We are looking at a 2011 Ellipse 42QD to replace our 2014 Bounder 35K. It is time for us to go back to a diesel. Need extra space when we go full time in a couple years. Any good or bad comments regarding this unit?
Welcome to the forum! We own a '15 and have loved the layout, tag axle stability, and carrying capacity. As with all coaches - we've had our fair share of problems that we've fixed ourselves or WBGO has stepped up.
Your coach should pre-date the Schwintek slide mechanism issues so I'd be looking to replace batteries and tires if not already done.
There's a fairly large group of QD owners that post over on IRV2 - a new post there should get you more responses. Questions welcomed...

We test drove that same model but didn’t care for the lack of interior storage but liked the 450 hp motor and under storage but finally decided to purchase a used 2014 Journey tag that has more under and above storage for our needs. It came with the 400 hp engine.
Thank you for all of your inputs. Floor plan and storage are definitely two key driving forces in model choices. I am a little uncertain about the DEF, but I think it is because of lack of knowledge. Looks like we are taking the plunge so he we come to the Winnebago family!
