Yep...hot, humid, and all the other reasons we retired to Colorado...be that as it may, we may be here thru the summer...I'm sure this is just a heat wave, and that it will cool off by July...T is doing great, but recovery is about 6-12 months...I'll retrieve Scrap in 2-3 weeks, I hope, and bring her down here...guess you guys aren't quite feeling a pinch. Plan on us descending to AZ next winter...m

I'm still looking for a "modern" (94-95) Airstream Classic Motor Home. Also looking at some nice used Barths. Would I still be welcome here if I ended up with a Barth? Are they considered "kin" to the Airstreams?

I searched the forums for a front hub when we threw an axle...spent 10 agonizing days in a motel in Kingman Arizona while they looked for a hub, AND, they called Airstream, which cost us another three days for them to get a "we don't have that information..."
I(ok, my wife) found the Barthmobile forums, and in one day I not only found what I still believe were the last two hubs on earth for us, they were NIB-new in box- and i bought both, had them shipped from Ames, Minnesota speed-way, and we were on the road a day later...sometimes, you just have to do the work the folks you are paying are supposed to do. Main point, here, is that the Barthmobile is a well-engineered rig, and has the same chassis...thus, the Barthmobile forums is an excellent source of problem-solving and parts...similar situations seem to occur, and they are a source you should highlight in your bookmark list. I still haul the 40 pound extra hub, as as long as I have it, I will probably never need it, but I do believe in Murphy's law and all the corollaries...and, yep...I was(and still am in heart) a Boy Scout/Explorer...I would love to see some one integrate an Airstream/Barthmobile site...I don't have that kind of education, but it would open up new communications and double the chassis information highway...Barthmobile would have been my second choice, if I hadn't owned a '68 Overlander first...AS rules, to me, but Barth is a mighty fine rig...m
Show up at any place I'm parked, and Barth-or-not...yer welcome

I second (or third) that. Barth made some very solid coaches and the owners are just as strange as us. We sure don't see many out west, but they always get my attention.

Yeah, well, some folks think I'm strange for using my Trailer Trash Queen title as shameless self-promotion...and they would be correct...I've got a $1 tiara(actually 2), a baton thingie that has finally quit blinking when I hit a bump, a silver thingie I never did figure out, a tootsie roll pop 'bouquet' working on its fourth rubber band, and an attitude befitting the royalty I am...yet there are those who would consider me strange...peasants come to mind, even though I be one...but I got class, flamingo ear rings that double as table cloth weights, a large supply of 16 ounce cups that...uhm...enhance my otherwise unremarkable bosom profile, a pair of fuzzy slippers in an appropriate shade of pink, and a shameless sense of politics that could have landed me in DC(my upstanding morals wouldn't allow me to stoop so low...or it could be bad knees...)...but, yes, there ARE those who would decry my status and accuse me of being different...I suspect that some of them own Airstreams, Barthmobiles, and those hideous fiberglass things...Lordy!!!it's hard to maintain nobility when you ain't got none. Until you have basked in the shade of a pink and white parasol, whilst sitting in a reclaimed recliner, brandishing a cheap beer in the middle of the desert, you haven't found a complete life...of course, that's only my opinion, but it's the only one that counts, and, as usual, it is correct...

I'm very very pleased with my 95. Keep up the search! It worth the effort.

What's a "Barth"! Is that like worshing your hands?

Google Barth, and prepare for an education...a worthwhile venture.

Exclamation Talk to me!

TALK TO ME!

OK gang, I found another one! This time it's a '95 360 Diesel Pusher Classic. It's on EBay as: 1995 Airstream Diesel Pusher 1995 Airstream Diesel Pusher | eBay

Take a look and tell me what y'all be thinkin'. The owner assures me that the marred look on the front is a reflection. He has yet to forward me a clear photo of the front, but promised to do so.
If you have experience with this era of diesel pusher, please share your experiences. I've had a gas classic, but never a diesel and never a pusher.

TALK TO ME!

No experience here, but I am surprised that nobody has hit the "buy it now" button on this one yet.
