Looks similar to my 2251 except the sink and medicine chest is outside the bathroom door

Thanks.
If they erase the clearance issues (I do a lot of desert camping) then I will put them on the order list.
Possible photo of the new location when completed?

I will try and remember that. I'm actually in the office this week.

Just received my 24S last month and love it! It has the couch option.
Couple of comments about the W....
1. It would be nice if a couch option were available. I've had a MH with the U-shaped dinette in the past and it was a pain. The back is straight up, making TV viewing without a cushion or pillow very uncomfortable. The corners become wasted space. And, finally, the area next to the window is impossible to manuver into with the table in place.
2. If you will notice in the video, the sewage pipe exits near the left rear bumper. It's in a place that could easily be dragged off during entry or exit into a steep driveway or pavement transition. I had a pull behind Nomad with a rear bath that had this same setup....it was a nightmare! Had to have skid plates designed and installed to protect the pipe.
I realize that that location is also a tricky design problem since all utilities must exit near the left rear of any RV and sewer pipes must drain. And, the slide mechanism is located in that same area.
Suggest to FR design engineers...to get the proper drainage for the pipe, raise the floor in the bathroom, (similar to my S), and place the pipe in a compartment at the back-rear of the MH.
Otherwise, beside lack of larger storage areas, a nice looking design.

We've been running that same design on the 2250 for about 2 years now with no issues.

Thank you, Mr. Clemens, for you quick response!

I found only the 2251SLE on the FR website. I assume it replaced the 2250. Regardless, the 2251, like the Solera W has a full driver's side slide and bath on the street side. And, that the 2251 is on a Ford/Chevy chassis with different size dynamics that the same design on the MB.
The distance from the rear axle AND the height are major factors in whether or not the sewage pipe is vulnerable during steep driveway/pavement entries and exits. My only observation was the APPARENT location of the pipe in the video you shot for the Solera W.
To be sure, I did a copious amount of research before purchasing my new FR Solera 24S. I considered the W. Primarily decided on the S because of storage..both in and out.
Let me be clear...
There is no MB based Class C that even comes close in value! Look no further!
This is my 5th MH and have been known to over-analyze each purchase....Sorry!
Thank you Mr. Clemens for your honest and open dialogue and quick responses on this forum with just us common folk! Keep up the good work.
Maybe I'll get to meet you at the FMCA, Goshen, IN rally in June.
RJ

End of May is not likely. Right now we're looking June-July for new orders.
