The Solera rear slide mattress is in two pieces - head and foot. The split is done at an angle so that the "head" portion of the mattress slides up on top of the foot portion when the slide is retracted.
I've found that the bed doesn't need to be remade - make the bed as usual, retract the slide (helping position the head portion a little) - and push the head portion back out the next time you extend the slide. With a fitted bottom sheet (fitted for a "short queen") everything seems to go back together pretty well.
I think the Sunseeker MBS is basically a twin of the Solera. There may be minor differences in finish or options, but the underlying unit is the same.
PS - If you're looking at a new unit, take a look at the new "W" floorplan. Looks like a great idea, though it does seem to reduce the amount of basement storage. I think it uses the same bed design to allow the queen bed to ride on the slide.
