I can understand it though. A $400k MH that you can't sell because on a lark you tried to see if one colored chartreuse and fuchsia or have reenact of the battle at missionary ridge on the exterior is a expensive mistake to make. The thing that argues against my posit however is some of the terrible materials the manufacturers use making bed spreads, window treatments and covering chairs in soooo many MH. You would think they get some of their ideas from the California institute for the criminally insane! ;-)

Yes, I don't know who has come up with what seems to be universal colors no matter what the brand coach - they are all so very similar it seems - just a variation of different swirls of dull colors. We had a very bright/vibrant coach before - a Sportscoach Pathfinder and it was bright yellow, black and white. We called it the bumble bee. Everyone loved it.

We are still working on a name for the new one. Have narrowed it down to The Boss, The Seeker, or Big Mac (we are the McDonald's - well not THE McDonald's but that is our last name!).

How about just "McDee,". "Take this out to McDee, honey." "We need to get a set of stainless steel pots for McDee." "Isn't McDee lovely.". :-)

Our coach has some red in it. That looks pretty nice. I was hoping the one we could find was the "Sage" one. It has a lot of green in it and looks super sharp I think. But alas .....

The misses and I were talking about this just last night. I wanted to get a coach custom painted triple black with lots of clearcoat. Then have a big chrome Jolly Roger slapped in the middle and a couple of flaming guitars on each side. The look on the misses face was priceless.
I've always wanted to be a rock star and this is as close to it as I'm going to get.

My current vehicle is black so I call it Vader.

We purchased a dark ruby 2012 QD from LD. Very impressive coach.

Your tires are probably aired up at 120 psi all around. I was not overly impressed with the ride until I had it "four corner" weighed. Now run 115 steer, 90 drive and 85 tag. Yours may vary but the ride is now like a greyhound bus, and able to turn around in a small area. We are going to take it to Freighliner in Tucson to see if the air bags need further adjustment.

LD treated us like royalty.

The Camping World dealer in Dothan, AL had several Journey's Tour's and such come in for wind noise problems. So many in fact, that Winnebago sent them an electronic stethoscope and they found the noise actually comes from around the top of the entry door.
Simple solution was to place a stick-on type rubber weather stripping along the top of the door frame, and voila, no more noise. I know this because mine was corrected just this week. I'll get a picture up on this thread as soon as I wake up, and go to the barn.

Another question to you lucky owners: Do you like the footstools or do you find they are in the way? It seemed redundant to me that they give you freestanding footstools when the footstool slides out from under the couch... What am I missing?

Karen,

we were thinking along the same way they would be in the way, and when we ordered ours this past month, we did not order them. last year they included a nice folding coffee table which made sense. in fact that is what we already have with our current unit and will use it in the new QD when it arrives.

So far, I'm thinking I like them. Now it's a footstool. Flip over the top, now it's a coffee table. Lift up the top, now it's a place to store the extra bedding for the couch-turned-bed, or for the computer, etc. When traveling we wedge one between the dining chair and the slide out wall on one side and the other between the dining chair and the Euro chair on the other. Seems pretty secure.
I'm more prone to use them than the flip up food rest particularly if I am just sitting briefly.
Irene

Hello Trekkers, Gorgeous Coach... we're actually looking at purchasing the very same model 2013 Ellipse GD... did you Guys also look at the Winnebago Tour (exact same GD floorplan)?
Does anyone know if there are any differences between these two models, besides the Name on the Coach (Answers posted online indicate different amenities in other models, but this is the exact same interior!... is it just down to Paint color & interior trim options?)
How are you enjoying your Ellipse? Any issues so far?
With best regards, Denis & Judy

The differences are:

1. The taillights on the Ellipse are LED, not just regular bulbs

2. The stainless steel lower edge protectors along both sides are standard on Ellipse and an option on the tour. This item accounts for the difference in MSRP on the Ellipse vs. the Tour.

3. The interior fabrics and patterns are different on the two coaches

Another question to you lucky owners:

I notice that there is not a sunshade over the shower in the GD, our current shower has a shade and it keeps the coach much cooler as well as making the bedroom completely dark.

Do you have any heat/sun issues with the clear shower roof?

Thanks very much for your knowledge, and again congrats on your beautiful coach.
