Winnebago EKKO motorhome is all-new and adventure-ready

Meet the Winnebago EKKO. This adventure-ready RV combines the efficiencies of a B-Van with the capacity of a Class C motorhome. Designed to go where other RVs can’t, the EKKO has all wheel drive, a 455-watt solar power kit, extensive all-season insulation, and much more so you can go further and camp longer.

The massive, heated gear garage with its L-track cargo tie down system allows you to store bikes, inflatable kayaks, fishing rods, tackle boxes, and other outdoor gear. Inside, the living area provides all the comforts of home, including Winnebago’s Flex Bed system, galley kitchen and dry/wet bath with an innovative pivoting wall. Plus, an optional pop-top provides extra sleeping space.   

Let’s hop in and take a closer look at some of the features that make the Winnebago EKKO the ultimate adventure RV!

All wheel drive. All weather. Off-grid ready. The Winnebago EKKO is made for adventure.

EKKO was built to camp almost anywhere

Winnebago built the EKKO on an all-wheel drive Ford Transit chassis paired with a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine. The engine delivers 310 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque for navigating steep terrain, while the 31-gallon fuel tank greatly extends the EKKO’s range. This agile motorhome measures just over 23 feet in length and is 7 ft. 2.5 inches wide, allowing the EKKO to fit into tight campsites with ease.

The cab is filled with conveniences like a rearview monitoring system, 8-inch color touchscreen for navigation and entertainment, and dual USB ports. Standard safety features include adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, pre-collision braking, driver alert and blind spot monitoring. Both driver and co-pilot seats have fixed lumbar support and multiple adjustments so you can stay comfortable while you travel to destinations unknown.

No hookups? No problem for EKKO

The Winnebago EKKO is equipped with three solar panels that pump out 455-watts of power. Standard lithium-ion batteries provide extra energy for venturing off the grid. A second dedicated alternator charges the batteries while driving. A 50-gallon freshwater tank plus proportionate waste tanks make extended trips possible, too.

Additionally, the EKKO has been prepped for camping in any weather. All tanks and water lines inside the coach are above the floor. There’s also extensive all-season insulation in the roof, walls and floor, plus dual-pane acrylic windows to keep you comfortable. Add in multiple insulated exterior compartments, and your camping season doesn’t have to end when the temperature drops.

Enjoy the comforts of home wherever you roam

Efficiently designed, the EKKO’s interior includes everything you need to enjoy your adventures more. The galley kitchen has a stainless steel sink with cover, pantry, fridge/freezer, microwave oven, and two-burner cooktop. An adjustable, flip-up counter extension provides extra room for prepping meals. It’s also a great spot to work while you’re on the road. You’ll find LED lights, USB charging ports, and 110V/12V outlets throughout the coach for added convenience.

One standout feature is the innovative dry/wet bath built with a pivoting wall. The wall pivots to separate the shower from the rest of the bathroom and makes washing up easy while keeping the rest of your RV dry. Other bathroom amenities include an Oxygenics® shower head, medicine cabinet, robe/towel hook, rounded sink, and swiveling cassette toilet.

When you’re ready to call it a day, settle in for a good night’s sleep with Winnebago’s Flex Bed system. Choose from two twin beds (32 in. x 76 in.) or one queen (60 in. x 80 in.) bed, perfect for solo travelers or couples. Drawer and wardrobe storage under bed and a night stand help keep things organized and clutter-free. If you need extra sleeping space for guests, the EKKO also has an optional pop-top. This sleeping space measures 52 in. x 79 in. and provides penthouse views. The pop-top bed is a great option for camping with kids and a very unique feature to find in a Class B motorhome.

Last but not least, we have to call out the EKKO’s massive gear garage. It offers 54.6 cu.ft. of pass-through storage with an L-track cargo tie down system for securing your gear. So bring your mountain bikes, inflatable kayaks, and anything else you want! The gear garage is also heated and has LED lighting as well as 110V/12V outlets, too. And just in case that’s not enough room, the EKKO has a 5,000 lb. trailer hitch to haul even more.

Meet Paige the explorer behind Project Rustic

General RV is sponsoring Project Rustic, a five-month long effort by the MI Dept. of Natural Resources to gather information about rustic state forest campgrounds and update their Recreation Search directory of campsites and outdoor recreation opportunities. Paige, an AmeriCorps member serving with the DNR, will be traveling by RV to visit sites and gather data and photos. Christina, a communications specialist at General RV, interviewed Paige to find out more about her and this exciting project. The transcript below has been edited for length and clarity.

Meet Paige and learn about Project Rustic

Christina: Welcome, Paige! Tell us a little about yourself!

Paige: I am a second term Huron Pines AmeriCorps member serving with the DNR up here in Traverse City but I’m from the Grand Rapids area originally. I have a background in natural resources which led me to me serving with the DNR and my interest in this project.

Christina: And how did you get this ‘dream job’ to travel around Michigan in an RV?

Paige (laughing): Last year, in a meeting with the Parks and Rec division, they were discussing efforts to update the Recreation Search database with more information for users to prepare for their trips or learn about a certain campground or area. I thought the best way to do that would be to take a boots on the ground approach and visit each campground myself. So, I called my supervisor and proposed this crazy idea. She was all for it and was like, “Ok, let’s see what we can do.” With a lot of help and support from a lot of DNR folks and partners we were able to make Project Rustic happen.

Michigan DNR partners with General RV Center for Project Rustic

Michigan DNR partners with General RV Center for Project Rustic

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is partnering with General RV Center for Project Rustic. Project Rustic is a five-month long, statewide RV tour of Michigan’s rustic campgrounds that will help improve the DNR’s Recreation Search directory. This directory is an important resource for campers and outdoor explorers who can find campsites and recreation opportunities, like parks and trails, around the state.

The Project Rustic logo is an olive green badge with a red band across the middle that reads Project Rustic. At the bottom of the badge is an illustrated forest scene with trees silhouetted against a starry sky with a moon.

The tour is the brainchild of Paige L., a Huron Pines AmeriCorps member serving with the DNR, who felt one of the best ways to capture the details of each destination was to experience it herself. She pitched her idea of a boots on the ground approach to her boss who loved it. After some internal planning and conversations with sponsor partners, Project Rustic received the green light.

“Today’s traveler turns to the internet first for information, which is why the DNR has prioritized improving the depth and accuracy of data available,” said Ami Van Antwerp, a DNR communications specialist. “Having Paige take the lead made total sense because she represents the next generation of travelers and is taking that unique perspective with her.”
