Hi Josh, I have a 24W 2016 Solera. I have the Hellwig Sway Bar from factory already. Would I be able to add the cab over safety net to mine? Also would like to add the Zamp solar option. Do you have the part #'s and instructions on how you installed that? Also what is the new tail light set-up?

So help me here with branding. I have a 2015 Solera 24R. The exterior and interior pictures of the new Sunseeker 2400W posted above are very similar to my motorhome. So, Solera is now Sunseeker? Is Solera branded by any other names? Thanks.

Joshua,


Do you know when you will start taking orders for 2017 units? Are there additional changes beyond the ones listed above for 2017? Thanks.

The Solera name has been retired by FR. The same MBS is now sold as a Forester, a Isata 3 and a Sunseeker. They are basically the same vehicles with trim and color varying by brand. Remember how GM and Ford sold the same basic vehicle as multiple brands with different trim? The same concept applies here. The Sunseeker is the "Chevy", the Forester is the "Buick" and the Isata 3 is the Cadillac. As I understand it your Solera is closest to a Forester in trim level.

Versions of the MBS are also available from Coachman but they vary much more than the three Forest River versions in floor plans and trim. Saturns if you're going to stay with the GM analogy I reckon...

My wife and I ordered a 2017 2041R MBS on Saturday, 3/5. It should arrive in May is what we were told. We can't wait! There was no increase in price.

It depends on when your unit was built. When we made the Cab over net an option we started putting a steel backer in the wall by the bunk curtain. You can check to see if it is there by using a magnet. Your easiest set up is to go with an aftermarket solar panel system. We tie ours into our Battery control center while online at the factory.


Solera is now Sunseeker MBS and Forester MBS. In trim packages, Solera and Sunseeker are going to be similar.


If we are comparing Apples to cars, Sunseeker would compare to a Chevy, while Forester and Isata 3 could be compared to a GMC or Cadillac.


We used to have four different product lines, Sunseeker, Forester, Lexington, and Solera. We consolidated those lines to expand our product throughout the country. If we have a Sunseeker or Forester Dealer they are now able to order a Class C, a GTS or an MBS.

Hey Josh, I heard that you're starting to add back front gutter spouts. Is that true? And if so is it possible to order some that match ordered paint scheme?

Thanks
