The “UFO” stands for Universal Fuel Option “” the new Workhorse platform is a rear-engine chassis that offers RVers, for the first time, the choice of a gas or diesel engine with the same chassis. “UFO” also stands for Universal Footprint Option: the chassis accommodates either a gas or diesel engine in the same space package. Manufacturers can build identical motor homes on either a gas- or diesel-powered frame, making the choice of engine a simple “check the box” procedure for the motor home buyer.
And, in another exciting innovation, “UFO” stands for Universal Floorplan Option. In a key engineering move, Workhorse reconfigured the drivetrain and frame so that manufacturers can build upon a completely flat floor from front to back, without the intrusion of the engine and cooling system into the rear bedroom or cockpit space. Workhorse UFO™ is the first and only platform that provides this truly universal open-floor design capability, opening up a more creative mix of gas-, diesel- and towable-based floorplan designs.
