The Barth Data Tag - 1963 ~ 1998
Click Images For Larger View
Below are images of the Barth Data Tag plate found in, on and around our coaches and trailers. It could give weight ratings, tire sizes and pressures, chassis manufacturer, coach length, floorplan, dates of manufacture and build numbers. We are collecting this information to determine how many Barths are still left and try to get a better understanding of production figures and chassis makes for each year. Each image opens up to a larger view of the tag. If you have this info on your coach, please forward a picture of the tag and coach to bill_ny@barthmobile.com

Barth Trailers & Pickup Camper Insert
1963 ~ 1968

Frame Stamp - 1964 Trailer

1966 Trailer

1967 Pickup Camper Insert
 
• The trailers were stamped in the tongue area "A" frame and most had a tag located on the outside around the entrance way. (year/month/sequential build/length)
• 1963 - 1967 (Barth Trailer Company) trailers followed a sequence of the year being represented by a letter with a number for the month. The camper inserts used the digits of the year. So, for a 1967 trailer built in May it would be represented by an "E5" whereas a Camper Insert would use "67" at the end of the number sequence with nothing identifying the month of production.

Late 1973 RV
 
• 1968 - early1971 the tag sequence was a little confusing as it used a 3 digit code from Jan to Sep and a 4 digit code for Oct - Dec. to designate the year and month. No effort was placed on separating the digits. Several different types of tags were used.
• Trailers no longer used a letter to denote the year. (year/month/sequential build/length)
• 1969 - 1972ish the length was not included in the data tag number for the MotorHomes, just the trailers noted the length. (year/month/sequential build)
• MH stood for Motor Home - MC was for a Motor Coach - Same meaning
• 1972ish - mid/late 73 the length was included in the data tag number for the RV. (year/month/sequential build/length)
• late 73 the Floor Plan was included in the data tag number. (year/month/sequential build/length/floorplan)

• 1978 - 1980 the floorplan was now designated with the letters FP before the designation. (year/month/sequential build/length/floorplan)
• 1963 to 1980 it was not uncommon to find the data tag number being used as the vin#. 1981 was when the Federal Gov. mandated a uniform 17 digit code that used the vehicle chassis as the registration info.
