What options does the MB chassis have?

We have ordered our new 24W and plan on picking it up in March. I have been studying the MB owners manual and just wanted to know what options do they usually equip new RV chassis with? Thanks in advance...

Our 2013 chassis has speed control, AC, intermittent wipers, elec. mirrors,
auto door locks and simple trip computer.

Is this what you are after?

For a complete listing of everything your MB chassis comes with, you need what the industry refers to as the "data sheet". To obtain that you need to smooze a MB dealer, who can access your vin# in their system and print one. It contains everything, including axle ratios, alternator output, all options, etc.

Do you mean 2401w of either Sunseeker or Forester? I ordered Forester 2401w two weeks ago, and am trying to find out the status but to no avail. I know I'll be disappointed if I expected a timely update like Amazon orders. But there's no reason it can't be better.
Go luck to you!

HomeOnWheels, I have messaged you back the same day that you have messaged me each time.

My last message explained that when we get an order, we will confirm with the dealer that we got it, but we do not get a serial number or VIN until the unit is actually scheduled. Once we schedule the unit it will get a VIN number. I also confirmed that I talked to the rep, we did have the order in hand and he was going to schedule it in the next schedule that was getting cut last week. We would have copy with serial number and VIN shortly.

I need to confirm, but the serial number should be FRF031916, offline in Feb as planned. Once it comes offline, it will get full body paint that adds some time and then ship. Right now its looking like an end of Feb delivery to the dealer.

DISCLAIMER: this is just an estimated date. Unlike Amazon, we do not have these units sitting on the shelf. It has to be built, then painted, then shipped. At any one of these stages various things can cause delays. Supplier shortages, chassis recalls (one time Mercedes had a computer glitch, we could not ship any units until they came out and did an update...this added 3 weeks), weather. The list goes on. It just seems to be Murphy's law that when I quote a date to a customer, they come back later when it is delayed saying "well the rep said...". We do everything we can to expedite retail orders...but there is a process to all of this.

It's all good now, Brian. Jeremie just confirmed the serial number.
When I signed the purchase order two weeks ago, my dealer said I would need to sign off on the final build sheet which, to this date, hasn't happened, hence all the confusion. My dealer told me two days ago there is apparently a 'recent change in the system' at FR that no serial number is given until the schedule is cut.
Like I said, I don't expect you to get involved with status update. That should be dealer's responsibility. But in this case, my dealer was also confused
