For Sale: 1990 Barth Regal SE-31J
1990 Barth Regal SE-31J
Edelweiss, our 1990 Barth Regal SE-31J, is up for sale. It’s built like a tank, and makes a wonderful home on wheels for the solo adventurer, couple or small family. Edelweiss currently sits safely in storage in Spokane, Washington.
When we bought Edelweiss in 2012, it had 18,000 miles on the odometer, and the interior was showing signs of age and use. But mechanically and structurally, it was solid. We spent the better part of 6 months remodeling the interior: new wood flooring, custom beds, custom dining table and bench seating/storage, custom entry wall, the dark interior was painted white, installed a new head unit and speakers and we recarpeted the dog house area with a commercial-grade carpet.
At the time of purchase, we also bought all new tires, resealed the roof and all the windows, replaced the brake lights with new, and larger, custom LED lights and housings for better visibility, and installed a Roadmaster Reflex Steering Stabilizer for better handling.
Edelweiss was our beloved home on wheels for a year on the road, where we traveled around the US as a family of five, meeting awesome people and making new life experiences. Although we thought we’d never sell it, we’ve reached a point in our lives where it’s more of a need than a want. We have hopes of living overseas, and Edelweiss won’t be able to follow us.

Here are some “before” photos:
And here are some “after” photos:
- Virtually new Rand McNally RVND 7720 GPS is included – it’s too big to be useful in a car, so it’ll stay with Edelweiss.
- The dashboard A/C isn’t operable, as it needs to be recharged, but it’s an older R-12 (freon) based system, which is no longer available (legally). It would just need to be swapped out for a newer system in order to work again.
- The exterior paint has faded over the last couple years – it’s purely aesthetic, but there are inexpensive ways to touch it up (i.e. you can buy automotive spray paint and mask off the red and dark gray areas accordingly – we did this originally, and it works great, and it’s easy to find color matches at local auto stores) I have a can of the dark gray and dark red that we originally used.
- It has a generator, but we only used it once during our year of travel. It has low miles on it, but doesn’t currently want to turn over. A mechanic friend said it could probably just use a cleaning/tune-up.
- The roof mounted air-horn doesn’t work (it didn’t at time of purchase)
- The roof mounted antennae was removed and sealed (the previous owner forgot to lower it one day, ahem, and we didn’t plan on using it) but the raise/lower mechanism is still intact for future use.
