First Look: Inside the 2022 Winnebago EKKO

Since the Winnebago EKKO was first announced in November of 2020 we’ve all waited in anticipation to get inside this exciting new RV.

The EKKO is a first-of-its-kind motorhome.  It combines the size of a Class C coach with the maneuverability of an all-wheel-drive campervan.    It also features a robust solar powered system and many other off-the-grid features.  With four-season insulation it’s truly a different kind of RV.

We’ve seen photos and videos but most of those were of pre-release models.   We recently obtained a few photos that were released by Winnebago of the new EKKO.

While the first units are still on the assembly line we thought we’d share these photos as an early look of what to expect when they begin rolling out to customers.

Winnebago EKKO Top 7 Off-Grid Ready Features

The Winnebago EKKO, with the enhanced capability of AWD, creates not just a new model, but an entirely new type of RV. The EKKO is built on the Ford AWD Transit Chassis and includes enhanced safety features. This all-weather and all-season RV is built with adventure at its core and off-grid adventure on its mind. The AWD EKKO is a power-house for rugged adventures and allows you to go off-grid when adventure awaits.

EKKKO Off Grid

We have compiled our favorite Top 7 Off-Grid Ready Features found in the Winnebago EKKO.

  • Cummins Onan QG 2800i Gas Generator – The new Cummins Onan 2800i ultra low quiet and ultra fuel-efficient generator is compliant with National Park allowed noise levels. This generator is extremely fuel efficient. It is fuel injected and achieves this by operating at 2400 to 2900 rpms compared to 3600 in prior model levels. The new generator has a smaller footprint and a lighter weight at 113 pounds versus the previous models at 125 pounds. The new generator can power the high efficiency ducted air conditioning system in the EKKO at approximiately 0.2 gallons per hour or five hours on a single gallon. At night since air conditioners rarely operate in a 100% duty cycle the generator should power a typical energy efficient high efficiency ducted air conditioning system with less than two gallons of fuel for the entire night.
  • (1) 320-Amp Hour Lithium-Ion Battery with the option to add (1) additional 320-amp hour Battery – The standard Lithionics battery with a 320-amp hour battery provides 4133-watt hours of usable technology. This is paired with a Cummins Onan 2800i ultra low quiet ultra-fuel efficient generator and supplies fuel off of the top three quarters of the fuel tank. The combined dual batteries provide a total of 640-amp hours (8,266-watt hours) which then deletes the available generator and provides a sealed storage compartment where the generator would have otherwise been located.
  • (2) 170-Watt and (1) 115-watt solar panels (455 Total Watts) – Camp almost anywhere with the EKKO’s 455-watts of Solar allowing you to go off-grid for extended periods of time.
  • 2,000-watt Pure Sine Wave Inverter – This inverter powers the AC, microwave and all outlets in the Winnebago EKKO.
  • Dedicated Second Alternator to Charge Coach Batteries – The Balmar XT-Series under the hold alternator found in the Winnebago EKKO has a state-of-the-art design to generate exceptional output in the smallest possible area. It provides power of 170 amps and charges the lithium coach batteries at a peak rate of 2,000-watts.  While stationary the alternator, at idle, provides 100-125 amps of power to charge up to 1,700-watts delivering incredible charging power in a compact, RV friendly package. It includes dual fan cooling and a high airflow frame and will recharge the Lithium Batteries in under 2 hours.
  • Large Tank Capacities – Large Tank Capacities allow extended off-grid usage.
    1. 50 gal. Freshwater
    2. 51 gal. Gray
    3. 40 lbs. LP
    4. 31 gal. Fuel
  • Cassette Toilet – Cassette toilets offer a portable tank that you can remove from your EKKO. It is the size of a small suitcase and comes with rollers. This portable black tank can be emptied virtually anywhere—public restrooms, dump stations, etc. so you don’t need to rely on a dump station as you would with a black tank.

Vista Smartspace Design

SMARTSPACE DESIGN Winnebago’s SmartSpace™ design approach makes the most efficient use of the space in each coach.

The Winnebago Vista and Sunstar’s BenchMark Dinette with Hi-Lo Table adjusts to your desired height and includes tabletop storage.

Winnebago Adventurer Highlights

RV’ing is all about the adventure! That’s where it all began when Winnebago built the flagship Class A motorhome, the Adventurer. The Winnebago Adventurer is available is five spacious family friendly floorplans.

Why do people buy a motorhome? They want the RV experience and to create lasting family memories. This is why Motorhome quality is so important. Winnebago strives to keep you on the road and away from the service center. When making a decision on which motorhome to call your own, consider these important features found in the Winnebago Adventurer.

Winnebago Adventurer

QUALITY

It goes without saying, that when you spend this much money on anything, there is a certain level of quality that you expect in return. Winnebago is constantly striving to improve the quality of their motorhomes with a priority of building the best motorhomes on the market so you can happily and stress-free enjoy the RV lifestyle.

SuperStructure 

The Adventurer is built to Winnebago’s® legendary SuperStructure® construction design. This process was developed by Winnebago Industries and has been refined over more than 50 years of building some of the strongest, most durable coaches in the industry. The Winnebago Adventurer cab seats, windshield, cabinets and appliances are all mounted into the steel SuperStructure.

E-Coating

At Winnebago, 100% of the steel in their motorhomes is protected from rust and corrosion. Every steel component is either galvanized or goes through the E-Coating process.

Learn more about Winnebago’s propriety E-Coat process HERE.

Manufacturing Parts

Some of these features include: electronic stability control, a ground fault interrupter, a high-mount brake lamp and child seat tether anchors in the forward facing dinette (27N, 29B, 35F and 36Z.)

CONVENIENCE

Who doesn’t like convenience in their life? Winnebago is committed to listening to customers and implementing provided suggestions into Winnebago motorhomes. This is where many of the Winnebago Adventure’s convenience features were born.

Powerline Management System

The Winnebago Adventurer’s Powerline Energy Management System allows you to select what kind of power source you are connected to (20amp, 30 amp, etc.). For example, if you are connected to a lower amperage circuity, running the AC, and want to turn the microwave on, the Powerline Management System will automatically turn the compressor off and turn it back on when the microwave stops. This prevents blowing breakers at the power source.

Furniture

Ultrafabrics is the first polyurethane manufacturer to tout GREENGUARD certification, meeting stringent VOC emission standards for the creation of healthier air quality. Ultrafabrics provide exceptional hydrolysis performance for optimal durability and stain protection and are easy to care for. Ultrafabrics boast low VOC emissions for healthier indoor air quality and are skin friendly and allergen free.

Winnebago’s Proprietary E-Coat Process

Winnebago EKKO Ford Transit Chassis Safety Features

Combining the efficiency of a camper van and the capacity of a Class C coach, the EKKO takes the phrase “big things in small packages” to a whole new level. Blending the off-road rugged nomadic nature of van life with the storage and livability of traditional touring class motor homes, the all -new, all-season Winnebago EKKO provides unmatched off-grid and all-season capabilities.  Its standard all-wheel-drive capability goes where other motorhomes can’t, yet with its van size, is easy to drive and easy to park.

The EKKO foundation begins with the fuel efficient, safety enhanced Ford Transit chassis. This chassis provides 3.5L direct fuel injection, a dual turbocharged Ford EcoBoost V6 engine, 400 lb ft of torque or power and 310 hp of acceleration. The Ford Transit Chassis includes a 10-speed automatic Selectshift transmission with overdrive and grade braking. The EKKO’s standard on-demand AWD engages when it detects slippage and sends torque or power the wheels that need them and doesn’t when it’s not needed to improve fuel economy.  The EKKO includes a second under-the-hood alternator to recharge the lithium battery/batteries in under 2 hours. The EKKO has independent front suspension and electric power assisted steering. The EKKO has Up to 1,500 lb occupant and cargo carrying capacity.

Winnebago EKKO Chassis Safety

The Winnebago EKKO Ford Chassis Includes the following Safety Enhancements:

  1. Blind Spot Alert – This feature can help detect and alert you to vehicles in your blind spot and can detect traffic behind you when you’re slowly backing out of a parking spot or driveway.
  2. Lane Keep Assist – Lane Keep Assist helps you by scanning the lane markings ahead on both sides of your vehicle and alerts you when you cross over a marking.
  3. Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning – This system uses sensors in the front of your RV to detect slower vehicles traveling in the same direction, and warns you if you are rapidly approaching. When traffic ahead slows down, you automatically do too. When traffic picks back up, you can resume your preset speed and distance.
  4. Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) – The feature uses camera technology to detect a potential collision with a vehicle or pedestrian directly in front of you during day or nighttime driving. If an impact becomes imminent and you do not take corrective action, the brakes apply automatically. This system can help reduce the severity of, and in some cases can eliminate, a frontal collision.
  5. Post-Collision Braking – This technology moderately applies the brakes after a crash so the RV stops rolling and avoids a potential second accident.
  6. AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control (RSC) – This is Ford’s premium electronic stability system that improves vehicle control on all driving surfaces, including snow, ice, gravel, rain-covered roads, and dry pavement.  This system monitors the yaw and roll rates, helping you maintain control whenever it detects wheel slip, understeer, oversteer or roll motion.
  7. Automatic Rain Sensing Wipers – These wipers spring into action when they detect moisture on your windshield and then adjust their speed to deal with whatever the weather throws at you.
  8. Side Wind Stabilization – This system works by carefully applying the brakes on one side of the RV to reduce the effect of a side wind gust on the RV’s path.
  9. Hill Side Assist – This system holds your EKKO stationary for two seconds using brake pressure, giving you more time to find the right amount of revs and clutch to pull away, and once you apply pressure to the accelerator pedal, the brakes will automatically disengage.
  10. Auto High-Beam Headlights – This driver-activated system scans the road at speeds above 25 miles per hour. When you are on a very dark road with no traffic, the high beams come on. However, when a vehicle with its headlamps on is approaching up to 2,000 feet or traveling ahead of you with taillamps visible up to 500 feet, the system will dim to low beams to reduce glare and avoid hindering the other motorist.
  11. Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) – This System will alert you if any tire on your EKKO is underinflated.
  12. Dual Front and Safety Canopy Side Curtain Airbags – In addition to the driver and passenger airbags the EKKO includes side-curtain airbags that deploy downward and outward toward the side-window openings to protect the heads of front passengers. Roll-fold technology helps the airbag slide between the glass and occupant as the airbag inflates.
  13. SecuriLock Anti-Theft System with Engine Immobilizer – This system is designed to prevent the engine from starting unless the correct coded key is used. The electronically encoded ignition key activates a specially designed transponder located inside your EKKO. The system disarms whenever the correct key is inserted into the ignition and automatically rearms when it’s removed.

The Winnebago EKKO Class C gas motorhome is ready for all-weather and all-roads with its insulated water service center, extensive all-season insulation, dual-pane acrylic windows, heated exterior storage, and Ford AWD Transit chassis. You can camp almost anywhere in the EKKO. Go off-grid with its 320-amp-hour Lithium Ion battery (with the option of adding an additional 320-amp-hour Lithium Ion battery), a second alternator dedicated to charging the battery, and three solar panels.

The EKKO is not only a power house for rugged adventures, but it is also a comfortable living environment. The full galley will have you cooking up a delicious meal in no time, and the WinnSleep system can turn two twin beds into one queen bed so that you can adjust your sleeping space as needed. You can also add the optional pop-top sleeping area with FROLI sleep system if you want to create even more sleeping space. Each model also has a bathroom for added convenience which means that there is nothing stopping you from packing up and heading out whenever the mood strikes.

Once you have your Winnebago EKKO, it’s time to get ready to pack for your first trip. Before you do so, it is important to know the following weight ratings to ensure you do not “overfill” your new RV.

Winnebago EKKO OCCC

Unloaded Vehicle Weight Rating – This the weight of the Winnebago EKKO with only a full tank of fuel. This rating may vary based on optional content. It will be approximately 9,500 lbs.

Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity (OCCC) -This is the total weight of all cargo which includes all of your gear, you, and the freshwater tanks full. This is approximately 1,500 lbs on the Winnebago EKKO and will vary by optional content.

The unloaded vehicle weight rating + the occupant and cargo carrying capacity = the EKKOs’ gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). 11,000 lbs. 

Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) – This is the absolute maximum weight of the  Winnebago EKKO + any trailer or vehicle towed behind it. GCWR is the unloaded vehicle weight rating + the occupant and cargo carrying capacity+ any towed vehicles (GVWR + any towed vehicles. )15,000 lbs.

Towing Capabilities – The EKKO has a factory installed 5,000 lb. tow package. However, keep in mind if your RV is fully loaded, using all of your OCCC, up to a full GVWR of 11,000 lbs. that you are still limited to the GCWR of 15,000 lbs. So, your trailer or towed vehicle should not exceed 4,000 lbs. (GCWR 15,000 – GVWR 11,000.)  

Some additional weights you may see if you were to weigh your EKKO are the gross axle weight rating for the front axle and the rear axle which are 4,630 lbs. and 7,275 lbs. respectively.

With the efficiency of a camper van (15-17 MPG highway), the added capacity of a Class C coach, and the enhanced capability of AWD, the EKKO Class C gas motorhome from Winnebago is going to change the way you travel!
