That's Interesting that they told you the Solera name is gone. I picked up my brand new 2016 W at Lewis RV and it is Solera.

I think I first saw bclemmons who is a regular out here and works for forest river comment that they were dropping solera name and going with sunseeker across the lines to streamline product lines. It was the dealer who told me they have seen some sunseekers per the paperwork show up with solera badging. Confusing sounds like it isn't consistent yet.

It will take time to get all the Soleras through the system, so I'm sure you'll see some out there. All of them, regardless of name have held their values well due to the Mercedes Diesel and fuel economy. In addition there are MUCH, MUCH higher price points on that chassis, so they end up being a really great value with strong demand.

Thanks Brian. I love our Solera. It has the outdoor speakers and Hellwig sway bar new options. with about 2600 miles on her since June she is getting about 14.5 to 15.0 MPH depending on how I drive.

Thanks for the clarification on the names. I agree it doesn't matter. The MBS diesel front end was the part we couldn't compromise on regardless of what it is called.

I have spent a tremendous amount of time out here on the forums and although I thought I knew everything that would be installed on ours, I had some pleasant factory installed surprises that were on it when I picked it up.

- Helwig sway bar
- glass led lenses throughout
- soft touch ceiling
- memory foam everything
- artic pack for the tanks
- prewired for solar
- new design led tail lights

Just arrived in FL yesterday with it for a weeks vacation with the family. We have put 1600 miles on it already and averaging 14.5 mpg.

I have a bunch of modifications already completed and to do. I also have addressed a fair list of manufacturing oversights. I will start posting these individually soon, as many may find helpful.
