I agree. Those cheap ply skins will rot in short order anyway, if you don't keep all the seams and penetrations sealed. Doesn't seem to be made for a long and trouble free life.Can't really tell, but it looks like some of the internal structure is aluminum. If so, there will be tons of condensation and therefore rotting plywood in no time.
It's from the link where WB is bragging about their wall construction.Is this a photo of the construction on the EKKO specifically?
But it is very possible that the EKKO uses different construction, look at it and compare it to other Winnebago’s, looks like it could very well be constructed differently, or maybe not. Bottom line, it has not been confirmed that this represents EKKO construction.I agree. Those cheap ply skins will rot in short order anyway, if you don't keep all the seams and penetrations sealed.

Their website also says:If you look at the videos of the EKKO prototype it is clear that the walls and doors are thicker than the typical Winnebago Class C. They very well could be using a thicker foam core on the EKKO.
Agree, show me another option for $131,000 (the current actual discounted price for the EKKO) that has the features of the EKKO in terms of 4 seats, 4 season capability, lithium batteries with solar and auxiliary alternator, garage storage, option for sleeping 4, large water tank, etc. on an AWD Transit or similar chassis. Not something that could be a DIY build, a completed vehicle.I see a lot of people comparing the features of vehicles 2x, 3x, 4x, and 5x the price to the Winnebago Ekko. Surprisingly, it won't come out ontop...I wonder why...
It could be interesting to get one to review for OJ or Expedition Portal. I have to say that Winnebago's effort with the Revel, and their continued development with the updated model shows great promise.
Every RV won't work for every person. That doesn't mean it is bad.
big fan of that rhino uro camper and also love the hymers units with drop down bed vs using the dinette seats. I have 3 kids so will have no choice but to build myself!So this is very similar to what I had been thinking about (and trying to convince my wife) to build. Reminds me alot of the Total Composites transit, and the uro-camper Rhino. The problem I had is that I want to sleep 4 on the inside. So if they would have just put the rear bed east/west, it would have made enough room for a full dinette, then id just need a bunk over the top of that. Which is probably similar to what I will end up with, if I can keep my wife away from a 27ft class C...
Here's the adzel site https://www.azdelonboard.com/
Ok so here is the confirmed construction material for the ekko. Its azdel composite fiberglass block foam panels. Thoughts and insights?!
