Does the tour, meridian or ellipse come with a side radiator?

We are looking at floor plans for our next coach. The ellipse really kind of has a lot of what we are looking for. We like a drivers side kitchen, king bed and bath and a half.
Having a base knowledge of the Monaco brand ( our present coach is a 2001 Windsor) I had never considered a Winnebago.
I am learning a bit as we go, like the tour is very similar to the ellipse.
But they have all had a rear radiator.
That is not a deal breaker for us if everything else is in place but curious if a side rad was ever used.

I am familiar with the problems with the slides and to look for the screws on the tracks.

Basically anything anyone can add to help the education process with the 40+ coaches, what's called what, would be a massive help.

Thank you in advance.
(This will not be one of those post where the op never returns!)

The 42HD, 42QD, and any other 42 are rear radiator.

Grand Tour 45RL is side radiator.

The Tour and Ellipse are the exact same thing, except for color.

They had side radiators in 2004. Not sure how many years had them but they went back to rear.

Thank you.
They really nailed a floor plan we like, that's for sure.

wish they would have had the Grand Tour 45RL a few years ago when we we're in the market. Looks like a fantastic floorplan and coach. Side rad and airlevelling great stuff.

Trap: I remember your wide ranging search of a few years ago.


I can only speak of my experience with rear radiators. Never had one iota of a problem. And we travel dirt/gravel roads a lot.


I learned, and this can be harped upon, to use Blue Beacon Truck Wash on an annual basis. Seems to do the trick!


Good to see a post from you again, ...Kerry

Not worried about the rear rad as that is what I now have, just thought that and the air levelling was a really nice upgrade. Glad to see they are moving forward. The Tour/Ellipse was our second choice when we we're looking. Nice to see Winnie is moving forward, looking forward to see what developes with the New Country Coach plant and lines. Thanks for welcome back Kerry
