2005 Itasca Cambria motorhome

I know, not a Sportsmobile, just trying to get the word out. At 26' this could be a realistic 4wd conversion for someone who wants an extra large, extra nice Sportsmobile. Also, I'm just a couple hours from Ujoint! He could make it pretty amazing. I've done just about every other possible upgrade.

2005 Itasca Cambria
condition: excellent
cylinders: 10 cylinders
drive: rwd
fuel: gas
odometer: 51409
paint color: silver
size / dimensions: 26'
title status: lien
transmission: automatic
2005 Ford E-450 chassis
V-10 with 5 speed (Torqshift) transmission
lifted rear with upgraded suspension
Full body paint!
Lots of solar (360 watts on two battery banks)
Fiberglass roof
BRAND NEW tires (7, 6 plus spare) and color matched wheels
Bike and moto rack optional (holds scooter or small street bike and 4 bicycles)
L-track on roof for securing extra cargo
Sleeps 4-5 comfortably
Ultraleather front seats
Big U-shaped dinette for family meals and games
Full awning with weather cover
Electric step
Keyless entry on all doors (side entry included)
Outdoor entertainment system
Outdoor drawer/slide storage
2 Fantastic vents inside
Separate shower/bathroom from vanity/dressing area
Upgraded Toshiba TV/DVD player
Huge 12v only refrigerator, runs on solar, uses no propane
Convection style microwave
3 burner cooktop
Very nice cabinetry, best I've ever had in a motorhome
Day/night shades throughout
Ducted heat and AC
Many added power points and USB charging plugs throughout
4 walkie talkies
Factory inverter for running TV on the road
passenger seat swivels around for more of a 'family room' feel
Extra chair inside side door has been removed and stored. It is available and like new.
All interior lighting has been switched to LED, very low power draw
Powered and heated mirrors
Battery connect switch for combining batteries if starter battery runs low
Outdoor table hangs from side of RV
Sound system includes theater surround sound (many speakers plus subwoofer) and can be played from stereo or through TV
Onan generator with low hours (I'll have to check how many)
Very large tanks, we've never run out of water
Outdoor shower
Fully contained outdoor plumbing area (not hanging under unit)
Cartridge style water heater under sink

This is a very well kept and clean RV. We have taken many long trips in it but aren't able to use it much these days.
Absolutely no rust or mechanical issues. We took it all the way to Oympia Washington last summer and if I had time I would be comfortable doing so today! It is dirty (mostly pollen) in the pictures and has not been cleaned out yet. We keep it mostly ready for a trip except food.

In the last year rear suspension, tires and wheels, rear rack, solar and several interior upgrades have been done. The tires probably have 5k on them. Also, new intake and custom tuner, new spark plugs, filters and most fluids.

Ford 6.8l V10 with 5 speed tranny gets excellent mileage for an RV, 11 MPG at 65-70 mph
Drives like a sedan, very peppy and not at all underpowered. I have also towed a car with this motorhome and it gets about 1 mpg less, does not struggle at all towing. Try that with one of the new Euro RVs!

10.5' tall
26' long, only 4' longer than an extended van. Easy to drive and park! My wife is comfortable driving it as well.
All books, manuals and records
NEVER smoked in, no pets, odors or stains. Carpet and upholstery are in perfect condition

Come see it on a weekend in Maryville, I travel during the week.
I have a lein on it so title is not immediately available but I'm easy to work with.
No trades

Matching Yamaha Zuma scooter available also if it doesn't sell first.

The only bad I can think of is a few cracks in the paint on the rear cap and some scratches down low on the sides from brushing up against bushes on gravel roads.

Thanks for looking
Any other pics or info available upon request

Currently vanless. Weird.

That is super nice, I remember when you posted this up after you first got it, how long ago now? We’ve been looking at options for several years now for something a bit bigger to do extended trips in, looked at these along with the overhead cab versions as well as travel trailers, but alas haven’t pulled the trigger on anything yet. Add 4X4 and you’ve got one hell of a beast there, GLWS!

Thanks REF, we've had it about 3 years. The kids are getting to teen age in a hurry and don't want to go much anymore. Kristie and I would rather get further off the beaten path in a van but we've taken this rig a lot of places where most wouldn't!

Very, very nice unit. If only... no funds right now but this would be one I would like to have. Waiting on a property sale but that may take up to 6 months. Letter of intent coming this week but good luck with the sale anyway. A Ujoint conversion would be awesome on that one.
All things being equal - fat people use more soap.

For anyone even considering one of these I should add that it is not as wide as your typical class C which helps with the fuel mileage as well as maneuverability. Instead, Winnebago put a really deep slide on it so when opened up it is still huge inside. Not bad when slide is closed either. We've spent plenty of nights on the road without moving the slide.
