Wow, looks like an amazing job, what a lot of work you put in! We are impressed! Does your rear table go down to make a big bed?

the table does not make into a full size bed. just the 2 single beds.

Great work Mike. It may not be original, it's better than original. Your cabinet work is very nice indeed. Another Shasta saved from the scrap yard. And thats a good thing!

Hi Mike,
Your "little" trailer brings back fond memories.
I restored almost the same model and year. My wife and I had many great summers camping in it. I hope that you enjoy it as much as we did.

Have a great day!
Charlie

Very nice!! I looked for 2 years trying to find a older trailer to restore / modernize - I finally broke down and bought a new T@B.

Hi Mike, congraulations on compleating your restore job. It looks great!!Please explain where you started? I have a 1975 Barth class C and I want to change a few things or make a lot of changes. I had the motor checked and it is sound. It has only had 2 ownwers before me and it sat across the street from me foe many years till I finally talked him into selling it. I'm 4 years from retirement and want to retire in this. An Thanks Ryegaly information will be appreciated,

Yes I did but was very disappointed.I stayed 2 days and then went up to Sisters Oregon which I loved.Nothing there for restoring an Rv all new stuff.I think I know where I want to start does anyone know of any books on how to restoring an RV?I just don't want to take it apart then not be able to put it back. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Donna

Know what you mean. Many folks enjoy the ralleys but I find them too commercial. But then I don't like the big Walmarts or HomeDepot either. Prefer the local stores. What work do you want to do on your Barth?... The Sisters area is special, we need to get up there. Happy Trails!!

Hey Mike, Your remodel looks great! It reminds me of our first rv, a 1971 Shasta that I think was 17 feet long. Lots of good memories and happy trails in that baby....

Enjoy..

Yes I agree way to commercial. You would think they would think we are a part( small maybe) of the R.V. industry.Sister is a lovley place and there is a city park with water & a dump station in a lovley wooded area.
what do I want to do with my RV? LOL I'm sitting here chucckling to myself with that question.I've had the motor checked out and it is sound. It runs like a top going down the road.I have my water tank under the frig. I have a water leak.the tank will not stay filled. Now the guy from Barthmoblie.com Dave said those tanks are almost bomb proof.so I think the problem is one of the connections or hoses.But how to get to it seems the problem. One guy at an repair shop said I'd have to take out the wheel well to get to the tank and that would cost alot of money.I'm taking up the carpeting now and going to bare floor. So in my opinion which isn't much.is I think the logical way to check this all out is to take up the floor while theres nothing there and check the connections? whats your opinion?

I think I would have to agree with Dave. It's more than likely a deterioated fitting or hose. Proably the hose going to the water pump. Does the pump work properly? Most fridges have an acess area underneath them. In other words they don't sit on the floor like a home fridge. But of course it is an ry. That means nothing ti absolute See if you can take a piece of the cabinetry off below the fridge to take a peek. Check with Dave and ask if he knows of anyone with a coach simular to yours.
