Winnebago pushed the boundaries of adventure travel – again. The popular off-grid Winnebago EKKO Transit is now joined by the new off-road ready Winnebago EKKO Sprinter

Built on the rugged Mercedes-Benz® Sprinter all-wheel-drive chassis with elevated ground clearance, remote areas are more accessible. A 2.0L 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine with 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission provides the power you need, and standard all-terrain tires make low-traction terrain easier to navigate. 

The EKKO Sprinter is not only taller, but at 170″ the EKKO Sprinter wheelbase is 18″ longer overall than the EKKO Transit. The result is more room for a truly enviable basecamp. 

Inside, the EKKO Sprinter’s living area is amazingly versatile. The multifunctional lounge can shift to 4 different modes. There’s passenger seating for two with a pull-up table. Need a workspace? Go standard configuration – with the lounge and folding table extension working together. Want to kick back with your crew? Swiveling cab seats plus the two side sofas and the adjustable table create an inviting U-shaped dining space for up to 5. Then in sleep mode, the living space converts to create a third bed.

In the bedroom area, recharge with two side by side 80” long twin/flex beds that are now 4” longer than in the EKKO Transit and include storage underneath. The beds can also be combined to create one larger bed. Add the optional pop up, and the sleeping capacity rises to 5.

The flexible galley in the EKKO Sprinter has bragging rights, too. In addition to the new microwave/convection oven, a portable single-burner induction cooktop gives the option to cook outdoors. Clean up and preparation are a breeze thanks to a large galley sink bowl. And deep-access drawers give you ample storage and organization. 

The latest Class C model also features the same unique dry-wet bath found in the original EKKO Transit. Its unique pivoting wall keeps the cassette-style toilet, medicine cabinet, and mirror out of the way when the shower is in use. 

Ready to talk boondocking? 520W solar panels, a 320Ah Lithionics® lithium battery bank (with option to upgrade to 630Ah) and a 2500W LP generator come standard for your off-grid power supply. And impressive holding tanks include a 50-gallon freshwater reservoir plus a 51-gallon gray water tank. A Truma® water heater and furnace are also standard. 

Just like its predecessor, the EKKO Sprinter is built for extended-season camping, with all-season insulation in the roof, walls, and floors. Exterior compartments are also insulated with a heated gear garage that can easily fit two bikes. And to ensure colder temperatures don’t hold you back, the holding tanks and water lines are located inside the vehicle.

When you’re on the road, you’ll enjoy the latest Sprinter tech features, including the Mercedes MBUX® infotainment system. Onboard navigation keeps you on track and Apple CarPlay® and Android AutoTM keep you connected. Driver assistance features like a digital rearview mirror, active lane keeping assist and DISTRONIC PLUS® adaptive cruise control keep your journeys stress free. 

So, if you’re craving the freedom to go wherever you want, whenever you want, the new off-grid, off-road EKKO Sprinter is the Class C camper for you.
