An advertisement from the first year the Barth was produced depicts a happy family with what appears to be a 27-foot model. In the early years, in order to show off their all-aluminum exteriors, Barths were devoid of much paint. By the early 1980s, anodized aluminum panels added a splash of color, and a few years later most Barths were painted in an array of colors. Since many Barths were custom made, they tended to have highly individualized color schemes. <br />

This early model is devoid of the distinctive back hump over the engine compartment that makes 1970s-era Barths easily identifiable. By the 1980s, Barth adopted a more traditional bus-like profile.
