Winnebago Minnie Winnie and Spirit

Below you will find key features of the Winnebago Minnie Winnie and Winnebago Spirit models.

Minnie Winnie and Spirit Lounge

The large U-shaped dinette (N/A 25B) makes the Minnie Winnie and Spirit lounge meeting-place central for planning or unwinding after the day’s activities. The large-tinted windows provide expansive views while parked or on the road, and the blackout roller shades ensure privacy when down. The 32″ HDTV with DVD player is standard, as is the amplified digital HDTV antenna, and available theater seating (26T, 31H, 31K) with individually operated recliners and footrests make movie nights an extra special treat. The TrueComfort+™ sofa/bed, available on the 31K, extends to a full double bed (58″ X 74″) and offers a comfortable night’s rest.

The spacious bath includes a shower with flexible showerhead, lavatory and medicine cabinets, skylight, powered roof vent, robe hook(s) and towel bar(s).

Minnie Winnie and Spirit Cab

The Minnie Winnie and Spirit cab provides a commanding view of the road, and the new 7.3L Ford V-8 — dishing out an impressive 350 horsepower and 468 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,900 rpm — lets you navigate hills with ease. Standard safety features include Electronic Stability Control, which can automatically apply selective braking to prevent the vehicle from sliding sideways or skidding; Traction Control, to keep wheels from excessively spinning and to help maintain traction; and Hill Start Assist, which helps keep you from rolling backward while you transition from brake to accelerator. Winnebago is the only conventional Class C manufacturer to offer the NEW Smart Driver-Assist Technology Package. The Smart Driver-Assist Technology Package adds numerous additional features, including Automatic Emergency Braking, which provides a visual warning, audible alert and display message when the vehicle detects a potential collision, and brake assist if corrective action is not taken; Lane Departure Warning; and Adaptive Cruise Control which employs both radar and camera technology to automatically adjust cruising speed according to traffic.

Top Ten Features in the Winnebago Minnie Winnie and Spirit

Winnebago Class C Motorhome Lineup

Product Highlight: Winnebago Compact Class C Coaches

Finding the right RV for your needs is about finding the perfect balance.  How many people do you travel with?  How much time will you spend in your RV?  Do you have pets that ride along?  Are there space constraints where you park?  Is gas mileage a big consideration?  How comfortable are you driving larger vehicles?

Winnebago Class C Motorhomes are a perfect fit for many people who are looking for the right balance of size, comfort, maneuverability and fuel economy.  Many of our guests find them easy to drive and maneuver thanks to their compact size.  Class C motorhomes provide much more interior space than Class B camper vans.  They give you the space you need and have separate cooking, eating, dining and sleeping areas.  There is also more storage for all the things you like to take with you.

Class C motorhomes also give you more options if you like to take kids, grandchildren or others along for the ride.

The Winnebago Class C lineup includes four motorhomes that can be considered compact.  They comfortably sleep anywhere between two to five people.   Those models include the Winnebago EKKO, the View/Navion Series and the Minnie Winnie/Spirit Series.   There are larger floorplans of the Minnie Winnie and Spirit but for this comparison we will focus on the compact 22-foot models.

Winnebago EKKO

EKKKO Off Grid

The all-new Winnebago EKKO combines the efficiency of a camper van, the added capacity of a Class C coach, and the enhanced capability of AWD to create not just a new model, but an entirely new type of RV.  These gas-powered motorhomes are larger than a Class B camper vans measuring 23′ 2″ in length. The EKKO also has more cargo capacity with a large gear garage.  A robust 455 watt lithium solar power system comes standard if  camping off-grid is your thing.   The EKKO is also insulated for all-season use in any climate.

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.

Top ten questions on the Winnebago Minnie Winnie and Spirit from Lichtsinn RV LIVE

Are you considering purchasing a new or used Winnebago Minnie Winnie or Winnebago Spirit?   If so, we’ve gathered some of the top questions from a recent Lichtsinn RV LIVE presentation.

Winnebago Minnie Winnie Suede 31K-20

What is the difference between a Winnebago Minnie Winnie and Sprit?

The Winnebago Minnie Winnie and the Spirit are identical.  Most dealerships carrying these brands within North America offer either the Minnie Winnie or the Spirit.  Lichtsinn RV is a full line dealership so we can provide you with either model.   The two coaches are made on the same line by the same people here in Forest City, Iowa.  They’re identical in features, quality, content, price and colors.  The only difference between the two models is going to be the logo that you see on the side. The Spirit is a legacy name from When Winnebago used to have an Itasca line of RVs.

 

How many people can comfortably sleep in the Minnie Winnie and Spirit?

Ideal for families of all shapes and sizes the Winnebago Minnie Winnie and Sprit floorplans offer flexible sleeping for five to eight people. Each of the Minnie Winnie’s six available floorplans include a rear bedroom, cabover bunk, and sofa/bed (n/a 22M & 22R.)

What chassis are the Minnie Winnie and Spirit built on?  What safety features do they have?

The Winnebago Minnie Winnie and Spirit are built on the new Ford V8 chassis which includes the new Ford safety features. The 22M and 22R floorplans are built on the Ford E350 chassis with the option of upgrading to the E450 chassis. The 25B, 26T, 31H and 31K floorplans are built on the E450 chassis.  The new Ford chassis safety features include: adaptive cruise control, active distance alert, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, driver alert, automatic emergency braking, post impact braking, electronic stability control, traction control, hill start assist and a tire pressure monitoring system.

 

Do the Winnebago Minnie Winne and Spirit have an e-coated chassis?

Ford e-coats each chassis before sending them to the Winnebago factory.  Then Winnebago improves on corrosion-resistant treatment that with their state-of-the-art 14-stage coating process in their new e-coat facility.

 

Can you tow with the Minnie Winnie and Spirit?

All of the Minnie Winnie and Spirit models have a 7500lb factory installed tow package.   This provides ample towing capacity to tow most vehicles or trailers.

Are there differences between the 2021 and 2022 models?

There are no model year changes between the 2021 and 2022 models of the Winnebago Minnie Winnie and the Spirit.

 

What kind of leveling jacks are available on the Minnie Winnie and Spirit?

Hydraulic leveling jacks are an available option for the 26T, 31H and 31K floorplans.  Electric stabilizing jacks are an available option on the 22M, 22R and 25B.

 

Will the onboard generator have enough power to the air conditioner and other appliances inside the motorhome?

Each floorplan in the Winnebago Minnie Winnie and Spirit has power to spare with the included 4,000-watt Cummins Onan Microquiet Generator and second coach battery and 1,000-watt inverter.  That’s enough on-board power to run everything inside the RV.

What’s the difference between US and Canadian models? 

The Canadian models have been tested as compliant to Canadian Housing Standards.  They also feature a metric instrument cluster.

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.

Winnebago EKKO Ford Transit Chassis Safety Features

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!
