Winnebago Unveils 2012 Itasca Ellipse 42JD

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

Winnebago Industries Inc. has introduced the 2012 Itasca Ellipse 42JD.


“Our top-of-the-line Itasca Ellipse adds another stunning floorplan to its lineup for 2012 — the 42JD,” said Roger Martin, Winnebago vice president of sales and marketing. “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 coaches. Or, you can go outside and fully appreciate the exterior beauty of this coach, with its powerful Maxum chassis that offers unsurpassed drivability and storage. The Ellipse is the total package in 2012.”


Featuring three slideouts, with a full wall slide on the street side, the Ellipse 42JD features 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 extendable dining table and 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 masterbath 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 AM/FM/CD/DVD player, iPod, and MP3 input and built-in alarm clock.


The Itasca Ellipse offers two additional floorplans in its 2012 lineup:

  • The industry’s hottest selling diesel floorplan in 2011, the triple slide 42QD features Winnebago Industries’ own extendible sectional sofa with a 40-inch LCD 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.
  • The 42AD features four slideouts, especially in the mid-coach lounge area with an extendible sectional sofa and Rest Easy Multi-Position Lounge both featured. The fully equipped kitchen is in the front of the coach, with a bedroom in the rear that features both a wardrobe and chest of drawers.
