We already know we want the good leveling system. I have also heard of some anti-sway equipment??

On the 2020 Winnebago View I recently bought I went with all you mentioned. If you plan to boondock/dry camp more than an occasional night, the extra capacity of the Lithium battery bank and the faster charge time is helpful. My View can standard with 200W solar and I had an additional 170W panel added. Again only needed if you plan to boondock.
I also got the FBP for both looks and durability.
I opted for the ďupgradedĒ diesel generator since the on board LP tank is small and I wanted option for longer run time. Also refilling diesel is easier than refilling LP tank. However with my solar, I have hardly used my generator. So Iím not sure if this expense was justified or not.
I also got the Dual pane Windows. I like them but some warn that over time they may scratch and craze. Time will tell I guess.
I had the HWH automatic levelers installed (and the standard electric stabilizers removed).
I had an Amp-L-Start device installed to charge the chassis batteries from my house battery bank via solar/shore/gen. Without the device, the chassis batteries are only charged via alternator and could discharge while the RV is being stored.
I have not found the need for suspension mods. The rear sway bar on the new Sprinter Chassis (2019) was upgraded and is almost as robust as the Hellwigs. If I decide to add something, it would be the Agile tuned Fox shocks on the rear to reduce rocking when crossing uneven surfaces.
