08 Ellipse 40TD

The wife and I are looking at the Ellipse. When shopping for insurance they ask if we have the 2 slide or 2 slide with Z package. I don't see any package designation on the window sticker. What's the differance?

Nice coach. We've been very happy with our 2007 Ellipse 40FD.

I suspect the insurance people are just reading documents and don't know either. Ask them what they are seeing. You may also call Winnebago.

"Z package" is where Winnebago bundles several popular options into one line item for the model, usually at a discount price over chosing each individually. Will vary model-to-model but often includes things like roof ladder, heated mirrors, a particular dining setup, outside entertainment center etc. Depends on which items are standard and which are options for each RV. Same as many car manufacturers do for various models.

For example, see the 2nd-to-last paragraph at bottom on this review...

You'd have to ask Winnebago or see the original price sheet to get the specifics.

I don't think a z package comes into the picture with an Ellipse, sounds like the ins co isn't familiar with motorhomes, go with a company that specializes in rv's

OK, Thanks for the replies. I was just curious about what the Z package was. I told them I didn't have it on this MH. I didn't want them adding to the cost for something I didn't have. It must come up on the big insurance company database in the sky when they look up how much to soak you.
