We absolutely fell in love with the floor plan of this coach at last month's Tampa Supershow. Now that you've had it for awhile what do you think of it? Pros & Cons are greatly appreciated!

Cons -

No pantry

Prefer U-shaped dinette




Pros -

Ours is All-Electric

No propane

55" HD-TV

Straight Ahead sight-line to TV

Stacked Washer/Dryer in bathroom
(Not in hall or Master Bedroom)

6" full-depth (20 or 22") drawers in

Master Bedroom

55" HD-TV :-)

4x4 Video Selector - any video (Antenna, Satellite, Blu-Ray, game Console) to any TV)

Full-Width Master Bedroom Closet

55" HD-TV. :-)

Huge, one-piece windshield/ picture winow

Large M/C SpeedCook Oven

The true Induction stove-top - water boiling in as little an 1 minute

Basement space

Double Side Sliding Shelf in Basement

Solid hardwood cabinetry throughout

AquaHot - "instant", forever hot water

BIG shower - DH is 6'2" 280

GREAT water pressure - yippee!!!

No fuses in House or Coach - All Breakers

Ceiling fan in MBr with "ooo-la-la" mood lighting

LOADS of overhead storage in living room and MBr

Door doesn't enter living room

Coach "Feels" like 4 different rooms not a "tube" with furniture in it

The copper drain on water tank - both of our Fleetwoods had PVC drains with plastic handles that broke off

It doesn't get blown around on highway. With tag axle it is a solid ride

60 degree cut on front wheels makes for tight turning radius - I could tell the difference.

Positive and negative battery hookups in battery compartment - great for Macerator hookup

Oh, oh, did I mention the 55" Mid Coach HD-TV ? LOL

More on the pros and cons.
As you may have guessed DH is a TVoholic and the best in house seating allows him a straight on view of the TV. So he dearly loves the Ellipse 42G. I also am thrilled, particularly with the clothes storage and the drawers which are full size. Those tiny drawers that held almost nothing in other rigs were a bane to me.
He didn't mention that the shower is quite large. bigger than the one in the QD. We are both "not so small" people, so that is really nice for us.
We use the front overhead compartments for our food and one has a slide out tray, and the refrigerator holds lots, so we are ok with the lack of panty.
The dishwasher actually is not used as a dishwasher but as storage racks for the dishes which is great because we don't worry about them clinking or shifting while traveling (also opens up the cabinets for food.) The only con to that is that the unit has to be "on" to open the door. I'm getting used to that, however. so it is not a biggie.
Overall we are delighted with the rig.

Thought of another con, which must not be a big con or I would have thought about it earlier.
You lose the storage space under the bed because the mechanism that elevates the head of the bed when the slides are closed is located there. This is compensated in my mind by the fact that it gives room for the full size dresser which is opposite it. This space was the least usable to me anyway because it was awkward for me to lift the bed. So the extra chairs which were under the bed in previous rigs are now in the basement. Since we don't use them often, I'm ok with that. The vacuum attachemnts also were under the bed in prior rigs, now are in a box which fits under the foot lip of the bed, actually easier for me to access.
