New 2012 Itasca Ellipse 42QD

Oh man! I've been drooling over that floorplan for a while! and still seriously considering it! I first saw it in the Winnebago - Just curious, what made you pick the Itasca Ellipse 42QD over the sister Winnebago Tour 42QD?

Gratz to you - let us know how it goes.

Nice, that is a great floor plan. We liked the Itasca interior better then the Winny.

VERY sweet. At The Rally in Louisville last year the 2011 was on display and DW had to be physically restrained to keep her from signing things. Our 2007 Ellipse will be paid off in only 15 more years and then she can think about it.

Congratulations and all the best. You're going to just love it.

Fantastic floorplan! So much so, I see the Dutch Star has copied it for 2013.

We picked the Itasca over Winnebago due to the color schemes, DW really liked the lighter color counter tops versus the darker color, shows less dirt. Also the Itasca came standard with a few items that were options on the Tour. I liked the paint scheme better on the Ellipse.

Thanks all, had our 1st outing this weekend and everything was good except the dishwasher kept getting fault codes and the front end had a slight "shimmie" above 55 MPH. Took in to dealer to get it corrected. Everything else worked great, next outing is this weekend.
