheeler. They get my vote anyway.

Dana,
I'm sort of thinking along the same lines as you are and am wondering if it's the same fifth wheel posted earlier in 2021. Nevertheless, it's a really unique Barth and it would be nice if there were two of them still in existence. Keith MN thanks for posting. Any chance that you know Cesar Millan's phone number? He could be very helpful under the circumstances Wink

Correct - this one was spotted in the land of beer and cheese (aka Wisconsin), somewhere near Kenosha. I'd be more specific, but I didn't actually make note of where the place was!

I've definitely seen Barth motorhomes (there are, in fact, at least two up in my neck of the woods, an hour plus north of the Cities). And I'd heard of Barth trailers. But this one really turned my head!

From what I could see, my bet is that it's largely unrestored but has been made functional, and gets around in the warm months. You can't see it from this angle, but the right curved window had a pirate flag (skull and crossbones) hanging in it - take that however you like!

But I'm not certain this is the same trailer as in earlier posts. Look at the nose, under the front windows, near the Barth emblem. On the earlier-pictured trailer, this panel appears to be made from two pieces of aluminum (line of rivets going down it, just left of center). The one I saw, it appears to be all one piece of aluminum, with no seam I can see.

Being from Waseca, you may have heard one of my projects... some recent technical improvements at radio stations KOWZ, KRUE, and KFOW. (I work as a broadcast engineer.)

If the various classic aluminum coaches are welcome, perhaps my Avion (see below) would fit in with the gang.

Keith, welcome aboard they let almost anyone in, even Chris craft drivers. If I had a beefier TV for our first camper I think we might still have the one we first checked out, a short Avion! I don't remember the length but probably a 19 and Avion class! A friend referred to them as Airstream without the tunnel ROTFLMAO

Can’t see the forest for the trees sometimes. I was looking at all the other stuff never noticed the rivets. I also reread all the previous post. Looked like Marc was rebuilding his. The Facebook link is void.

Your would certainly be welcome. We are not a snobbish group.

When I was at Cabela’s I often listened to those stations. I’ll have to check it out. They were some of the few that would penetrate the building. Often had them on in my office.

North of the cities there are a number of coaches. Some friends some we have not meet.

Your trailer looks very nice. Thanks for showing it to us.

Thanks again for posting.
