New 2015 Winnie Brave 26a owner

My beautiful bride and I just celebrated our 4 year anniversary (dating, not marriage but we don't care. Only been married for a year and a half)

She and I have been talking about getting a RV one day. Well I got a chance at a ridiculous deal on a brand new one and took it! So for her anniversary I got her an RV! We need some people to go travel with now!

It's a retro design from the 1970s Brave. Iconic brow and all! I LOVE it. It's just one off enough for me.

This is my competition buddy. He is very excited we won't be sleeping on the ground at the next KCBS Comp!

This is my lovely bride checking out our new ride!!

Started moving in and went camping over the weekend!

We swapped out the shower curtain for something more appropriate!

Now some stock photos so you can see it all cleaned up. I'll take some pictures of ours once my wife is done making it ours!<br><br><img alt=""

This couch sold me.. I mean, it's awesome. PERFECT for comp bbq. Or tailgating!

And an extra bed over the main seats!

It came with some surprises on the suspension. Looks like upgraded timberens, there are anti-sway bars already installed and Bilstein shocks! Is this normal? I'm planning on doing the CHF I have been reading about and looking into other suspension upgrades. I know we want to add TPMS and a compressor. But we don't plan to make any major modifications till we have exhausted the factory warranty.

That is wonderful! And those new pillows look like they were designed for the Winnie! Are you Steeler fans? Could be with that beautiful MH! Welcome!
