Does every Solera need one?
1. You can find them for around $180-200 with shipping. Do a search on the Hellwig style #.
2. Papa P installed in less than an hour. If you can find a shop in your area who will do it in that time, you can multiply one hour by their shop rate. In our area, shop rate is running around $90/hour
3. That's entirely subjective. If you are comfortable driving the Solera without it, by all means save your money. However, it will give a much more stable feeling when going around curves, etc., and particularly in windy conditions and slipstream from passing trucks, which tend to want to push the rear end of the MH to the side as they pass. I installed heavy duty sway bar on my SUV and it made a tremendous difference, and I anticipate the same improvement with the Solera. I'll be ordering mine as soon as my next welfare check comes.
Here's a link to what looks to be a pretty good price:
