First Trip in Solera
Headed out on the first trip with my 2016 Solera. Destination Ft Wilderness at Disney. Only a 3 1/2 hour trip from SW Florida. Refueled about 30 miles from Orlando, not that I needed to. I wanted to check my mileage, I'm very happy to report 14 mpg. Considering the engine isn't even close to break in, it will only get better from here. I had three issues, two with the TVs. The front TV automatically turns on when the generator is turned on or when the Solera is plugged into shore power. The rear TV has a dead pixel in a very noticeable place. The 3rd item is something that was missing. A quick call to the dealership Palm RV in Ft Myers, FL ( my salesman - Tony ) and I was reassured that everything was going to be taking care off. Today I ventured on foot to see if I could find other Solera owners. Ft Wilderness has 788 camping sites, broken down into loops. After a leisure walk for 3 hours I didn't find one other Solera owner and only three other Mercedes Sprinter chassis RV ( 2 Winnebago Views and 1 unknown ). Are these rigs the best kept secret? Why are we not seeing more of them?
