Today’s great deal is an iconic 2011 Itasca Meridian 40U. I found this baby at a dealership right down the street from me and it’s going for almost $7,000 below low retail in the Nadaguides!
Everyone knows the name Winnebago, but what you may not know is that Itasca and Winnebago are exactly the same and manufactured on the same assembly line. They only differ in decor, interior and exterior colors and paint schemes. So all the same quality and stellar reputation that Winnebago is known for can be equally applied to Itasca.
With 90,000 miles on the odometer this 7 year old unit has been broken in and is seasoned and aesthetically comes across as practically a new unit.
Let’s take a look inside…
Your first impression of the unit is …spaciousness. With 4 slides outs it opens up wide on both sides giving that true homey feel.
Other great features include the leather upholstery, fireplace, bath and a half, queen sized bed, and porcelain toilet. The forest cherry hardwood in the interior is stunning. With the stacked washer/dryer combo, tons of drawers and large closet, if you are a full-timer you will be set with all the space and comfort of this unit.
Here are some live opinions recorded from a few folks’ impressions upon walking into this model.
This dealership is located in Winter Garden, FL and is an exclusive Newmar dealer, however they do take your trade in so they are able to offer a few varieties motorhomes of different lines and classes.
They got their start in 1985 as a small dealership with just six employees. Through stellar service and repeat customers they have grown enough to move to a 5 acre facility and have become a Newmar Authorized Factory Service Center. Folks come from all over the southeast to get their Newmars serviced according to factory specs.
