2011 Solera...bought mine at Lewis RV and paid the advertised sale price..no haggling over the sale price...it was rock bottom...
Now, not being affiliated w/Lewis RV, I did not find any dealer online or dealers I visited that would beat Lewis RV sales prices...

Brania,
If you have bargain leverage on your Solera, I would avoid the in-dash entertainment/navigation system by Magnadyne. It is impossible to see the display screen. otherwise, it's clumsy to operate. opt for something else or tell them to leave it off and get your own.

Also, see about a sway bar. You'll want one eventually.

I got the dealer to include swivel seats and hydraulic stabilizers.

Bargain hard and get all you can.

I'm in the process of receiving my 2013 Solera this coming week so don't know much about it but I went with the propane gen. we don't do much dry camping and don't look at running the gen very much. Also I like the idea that the propane burns cleaner than the diesel. Call me Mr. green if you like.

I have the propane gen. It will run about 12-14 hours with AC running. Also tv off and on during that time. Only problem while traveling is you have to find a dealer that sells propane.

MPG answer from Local Dealership on Solera VS Navion:
12 to16MPG on the Solera and 13 to 18MPG on the Navion. Mileage depends on speed and driving conditions. Solera is a bit heavier as well as taller and wider.

LP limit

How long should a tank of propane last running only the refrigerator? Any ideas.

I just got my 2013 Solera S which I order back in March and paid 67500 for it. Check around at local dealers which is what I did, remember thou if you go with and factory direct purchase you may be waiting up to 4 months to receive it.
