    Hi Peter,
    I think I saw one at a dealers in Tewkesbury about 4 years ago,It wasnt called a Winnebago,or Itasca, as far as I remember,my feeling was that it came from one of the many small converters in the midlands? I could be totally wrong.I thought Winnebago Itasca was a big big RV motorhome,one of those bus sized things,hey but what do I know!

      Thanks Ian,
      have been looking into them further seems they are made by C.I. and are called ITACA I blame google for misdirection. They do look interesting though.
      Will try to find out more. If anyone knows anything interesting about them please post it.
      Update.
      C.I. motorhomes are in Grimsby UK retail headquaters (at least now)but manufactured in Italy and only do large motorhomes now.
      Itaca model was 15ft 7ins long by 6ft 6ins wide. Full wash room with cassette toilet and hand basin.
      Still looking for more info

          Thanks Ian,
          I'd spotted that one while searching. Trying to track down a MMM review that was done on the ITACA. About 1997 I think. I trawled through the outandaboutlive reviews last night but could not see it, but might have missed it with blurred eyes syndrom.
          The Itaca on autotrader is only £7995 http://motorhomes.autotrader.co.uk/s...5e06c7c/advert
          so even better value.
          The info I found said 16ft 6ins long so about the same as an R25 .

              Made in Italy, I once had a look inside one on a Campsite in France. They seem very tall

                    I love this, seems so much roomier than a Romahome.

                    I don't suppose they still make anything like it?

                      I've been chatting to a former owner of a Itaca who loved his and had it for 10yrs. However from what he knows only a very few were sold in the UK. They never caught on for some reason.
                      Nu-venture do a similar design with there Surf model.

                        I had a chat with a former owner of an Itaca he had his for 10yrs and loved it, but did say it could be exciting in high winds. Maybe thats why it came with a 90l fresh watertank for ballast. Still think its a shame they didn't sell better.
                        Variety is the spice of life as they say.

                            I agree and a Surf is about twice the price.

                              I have some serious questions about the NuVenture Surf, its weight and payload. When i have tried to find out everyone seems very vague plus which the furniture seems to be made from MDF which is heavy and not very durable - but I might be wrong.
