Same here, 2012.

I have been putting off doing my own, if I could purchase a factory specific model at a reasonable price I'd be in.

I talked to Parts. While they prefer to deal with dealers due to shipping location/staff and (hopefully knowledgeable installers) they would be willing to make an exception in situations like this.

As for the "reasonable price" part..I have no control over that.

I will say, I spec'd out the mattresses and the latest version uses a microfiber cover. If its not microfiber, the softness of the memory foam is not fully felt with a stiffer fabric. It's a memory foam top, with a denser foam core so that it doesn't break down in the middle. The mattress at the FROG rally is the same foam construction but with the older cover (stiffer).

24R, 2400R, 2401R Memory Foam Mattress w/ micro fiber ticking: S70248
24S, 2400S, 2401S Memory Foam Mattress w/ micro fiber ticking: S70271

You can contact parts at 574-206-7600. I have no idea on pricing.

After seeing this post, we contacted our sales rep via email to make sure the 2015 Solera 24R that we have on order will come with the new memory foam mattress. She said she would check on it, but STILL hasn't contacted us back. Other than going thru her, (which I know we should, but she isn't always the most knowledgeable) how can we be sure we'll get one of these mattresses on our bed?

Thanks for all your valuable "insider" information!

Are there any other changes in the later 2015 Solera 24J with the corner bed? I am especially interested in changes in the windows.

Windows are all frameless windows.
Mattresses are all memory foam. So Behindthewheel if you have something being built now, it will have the memory foam top.

The OP is more than six months ago so he's probably already purchased a MH. But for what's worth, I recommend considering W floorplan as well even though no dealer has it to show.
As for where to get it, I worked with RVD and a couple of local dealers at the same time for months. I got a good deal from RVD and was about to place the order, but a local dealer came through at last minute. So I was happy to place order with them. I ordered Forester MBS 2401W. Solera has all the models except W.

Brian, I just took delivery (3 weeks ago) of a 24R. Is there a way I can tell if I have a Memory Foam Mattress on my rear bed?
