Talking Surprise Early Delivery!

Our "W" showed up yesterday afternoon! We went by the dealer this morning and there she was all covered in bugs and "stuff" from the drive down. We do our PDI and paperwork Friday and plan to do our shakedown run early next week.

It's changed a little bit since those assembly line photos!

2016 Sunseeker MBS Drivers Side

2016 Sunseeker MBS Rear


2016 Sunseeker Passenger Side (Blurry Cell Phone Camera)



Now I just have to wait it out until Friday!

EDIT: BTW that is about nine weeks from order to delivery...

Pre-Delivery Inspection. You go through the entire unit with a tech and make sure everything works. What doesn't, or any damages, are noted and then covered under the warranty.

Yes, it even has a "Hellwig Equipped" sticker on the passenger side with the Model sticker....

Happy for you!

Looks like FR is hard at work. It looked like your unit was going to be a while longer. Nine weeks is pretty good. So far it has been over 10 weeks for us (originally estimated to be about 8 weeks) and still waiting for the phone to ring.

Tell me about the Helwig sway bar. Is this for the rear? New for 2016? If so, I may have to return the one I bought expecting to replace the OEM rear bar.

Enjoy your new MBS!

Don't return it just yet! Make sure your unit has the Hellwig sway bar.

The Hellwig is a larger diameter rear sway bar that was introduced as a running change to the MBS production line a few weeks ago. There are several threads in the Solera forum about it. Everything I've read here had convinced me that if we didn't get one from FR I'd buy one and install it.

I was really glad to see it on our unit from FR as I didn't want to have to deal with some overzealous warranty rep at my local M-B dealership if I'd installed it. Now I'll just give them Joshua's phone number if they ask me about it!

Well, our 2400R got here this morning and yes, it also has the Hellwig sway bar. Now I have an extra one. Anyway, we pick it up Friday and then off to the tire shop to get the steel valve stems installed.

Hopefully our "W" will be out of the shop tomorrow. The CEL turned out to be a bad DEF pump. Our local M-B Sprinter dealer has ordered one that may be here today. After it is installed our dealer can pick it up and we can retry the rest of the PDI. I'm glad we didn't have a tight scheduled trip as this issue has taken a week now...

Glad they found the problem so you can on with it. We are doing our PDI at 11:00 am tomorrow. I hope nothing pops up because we will be on the road Wednesday morning. I phoned the local Sprinter dealer today and had them check the chassis VIN against any recalls, TSBs or updates and it came back clean. He said the 2015s have been good so far. Good luck with your new MH!
