The Gillette gathering is a culmination of FMCA’s 50th birthday celebration.

Hundreds of motorhomes are on hand for the event where the Itasca Solei made its debut.

The all-new, attractively priced Solei is built on a Freightliner XCS straight-rail chassis featuring a 340 hp Cummins diesel engine coupled with a six-speed Allison transmission, according to a news release.

Interior amenities include polished Corian galley countertops, coffee-glazed cabinetry, LED ceiling lights, and upscale entertainment features. Smart Storage, an integral part of both the 34T and 38R floor plans, also offers plenty of room for storing items.

“This 34-foot Solei is smaller in length than the unit I am in now, but actually has more usable storage and floor plan space,” said John Dogger of Hinkley, Ohio, during the rally.

“It’s also less than 12 feet tall, so I could fit it in my garage. I love the 340hp Cummins diesel engine on such a well-priced motorhome.

“I’ve owned motorhomes for 25 years and have always known Winnebago to be the best in the market, but I’ve never owned one before now. That may change soon. The Solei is a home run, an absolute home run.”
