More Solera vs Sunseeker mbs vs Forester mbs

Could not reply to the last similar thread since it was over 170 days old. Will be ordering a 2016 Solera/Sunseeker/Forester soon and getting mixed messages from online and salespeople. Please comment on the following:
*Best not to buy a Solera since the brand is going out and it may effect resale value(still can order 2016 Soleras though)
*Buy a Forester since they come off a different assembly line than the other 2 which produces higher quality.
*When asking about the pros/cons on the paint option I just get the paint looks nicer.

Another concern-I am 150 miles to the closet Mercedes chassis dealer. I currently do the basic maintenace on my diesel pickup. Any maintenance required to be done at a Mercedes dealer?

  • We still build a Solera but are turning our focus towards Forester MBS and Sunseeker MBS; both of these models are built on the same exact chassis as the Solera. The Forester has a few more upgraded amenities that Sunseeker does not have.
  • Every unit we have goes across the same production lines and is all hand crafted by the same talented production line.
  • The paint does look good but it's going to come down to personal preference. We finish everything with a clear coat or gel coat to prevent fading later on down the road. You're coach will stay a consistent color for years to come whether it is painted or white with graphics.

Is there a YouTube video that talks construction of the Forester MBS or Solera MBS. Winnebago has one on the view that does a pretty good jib describing what they do. It would be great for Forest River to have one that talks to their construction techniques.
