Winnebago Aspect 26A/Itasca Cambria 26A

Recommended Posts

Dianne and I are looking to downsize.  One of the coaches on our list (just from internet searching) is the 2005-2008 Winnebago Aspect 26A/Itasca Cambria 26A.

We are in League City, TX (just south of Houston).  Would really appreciate it if anyone in the area would allow us to look at theirs so we can rule in/out that selection.

Thanks.

Don't know quite yet.

We have been spoiled by aspects of our three DP's over the last 19 years, but have places we know that we have not been able to go with our larger rigs. In the meantime, gasoline engines have progressed quite a bit (both power and economy) while diesels have become quite a bit more complex.

Not ruling in/out any power source, but at this point, looking for a better quality shorter coach.

Again, never seen an Aspect/Cambria 26A, but on paper like its size, long wheelbase/overall length, good power to weight ratio, good CCC, etc.  Could fall in love or be disappointed.  Smart enough to want to do more investigation before ruling anything in/out.

Did you sell your old coach?  I sold mine 2 weeks ago.

Bruce,

Yes, sold the Alpine to a nice couple from Washington state.  Going to miss driving that one, but are in the hunt for something 30' or under.  Hard to find fit and finish in the smaller ones. Same for acceptable WB/OL ratios.

Good looking unit! Brett, I get it...believe me....I get it. DW loves the larger coaches, me I get nauseated before every trip, no faith we are going to get there and back. Other than comfort and ride of the DP I do miss the simplicity and dependability of my C. I have seen many of the Ford V10's and V8's with over 300,000 miles on them still going strong with little out of pocket along the way.

Diesel technology since 1998 ish has made these engines a nuisance. Don't go this long :wacko: that tail was a tough one!

Thats funny.  I sold mine to a guy from the Seattle area.  My new to me coach drives just fine so i'm good to go when we get back from Hawaii next week.

Brett.

Have you looked at PPL?  They got some C's at Motorhomes of Texas, Ron Carver in Katy and Texas City, Holiday World in Katy and League City.

Carl,

Yes, there and other places.  Just have not found a 26A to look at.  May drive to Cleburne, there is on there and one in Kennendale. 

Hate to drive 600 miles without even seeing one to know if it will fit our needs. That is the purpose of this thread-- see if we can even eye ball one in the Houston/Galveston area.
