One of America's most popular motorhomes is making a comeback in the shape of the 2015 model year Winnebago Brave. Harking back to its swinging 60s predecessor, the latest iteration of the Brave is adorned with the hallmark eyebrow above the windshield.
As it happens, the Flying W is ready to offer fun and adventure from coast to coast once again. So what does $95,199 buy you these days when it comes to motorhomes? Well, the 26-foot entry-level version of the Winnebago Brave. If you need that extra foot, prepare to pay $3,000 more for the 2015 Winnebago Brave 27B.

Although there's no word yet on more frugal diesel alternatives, the modern Brave sits on a Ford F53 chassis and draws 362 horsepower from a 6.8-liter Triton V10 gasoline engine coupled to a TorqShift five-speed automatic gearbox. Automatic hydraulic leveling jacks, 7-pin trailer wiring and a trailer hitch with 5,000-lb drawbar are also on the menu.

Step inside and you'll be met by cab seats with adjustable armrests and multi-adjustable slide, recline or swivel functions, a stereo that supports Bluetooth and iPod connectivity and a Rand McNally RV sat-nav system. Highlight comfort features include a 28 (Brave 26A) or 32-inch (Brave 27B) high definition TV coupled to an amplified digital antenna system, microwave oven, a power lift StudioLoft bunk bed hidden in the iconic brow and a queen-sized bed, as well as a 14,800 BTU ducted air conditioning system.

The Iowa-based motorhome manufacturer also fitted the latest generation Brave RV with heated mirrors, LED ceiling lights, two available floorpans, a 19-foot motorized awning and a waterfall countertop in the kitchen that features built-in extensions to make life easier for the family cook. Whatever way you look at it, the 2015 model year Brave even in 26A guise is pretty versatile for weekend getaways or extended trips with your loved ones.

Last but not least, the 2015 Winnebago Brave RV comes with a 12-month/15,000-mile basic limited warranty, a 36-month/36,000-mile limited warranty for the structure and a 10-year limited parts-and-labor warranty.
