I've had my Solera for about 4 months now had it on three trips including a 6000 mile trip. We love ours and find it very easy to get around in and drive. We went into downtown San Antonio TX with it and were able to get into a parking lot there with no problems at all. I don't know what kind of mileage your SUV get but you'll find around 13-15 with the Solera.

SUV got about 15 mpg - but gas, not diesel. Im really glad to hear people are happy with their Solera's. Also, your puppy dog pic is adorable!

We just returned from a 2,000 mile trip in our new Solera (our first real trip) and I couldn't agree more about not having to worry about dirty travel plaza rest rooms!! We loved being able to stop whenever and wherever we wanted. We loved everything about our Solera. I say......go for it! Don't worry about the negative comments! Do what you think you will enjoy!!

I don't know what the seat belt laws are in the USA. You might be braking the law if you are not belted in and are walking around the unit. I would not even try to make coffee while the unit is moving, it would be an accident waiting to happen. The up side is that you could pull over to the side of the road and go to the bathroom or make a coffee then resume your trip.

BTW - I would be driving it most of the time!
Not to mention...most B's are more money than a Solera.

That's all part of the fun!

Congratulations on your decision and the purchase. I wish you many happy years of Rving.

And, by the way, that's a really nice looking machine!
