Sunseekers also come with the fiberglass running boards if you get full body paint. Ofherwise they are aluminum.

I think the fiberglass ones look nicer but there is little practical difference. Just cosmetic.

bgilly, sorry I left off the MBS when I was talking about the Sunseeker.( I was comparing the MBS Sunseeker to the MBS Forester) the Husband doesn't want a large motor home( regular Sunseeker) since it would be just the two of us. Sorry for the confusion. Yes I know about all the differences, have been researching for the last 3 years and read the posts on here regularly. P.S. this is such a great site, so many helpful people

We have a Sunseeker 3170 with aluminum running boards. They won't scratch like fiberglass. The Sunseeker's standard white coach finish will not soak up heat in the summer (touch the trim stripes in the summer sun and feel the heat difference, but the body paint is nicer looking but will be more difficult to match if damaged.). To my knowledge there is nothing mechanically different between a Sunseeker and a Forrester. Absolutely no regrets for not getting a Forrester.
