We purchased the 2015 Brave 26A. All in all not a lot of build issues related to quality. It came from another CW dealership in FL and was missing the round table that you can insert behind the driver's area. Order and replaced. The major difference between the 26A and 27B is that the 26A is on a 20 inch shorter wheelbase (158). Ford does not use their heavy duty track bar on the 16K chassis (its optional). I have upgraded the shocks and added upgraded front and rear stabilizers and the TruCenter system. Could have gone cheaper but when the grandkids are in the coach I don't want to play woulda, coulda, shoulda.
As for quality, (not a 27B issue) I am really disappointed in the design of the fold down section that converts the bed from a twin (bunk) to a queen. It involves a leg that folds out to support the 4th corner. The leg is wooden and is attached to the fold out with a bracket with short screws. It slips and is a candidate for fold under. I have placed a non-skid cap to the leg to lesson sway, but it's only a matter of time before the bracket comes loose. It will be interesting to see if WB comes up with a better design. We like the flexibility idea but it almost appears that the leg design was an afterthought.
