Winnebago, one of the largest RV manufacturers, has announced its next generation of products. Notable among the new model RVs is the compact EKKO Class C motorhome. Here, from a lightly edited news release (to remove gushy superlatives), is the basic information:
The news release reads:
The EKKO is a compact Class C motorhome designed for the modern-day adventurer with large holding tanks, solar panels, and optional lithium batteries to help unlock the power of off-grid camping.
“The EKKO delivers an intentional off-road look with clean, sharp-angled edges and minimal exterior graphics,” said Brian Hazelton, Senior Vice President, Winnebago-brand RVs. “Built on the all-wheel drive Ford Transit chassis, this new model has the capability to take you to places previously unthinkable for a Class C.”
The EKKO is available in two different floor plans (22A, 24C). Additional off-grid features include:
• Unparalleled storage for a coach of its size – most notably a heated rear gear garage with three access points to store outdoor gear, equipment and accessories.
• An optional pop-top feature (22A) that provides additional sleeping for guests that can comfortably sleep two adults.
• All-season insulation providing the opportunity to extend the camping season.
Winnebago motorhomes, travel trailers and fifth wheel products are manufactured at dedicated facilities in Iowa and Indiana. The leading Winnebago brand of products is the most recognizable name in the industry. Winnebago is a part of Winnebago Industries, Inc (NYSE: WGO), a leading U.S. manufacturer of outdoor lifestyle products under the Winnebago, Grand Design, Newmar, and Chris-Craft brands, which are used primarily in leisure travel and outdoor recreation activities.
