We have had a 2003 Brave 34D since new. It has been a great motorhome. We had the brake recall completed, but we never had an issue with the brakes. The only other recall was with the Samsung microwave. Our fridge was not affected by the recall so you may want to check the serial number of the unit you are looking at.
We bought it to sleep a family of 5. Now as empty nesters, there is a lot of extra storage. We did not go with the washer/dryer so that adds storage.
Fully loaded with 5 on board and 3/4 tank of fresh water, it was just under max total weight. However, both axels were well under their limits. We have the Workhorse W20 chassis.
With Koni shocks and a rear trac bar, the unit drives great. I can cruise down he highway with only one hand on the wheel. The handling with the stock shocks was a handful so you may want to check if they have been upgraded.
Recently, the Sony backup monitor went out. This is a major fix since you have to replace both the monitor and camera. However, now I have a very clear color backup monitor.
No other major repairs not related to me doing "upgrades" (TV, sound system, 6V batteries). Lots of service of course. Especially since we are still working so we don't get out as much as we would like. I did replace plugs and wires this year.
We tow a 23' boat which is just under 5K lbs and the 8.1/Allison combo has never failed us. It pulls the hills surprising well. In fact, if I was to get another motorhome, I would go with a used coach on a Workhorse chassis. We have 20K miles on the unit. I would not worry about 35K.
The unit has always been covered so there have been no roof sealant issues. I did replace the tires last year due to age.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
