Itasca Cambria 26A

Looking at a used 2005 Itasca Cambria 26A with less than 10K miles. Appears to be the Ford 450 chassis. Any info users can share out there on this RV and V10 engine is appreciated.

I just sold a 2006 Cambria 26A on the Ford 450 chassis with tow/haul. I pulled a 2000 Malibu behind it. The coach is well laid out, has ample storage if you only take what you need. I made some mods to it, like shelves in the bedroom, a folding door between the kitchen and bath. I must say I did not like the horse shoe shaped lounge. I replaced the lounge chair with a better one. I used a Travesac on the corner bed, it is very hard to make up. The A/C heat pump are great. I highly recommend the rear air bags, makes a big difference in handling. The rest of the mods were a electric element in the water heater with a lighted switch. Small decorator changes in the living area for more comfort. Make sure the TV has been updated for HD. I averaged about 10mpg towing. Plenty of power for mountains. I think you will like the model, it is well thought out. Reason I sold. I got out of the RV hobby after 40 years of it.

Lzzyblueye,

Thanks for the report. I have a Travasac that will fit just fine.

We have a 2005 Winnebago Aspect 26A, which is the twin of your Cambria. They are identical.
We love our Aspect, easy to drive, well built, good strong proven engine. We have almost 70,000 miles on it, 50,000 of which was put on by the previous owner.
The V10 engine is virtually bulletproof, and the 5 speed TorqueShift trans gets the job done. We get about 9.5-10MPG not towing and about 8.5MPG towing our Subaru.
The only thing I don't like is the corner bed, as mentioned previously it's a bear to make up. We use suspenders to hold the bottom sheet in place, works quite well. You do get used to the bed eventually. Better than a jack knife sofa!
You may PM me if have any questions, I'll be glad to answer them if I can.

Here is my solution to the corner bed. Put a nice throw on it with big pillows and it looks like it is made up - but reality is the blanket and sheets are not smooth under there. I also use the suspenders.

Baraff, your response is much appreciated. I look at the unit tomorrow and hoping it has the 5-speed as well. Looks like it was introduced around 2005.
