HELP! 2001 Winnebago Brave

We are fairly new in RVing (traveling within 100 mile radius of the house) 2 years with our first being a class C 24' w/slideout Georgie boy, Maverick, we are looking at going to a 31' Class A Brave 2001 (44,100 miles) that has had 1 owner all these years. The inside is absolutely in excellent shape and wife is very picky, the outside is in fairly good shape but the passenger side is faded and small section of outer shell has come loose. What should we ask dealer to check out for sure before we take off in it? Are we going to start having problems with anything right off and what can we expect to watch for? We just want to make the right decision before we buy it!! Give us some advise bad or good!

Welcome to IRV2. Congrats on the class A. You may want to get an independent inspection done by an RV Tech.
Good luck.

Dont want to burst your bubble but I would have concern for the outer shell. Possible delamination from water leaks. Could be the tip of the iceberg.

Perhaps others will more knowledge on this will chime in.

Best wishes!

Delamination can be a real headache. It is costly to fix and you don't know what they will find once they start. Had one that I bought used and when I seen it had problems I traded, you are lucky you seen it before you bought. Jim
