I believer the underbelly is finished better for one thing in the regular GD. That means limited problems driving in the rain and more water tight. Also the S model has electric leveling while the regular model has automatic hydraulic leveling.

We own a Grand Design Solitude, the new "S" Class is the same wide body coach except the interior amenities are cut below regular Solitudes to lower the price point.

Had a chance to look at various GD's at a local dealer. They had only one Solitude S. It was pretty apparent to me that the S was the tweener between Reflection and Solitude. Still very nice. Few things the regular Solitude had that the S doesn't, including Generator prep and the quality just seemed higher in the regular solitude
I also checked out Forest River Cardinals and Cedar Creeks, and IMHO they do not hold a candle to the GD line. The Solitude for sure is head and shoulders above in my opinion.

You can get the generator prep in the S class, we’re looking at one now. I’ve wanted a Solitude for a long time but there are things on the S I like much better. Love the wainscotting and kitchen chairs. The S has a closet at the front door and a large bathroom. We are comparing the Solitude 310GK and the S 2930.

Bummer is I like some of the S class floor plans better. Love the double vanity bathroom that the 3350 RL has. Full length mirror without the medicine cabinet above the vanity makes the bathroom feel very spacious.

I will resurrect this topic because I came here looking for the same information. After visiting here I found this that gives a simple explanation of the S-class:

I came back and registered to share. I hope it helps the OP and/or others.

Until GD finds a rear cap for their higher end line, they will remain of the sales lot in my book.

I heard that Solitude S uses electric leveling and regular Solitude uses hydraulic. There are other differences too I'm sure.

I had a rear fiberglass cap on my 2011 Cardinal, don't miss it at all on my 2018 Grand Design Solitude. I really like the wide body construction, which is not available on Montana, Cardinal, Cedar Creek, wide body makes a huge difference, especially with opposing slides like I have on my 375RES.
