Our first Winnebago EKKO walkthrough, while popular, wasn’t really the full review we wanted to publish. We were only able to get a little bit of footage during the hectic launch schedule. Certainly not the kind of in-depth review that we’re known for. It was enough to get everyone started, but we always wanted to go back and finish the job.
Well, the stars aligned, and we were able to make another trip to Winnebago for some quality time with the EKKO prototype. Here you go, but get comfortable, this review is over an hour long!
The coach we’re reviewing in this video is literally the same prototype we showed you in our first review. Since we first walked through it, Winnebago has been hard at work trying to break it (literally). They’ve been torture testing it, and they even had it on a shaker table to simulate years of road use. It held up really well, and it’s interesting for us to get a flavor of the kind of testing they put a new design through.
Also – while we were at Winnebago, we were able to sneak around the grounds and have a look at some other EKKOs in various stages of assembly. So we learned about some things that will be different in the finished vehicles from this prototype. Where we know of those, we call them out in this video, with pictures of the updated versions. We mention about 20 or so changes in the video. We also went nuts with a tape measure, and you’ll find dimensions scattered throughout the review. We had the coach to ourselves for the better part of a day, and we used that whole time gathering the hours of footage that make up this review
All in all – if you’re interested in the Winnebago EKKO and you have questions: this video is probably your best (and for now, likely only) way to find out the answers. Seriously – it’s that complete.
Anyway, hope you enjoy the video.
(I think we should have made a trailer for the video, it’s so long!)
