Winnebago Adds New Floorplan to 2012 Itasca Ellipse Line-Up
"Our top-of-the-line Itasca Ellipse adds another stunning floorplan to its lineup for 2012 – the 42JD," said Roger Martin, vice president of sales and marketing for Winnebago. "There's not just one thing that makes this floorplan appealing – there are many, like the enormous bathroom in the rear with his and her sinks, or the dual wardrobes in the bedroom, or the ultra-comfortable lounge area with opposing couches. Or, you can go outside and fully appreciate the exterior beauty of this coach, with its powerful Maxum chassis that offer unsurpassed drivability and storage."
The Ellipse 42JD features three slide-outs, with a full-wall slide on the street side, according to Winnebago. It also has two TVs in the living area – a 32-inch LED HDTV mid-coach and a 40-inch LCD HDTV in the front overhead. The dining area offers a buffet with an extendable dining table, chairs and a four-door refrigerator. A residential-style Maytag French door refrigerator is optional. The galley features "Pantry x2," offering double the pantry storage thanks to swing-out doors for improved storage and function. High-end Corian solid surface countertops, backsplash and sink covers are additional galley highlights.
The large master bath includes his and her sinks and a large curved "Big Shower" with skylight, dual master bath wardrobes and optional stacked washer and dryer. A guest bath is positioned for easy access mid-coach. The bedroom features the "Ideal Rest" powered king bed and large dual wardrobes along with a 26-inch LCD HDTV and a rear stereo system with an AM/FM/CD/DVD player, iPod, and MP3 input and built-in alarm clock.
"The Itasca Ellipse has made a big step forward in 2012 with the glazed cabinetry and polished tile floor that make this coach truly first class," said Pat Leach, owner and president of Leach Camper Sales in Lincoln, Neb. "The finish of the ceiling in the living and bedroom areas also adds to the beauty and overall look of the coach. The coach shows very nice."
The Itasca Ellipse offers two additional floorplans in its 2012 lineup:
The diesel triple slide 42QD features Winnebago's extendible sectional sofa with a 40-inch TV just opposite. This bath-and-a-half floorplan features a spacious bedroom, with a king bed, well-appointed kitchen with pull-out island and plenty of interior and exterior storage, according to the company.
The 42AD features "incredible" spaciousness with four slideouts, especially in the mid-coach lounge area with an extendible sectional sofa and "Rest Easy Multi-Position Lounge" both featured, according to Winnebago. The fully-equipped kitchen is in the front of the coach, with a luxurious bedroom in the rear that features both a wardrobe and chest of drawers.
