Perfect for Entertaining
Introducing the Ellipse Ultra®: the ultimate luxury diesel-pusher for those who value elegance and integrity in everything. Its exquisite beauty begins with the revolutionary Freightliner® Maxum Chassis® tag-axle chassis with lowered-rail construction, ensuring unequaled ride, performance, and storage capacity. Its proven 450-hp Cummins® turbo-charged diesel engine delivers all the power you desire, which you will sense from the Villa luxury six-way adjustable cab seats in Ultraleather™ with power footrest, heat and massage, and power lumbar support. Upscale luxurious amenities unique to the Ellipse Ultra 42QL include polished porcelain tiles, a large skylight with powered shade, Villa furniture, keyless entry, and six full-body paint packages. Multiplex switch panels located throughout the all-electric coach allow you to control exterior and interior lights, hydraulic jacks, MCD power shades, slideout rooms, and more, while the Carefree® Paramount awnings extend from the top of the RV to three easy positions: slideout, slideout and window, and full-patio extension. Unforgettable memories are guaranteed with additional features including LED lighting, an electric fireplace, and the exterior entertainment center featuring an HDTV with sound bar and subwoofer. And now you can entertain and enjoy the outdoors like never before with the Tailgate Package featuring a single-burner induction range top, steel counter, lockable refrigerator/freezer, storage area, and cold water access. The Ellipse Ultra is the ultimate choice for those seeking the epitome of quality construction and luxurious living.
Raise and lower the hydraulic jacks from any of three convenient locations. Do the job from the driver’s seat or step outside and use the controls at either the entrance door or service center to monitor the jacks as you lower them. No hassle. No guesswork. Just a level coach at your convenience.
Enjoy advanced zone heating and hot water on demand from the Aqua-Hot system. A series of tubes coiled around a central boiler distributes heat to small heat exchangers throughout the motorhome. This precision system delivers:
- Even heating from floor to ceiling and throughout the coach
- Zone control for up to five distinct heat zones
- Instant hot water for showers, laundry, and dishes
- Fume-free performance
By using engine heat, AC power, Diesel, or LP to fuel a central boiler, Aqua-Hot keeps you comfortable anytime, anywhere.
The BIG Shower from Winnebago Industries lives up to its name. In fact, it might be an understatement. The BIG Shower dwarfs most traditional RV showers with a wide entrance and plenty of elbow room. Enjoy a refreshing rinse in the BIG Shower and you will never look at RV showers the same way again.
The contoured Euro recliner features a soft Ultraleather™ covering that looks like leather and feels even softer. A built-in footrest kicks out as you recline, providing an elegant and comfortable spot to read a book or watch TV.
It may look like a typical sofa when you are driving down the road, but when the slideout expands, so does the extendable sectional sofa. In just a few quick steps, this exclusive Winnebago Industries sofa increases your seating capacity by 50%, allowing the whole family to gather around the television or enjoy some pleasant conversation.
Getting a good night’s sleep shouldn’t be a challenge. The Ideal Rest® Natural Reserve digital comfort control mattress makes it easier and more comfortable than ever. Ideal Rest Natural Reserve offers fifty unique set points so you can customize firmness and support to fit your personal preference, from extra firm to feather soft.
Best of all, it offers comfort-enhancing features you simply won’t find in any other RV mattress:
- A cotton and bamboo fiber cover panel that combines the natural comfort and wicking benefits of cotton with inherently mildew proof bamboo fibers to create an incredibly comfortable and hygienic sleep surface. As an added benefit, both materials are renewable, sustainable, and earth-friendly.
- A natural wool covered 2-in-1 duo firmness reversible insert with naturally antimicrobial latex on one side and body temperature activated Memory-Cell® on the other, allowing you to choose your perfect comfort level. With the Ideal Rest Natural Reserve digital comfort control mattress, there is no need to compromise; you can adjust your individual firmness level with digital precision and slumber in superior comfort.
The Infotainment Center with Rand McNally RV GPS has it all: touch screen color monitor with split screen function, Rand McNally RV GPS safe & easy routing, amenities & tools, trips & content, turn-by-turn voice guidance, AM/FM radio with CD/DVD player, handheld remote, SiriusXM™ (subscription not included), compass, outside temperature, iPod®/iPhone® audio integration, Bluetooth™, and so much more.
The perfect diesel-pusher experience begins with a chassis designed like no other. Winnebago Industries engineers worked closely with Freightliner® — the proven leader in diesel motorhome chassis — to create the Maxum Chassis®: a stronger, better performing chassis with a lower center of gravity for unsurpassed ride and handling. To top it off, the Maxum Chassis offers up to 246 cubic feet of exterior storage so you can load up with everything you need for weeks on the road. The secret is its revolutionary lowered-rail design combined with our exclusive SuperStructure® construction and SmartSpace® philosophy that increases the cross-coach storage height for the most efficient use of space.
The smooth-operating MCD solar/blackout roller shades set the ideal atmosphere in your coach, day or night. Besides providing ideal light and privacy, MCD solar/blackout roller shades offer upscale looks and performance and are easier to operate and clean than traditional pleated shades.
The OnePlace® systems center allows you to monitor and control key systems from one convenient location. No more walking back and forth between the thermostat and generator, it’s all in one spot. The OnePlace panel features a streamlined appearance with a digital panel that is easy to read and operate. Stop the runaround with the OnePlace systems center.
Another smart solution: our PowerLine Energy Management System. When your air conditioner is running, your spouse is using the microwave, and your granddaughter turns on the hair dryer, this will not trigger a system overload. PowerLine temporarily turns off one or more of your vehicle’s “postponable” appliances—and automatically returns power once the load returns to normal.
Our QuickConnect® coupling valve ensures quick, clean sewer hookups every time. There’s even a holster in the service compartment for easy storage.
Say good–bye to wrestling power cords and water hoses through small holes. The QuickPort® service connection hatch makes hookups a snap—and helps keep your service area clean and tidy. It even allows the bay door to close with hookups connected.
The SmartSpace design philosophy encourages the use of innovative features to make the most efficient use of the available space in each coach. This philosophy has led to the creation of features such as the BenchMark® full comfort dinette that has hidden storage compartments below the flip-up seats, full-extension drawer slides, and an extendable sectional sofa found in several of our coaches. From the Rest Easy multi-position lounge to the unique pull-out pantries, you’ll find a variety of SmartSpace features across our entire lineup of motorhomes.
Unlike some manufacturers, we use steel, not wood, to create a strong, durable cab substructure. We mount our windshields securely in steel with nonhardening sealants, just like an automobile. By using an advanced laser alignment system when mounting the cab to the chassis, we ensure a sturdy, square foundation.
Welcome to TrueAir Maximum Comfort A/C, a new evolution in RV air conditioning where comfort, efficiency, and precision control come together to provide you with an exceptional travel experience.
TrueAir has set the standard in RV air conditioning systems for years. Now we’ve raised the bar again with an improved, roof-mounted A/C distribution system: TrueAir Maximum Comfort A/C. It’s a new and better generation of RV air conditioning technology, replacing our TrueAir Residential Central A/C.
Why change? The advent of new diesel emission standards requires chassis components to be placed in the basement space previously used for our TrueAir compressor package and the future availability of that cooling unit package is in question due to new refrigerant regulations that require larger re-designed compressors (see chassis photo below).
Form Meets Function and the Result is Superior Air Flow
Are all ducts created equal? Not at all. With the exclusive TrueAir Maximum Comfort A/C, we employ an advanced ductwork design that ensures consistent, precision airflow throughout the coach. The ductwork is formed rather than routed and possesses a unique D-shape with radiused edges that reduce drag and turbulence as conditioned air travels along the length of the coach (see ductwork graphic below). And with multiple units all operating through a single ducting system, the result is optimal system performance that requires less energy.
Rooftops and Venting Matter, Too
To further increase its effectiveness, the rooftop construction employs a custom formed foam core specifically designed for this application — thicker yet lighter weight, stronger with tighter tolerances, and with a higher R-Value — all which translate into superior efficiency and temperature control. Top all this technology with a multitude of precision control vents and you will be assured a perfectly controlled interior climate.
Cool When and Where You Need it with Dual-Zone Control
Ready for bedtime while your traveling partner is going to stay up and enjoy a movie in the living area? With the TrueAir Maximum Comfort A/C’s dual-zone climate control, you can easily navigate temperature control settings from a single precision thermostat. On those balmy summer evenings, you can turn off the rear A/C unit for quieter sleep environment while still enjoying the benefit of a cool interior climate thanks to the full-length ducting. Dual-zone control ensures optimal environmental control and the true residential comfort you’ve come to expect with all Winnebago Industries’ products.
Harnessing the Best in Cooling Technology
Low-profile high-efficiency Polar Mach compressors incorporate improved heating and ventilation system technology to generate 13,500 BTU performance using less space and energy than previous 12,000 BTU compressors. The result is better cooling with less energy.
A Roof-Mounted System without the Challenges of Rooftop Condensation
Where typical RV rooftop air conditioning units are infamous for the trail they leave behind — condensation dripping down the coach and sidewall streaking that is — TrueAir Maximum Comfort A/C actually pumps rooftop condensation directly to the ground.
For Those Chilly Summer Mornings
TrueAir Maximum Comfort A/C incorporates an advanced heat pump system that can provide supplemental heat as needed without running the furnace, reducing LP usage.
TrueAir Maximum Comfort A/C roof-mounted cooling units are secured with spring compression fasteners. This spring-tensioned mounting technology provides superior quality mounting and security ensuring tight seal compression for the long haul.
Easy Maintenance Frees You to Enjoy Your Travels
With easy access from within the coach, your filters can be quickly removed and washed or replaced.
Mirus™ detector cell technology ensures accurate freshwater and wastewater tank level readings. Mirus detector cells produce a micro-electrical field that detects liquid levels from outside the tank. No more probes to corrode or clog. Just true, accurate readings time after time.
Winnebago Industries cab seats, sofas, loungers, and more can be covered in premium, soft Ultraleather™ fabric. Ultraleather gives you the softness, comfort, and luxury that is more durable than leather and incredibly easy to clean. Made with proprietary Takumi™ technology that combines four material layers including PVC-free polycarbonates, it has been tested and proven to surpass competitive fabrics for integrity and durability. Plus, Ultraleather offers superior thermal comfort—creating a comfortable, neutral body temperature regardless of the setting. With Ultraleather, you can stay pleasantly protected from the bumps, spills, and scrapes of life on the road.
Valspar Resistovar Conversion Varnish is specifically formulated to provide an exceptional finish that includes enhanced UV protection and superior scratch, chemical, and moisture resistance. Valspar’s Resistovar Conversion Varnish surpasses all KCMA performance standards.
