I suggest you go to the winnbago forum with questions about the brave. I do know there were issues with rusting of the windshield frame on some models.
The Workhorse Custom Chassis forum will help with information on that. Also it would help to know the chassis model number.

It's a good solid coach. Nothing fancy but most Brave owners are very happy. Do check for the windshield post rust that az bound mentioned - it is a fairly common problem on Braves.

I believe that would be the coach model number. I was referring to the Workhorse chassis model number.

This is my second Workhorse chassis and am well pleased.

If you have the vin # I can identify the chassis model. Has to be a P32 or one of the W series chassis.
I can tell you it has a GM 8.1 liter/496 cid engine.
The differences are mainly in the type of suspension and the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR).
I have owned both a P32 and now a W series and consider them the best gas motorhone chassis made.
The model number would be P32 or W20, W22, W24,

Get your VIN Number and go here Brake Recall Resource Center to see if it was included in the Brake Recall, if so make sure it was done.
