That's next month - I guess I can wait that long! Will it be unveiled in Harrisburg?

We'll do the same with the Solera once it's finished. The production manager had the new Class C out for a weekend trip and a few lucky campers got a sneak peek (great reviews). We refrain from publishing anything because we typically make a few changes after testing. I'll post pictures and a floor plan on here and the Facebook page the second I'm able.
the solera 24ms floorplan on a sunseeker?

I am surprised this has not been updated.

I will take deliver of a 2013 Solera 24R in the next week or so. We bought it at the Pomona show. I do not know if it was available any earlier than that.

Pop-why did you sell your trailmanor

It is not yet sold. I will sell it after I have possession of the Solera.

In 2005 we bought the Trailmanor to go camping with some comfort. It served us well.

In 2008 we bought 2 ATVs and 2 motorcycles. So when we go camping we take the GMC 2500HD to tow the Trailmanor and the Chevy 1500HD to tow the ATV trailer.

Both trucks get about 11 mpg while towing. So that is the equivalent of 5.5 mpg. We will now tow the ATV trailer behind the Solera. The Solera seems to be getting 14 to 18 mpg. Even if it got 11 mpg that is a lot better than what my two trucks are getting combined.

Taking two trucks means that I drive the GMC with TM and my wife drives the Chevy with the ATVs. We usually leave Thursday around 1:00 and the kids (29 and 32) meet us Friday night. My wife has a strong preference for riding with me instead of towing behind me.

In the past year my wife has had double knee replacement surgery. Getting down to the floor is getting to be a real difficult task for her.

Climbing into the TM rear bed is another difficult task. The Solera 24R has a rear slide for the walk around queen bed.

The Trailmanor was stored in the garage at home. The Solera will be parked in the driveway. My driveway is 26 feet long. The Solera is 24.5 feet long. I do not want to pay storage fees for a lot that is quite some distance from home.

I already have one interested party for the TM. I live in San Jose and they live in San Diego. People go a long way to find a used TM in good condition. My TM is in excellent condition.

On the S the generator is on the driver's side. I'm sure it is located in the same place on all three version. The only difference in the three is interior and the R has a back slide.
