Hopefully someone with a 2016 r version can comment. 1600 is about the right price for that upgrade.
When we ordered our Sunseeker, we ordered it pretty much loaded so to speak and had the rear stabilizers added. First off they are too far inward and close together to be used for leveling nor are they designed to lift the rear tires off the ground. But they do a fine job of taking the side to side sway caused by movement inside due to changes in rear spring loading.
Alhough Forest River does not offer the Bigfoot 4 point stabializer system on the MBS Sprinter, most likely due to weight concerns. Bigfoot does offer a complete system and also sells the front stabilizers for the MBS chassis along with the four point leveling controller.
If you do a search, you will find an article by a person who installed the front stabilizers in his driveway. It was a three day process for him
Considering the price of the four point automatic system for the MBS is almost $3900 plus installation from a Bigfoot dealer, $1600 is pretty reasonable for the two point manual system option.
BTW, one thing I have noticed is that not even the stabilizers nor the springs will keep the new 2400W level when the full side slide out is extended. The weight of the slide out itself lets the motorhome list to the drivers left a few degrees. Due to this I am considering a pair of slide out jacks.
We have the luxury of having room and weight capacity available in our enclosed motorcycle transport trailer should I find a set that works.
