Project Description

For Sale – 2005 Dethleffs I7870L 5 Ton Tag Axle Motorhome

Covered 56205 Miles

Left Hand Drive and as it is over 3.5 tons you would need Category C1 on your driving license.

We ordered this motorhome in late 2014 from Lowdams of Nottingham and purchased it new in January 2005. We specified left hand drive as we envisaged touring abroad for the majority of time, which we have done for the past 16 years.

This 5 ton motorhome gives you a massive 950 kilo pay load and with a scooter rack in the garage makes it easy to carry a scooter up to about 300cc, we have a 2004 Honda Dylan 125cc which we have carried since we purchased this motorhome, (this may be available).

We are only selling this motorhome as age and medical conditions don’t allow us to make much use of it any more. The engine is the last updated Fiat 2.8 jtd engine called the ‘Power Engine’ which was only produced and fitted to 2005 and 2006 motorhomes and possibly only fitted in left hand drive, it produces 146 BHP as opposed to the ordinary 2.8 jtd which only produces 125 BHP.

This is a lovely motorhome in good condition and with a transverse king size bed over the garage, pulldown double bed over the cab area and one single bed (the long settee) is suitable for short holidays and also long term easy touring including wintering in Spain or Portugal, it has taken us on many long journeys including down as far as Venice and Rimini in Italy.

Specification on purchase, normal Fiat controls plus in cab air conditioning, radio and integrated speakers, electric driver’s window.

Extras fitted at time of purchase include roof rack and ladder, scooter rack in garage, Webasto diesel heater, cruise control, reversing camera, 5 meter wind out awning, outside gas point for barbeque, outside 12 volt point for water pump, Cobra alarm system, security locks on habitation area, lockers, driver door and garage.

Extras fitted after purchase include Gaslow refillable gas bottles, solar panel, tow bar, and gas monitoring system in habitation area to detect any intrusion of gases.
