2009 Itasca Horizon

The Horizon offers new features in 2009 that will definitely impress you. In the bedroom, we’ve added the new IdealRest body conforming memory foam mattress, while in the cockpit the one-of-a-kind GPgo. With more features than ever before, you’ll know your home in the 2009 Horizon.

The Itasca Horizon has a great foundation in the Maxum. The Maxum, a 34,320-lb. GVWR Freightliner XCL chassis, features an inverted rail design that creates a stronger chassis configuration, a lower center of gravity and incorporates an industry leading 60 degree wheel cut for improved handling and performance. The Maxum chassis also offers a powerful 8.9L 425 hp Cummins engine with six-speed transmission, independent front suspension and a rear radiator. The Horizon’s clean air diesel engine emits 1/60th of the soot compared to a diesel motor home built in 1988, and provides a 90 percent reduction in emissions.

The Maxum chassis also allows for pass-through storage accessibility and unparalleled storage space. In fact, the basement storage includes moveable panels so you can adjust the storage area to fit your exact needs and plastic storage containers that are perfect for holding items such as tools or water toys. A 60-inch wide basement slideout tray with built-in drawers is optional. The tray extends easily for easy access to your stored items. The exterior storage compartments doors have side hinges for easy operation and convenience. Full body paint with a new design and colors, as well as a new stainless steel valance panel accent trim make for a striking look to the 2009 Horizon. Also, check out the new exterior entertainment center that features a radio and optional TV.

With the Maxum chassis, driving the Horizon is a dream with new cab seats and the new GPgo! The Horizon features plush UltraLeather cab seats and the ultimate in GPS systems. GPgo is a Winnebago Industries® exclusive that offers the convenience of a powerful integrated Global Positioning System with the flexibility of a portable GPS. At the heart of the system is an Alpine® GPS unit that mounts securely into a docking station conveniently located in an overhead cabinet. A large 8-inch touch screen and remote control lets you view and control GPS functions from the driver or passenger seats. As an added bonus, you can also view the GPS output on the in-dash Sony® rearview monitor. Best of all, when you are ready for a day trip, simply take your Alpine GPS unit along in your tow vehicle. That’s not all either. We’ve also added a new Sirius satellite radio option. The “Plug and Play” system allows you to control the Sirius radio through your in-dash radio and then remove the receiver for use in your car.

The Horizon adds the new 40WD to its lineup in 2009. The 40WD is spacious, with a 24-inch wide passenger side slide that’s 15 foot 11 inches long and a 24-inch wide flat floor driver’s side slide measuring 13 feet 9 inches. The lounge area of the 40WD features dual sofas up front and a spacious galley featuring an innovative U-shaped dinette. A 37-inch high definition LCD TV sits mid-coach, while a 32-inch high definition LCD is found in the front overhead cabinets for the ultimate in entertainment! A roomy walk-through bathroom and side aisle access to a standard king-size bed are also found on the new 40WD. In the bedroom, you’ll also find a large wardrobe and a 26-inch LCD TV.

The popular 40TD returns in 2009. The 40TD features two large slideout rooms for added room when parked. The 30-inch wide flat floor driver’s side slide is 15 feet 11 inches long with the 24-inch wide passenger side flat floor slide measuring 21 feet 6 inches long. This innovative floorplan features an up front galley, with a dining table and chairs and entertainment center, including a 37-inch LCD high definition TV, mid-coach. The 40TD offers a Rest Easy theater style seating module that’s perfect when watching your favorite movies. The Rest Easy theater seating includes a center storage compartment, flip out cup holders and powered seat backs that recline separately at the touch of a button. And best of all Rest Easy theater seating quickly converts to dual twin beds. A new Sony® Home Theater Sound System is also featured that includes a DVD. Other floorplan highlights include a spacious bathroom with curved walls, two sizable wardrobes and rear 26-inch LCD TV.

Each floorplan offers tall 7 foot 2 ½ ceilings for a residential feel, as well as a fully equipped galley, large bathroom and a comfortable bedroom area. In the galley, key features include a new two-burner glass range top, high gloss Corian countertops with improved backsplashes, a stainless steel microwave/convection oven and our magnetic Titanium Touch stainless finish refrigerator doors for a polished look. In the living area, quality Villa furnishings are stylish and comfortable with Winnebago Industries’ own sofa, lounger and bed in one, the Rest Easy Multi-Position Lounge, also featured. The bathroom features a new Corian lavatory sink. In the bedroom, the new Ideal Rest body conforming memory foam mattress makes for a great night’s sleep and is standard on both the 40WD and 40TD. The mattress also features large radius corners for a high line look. The interior is nicely accented with new color choices for 2009, and the addition of new wood choices – Belmont Maple and “Coffee Glazed” Honey Cherry. The Vectra features solid wood cabinets for an impressive look, as well as plush UltraLeather furnishings. Our SmartSpace™ design philosophy is also found throughout the coach that focuses on making the most of the living space by maximizing functionality and focusing on user-friendly features.

Other notable highlights include an enhanced True Air Residential Central Air Conditioning System with increased cooling output for 2009, as well as the addition of a fourth 12-volt coach battery to increase electrical storage capacity.
