Winnebago’s E-Coat Process

Winnebago’s electrocoating (E-Coat) process cycles parts and assemblies through a 10-stage, full-immersion system. The E-Coat system is similar to that used by automotive companies and helps protect against corrosion.

This system is unique to Winnebago and keeps us ‘best in class’ among motorhome manufacturers. Extensive amounts of steel are used in Winnebago motorhomes for strength and durability and it is vitally important to protect the steel through the e-coat process to help reduce corrosion. We take pride in going above and beyond to deliver a true quality advantage that helps extend the life of our motorhomes. No one else in the industry has this capability.

The e-coat system processes piece parts and assemblies through a 10-stage, full-immersion electro-coating system capable of accepting loads 5′ wide x 16′ long x 6′ high. The first seven stages are used for pretreatment and involve cleaning, treating with a nano-ceramic conversion coating and deionized water rinse for good conductivity. The final three stages are used for the e-coat and rinse cycles. Electro-deposition is accomplished by charging the components with electricity, and then paint film is bonded to the body to a desired thickness.

The Winnebago E-Coat Process, one more way we strive to build the best RV in the market!

Is your Winnebago Built to Last? The Drop Test

What Makes Winnebago’s SuperStructure So Super?

From Winnebago’s smallest Class C coach to the largest diesel-pusher, coaches are built to Winnebago’s legendary SuperStructure construction design. But what about the construction is so super?

What Makes Winnebago's SuperStructure So Super

Interlocking Joints – Winnebago uses a specially designed interlocking joint to connect the floor, sidewalls, and roof to evenly distribute the weight, so our “empty shell” is so strong it doesn’t need internal reinforcement. Many competitors rely on simply screwing and gluing their sidewalls and roof together. But with all the weight borne only by those screws, the resulting structure is so weak it requires interior walls and cabinets for stability.

Laser-Cut Tubing – Precision laser cutters create precise joints in structural steel that are stronger and require less welding. While some manufacturers use less-accurate manual saws or cut-off saws. Winnebago’s precision laser cutter can also cut shapes into a tube, and even etches the length of each part directly onto the tube.

Thermo-Panel Sidewalls – By layering fiberglass and high-density block foam insulation with welded aluminum support structures, we create some of the industry’s strongest, most durable and lightweight sidewalls.

Embedded Steel – Metal substructures embedded into the sidewall provide solid attachments points to keep cabinets and appliances mounted securely in place. Other manufacturers mount cabinets and appliances to cheap pine wood boards placed inside the sidewalls, or even screw their appliances directly to the sidewall.

E-Coating – To help minimize corrosion, metal parts and components can feature one of several protective coating processes. Critical steel structural components are processed through a multi‑stage full immersion electro-­coating (e-coating) system. E-coating is also used by leading automotive companies to protect their vehicles from corrosion.

The process involves charging each part with an electrical charge which attracts the protective coating, causing it to be “plated” onto the part. The result is a uniform thickness of the protective coating. Components like screen doors are painted with a powder-coating process. A positive electric charge is applied to the part, which attracts the negatively charged powder particles. The coating is then baked on in heat chambers for an attractive, extremely durable finish. Many competitors apply a simple spray-on paint that doesn’t reach or protect nooks and crannies.

Winnebago’s legendary SuperStructure construction design is a process that has been developed and refined over more than 60 years of building some of the strongest, most durable coaches in the industry.
