We pull a 2015 Columbus 340rk with a 2500 GMC, have towed about 1000 miles with no issues. Plan to add airbags to help level truck. Have a pull rite 15 k super glide hitch and a trailair tri-glide. This combo is smooth with very little bucking when going over bridges no clunking etc.

We have a 2013 32 RCTS that we pull with Ram 2500 Hemi and a Curt 16K slider hitch.(never needed the slide feature yet) We just finished the 3rd camping season and is still working out great for us. No problem pulling. We have the roll-around island and like the ability to move it where it is needed.

Kesey, We tow a 2015 320 with a Ram 2500 4x4 CC sb. I did add Firestone air bags & have never needed to use the slider hitch. I do highly recommend the Tri-Glide pin option on the 320. It removes the chucking I had on our previous 5er's pin. It depends on your usage but we do long trips & the pin's air bag & shock make a huge difference on the rough roads. At this point I can't justify the expense of a new hitch but if I were buying a new, I would look at some with a shock &/or airbag.

We tow our 320 with a 2500 Ram cc sb without a glider hitch. Added the air bags to level up the tv. Love the residential refrigerator, 6 point leveling, stabilizers and rear bike rack. This one is a keeper.

We have a 2014 320RS purchased in June of 2013 and have been pleased with it. Thus far we have traveled with it approximately 7000 miles. Leaving for Texas later this week. My tv is a 2002 Ford Super Duty with a 7.3 diesel and a short (6 and 3/4 ft.) box. I do have a slider hitch but haven't had a need to use it. Here are some figures on actual scale weights taken when fully loaded. Trailer wt. 13,700 Pin wt. 2,840 Weight on rear axles of trailer 10,720.
Options that we added when ordering the trailer are: Bedroom AC, Thermal Pane Windows, JT stabilizer arms, Bike Rack, Fireplace, Upgrade mattress. We enjoy the unit and spend about 6 months of the year staying in it.
There have been some minor issues with the RV but was handled by the dealership without a problem.
Hope that this helps with making your decision if you haven't already done so.

Purchased our Columbus 2013 and TV is a 2015 Silverado 3500 HD Diesel 4x4. Crew cab and loaded. No problem with pin weight with this model. The Duramax is a dream. Power, acceleration and mileage are as good as it gets. Already gave 30k miles on the truck with multiple trips to the Florida Keys.

We pull our Columbus 320RS with a Ford F250, added air bags with a Husky articulating head hitch (Husky 16K-W Articulating Head Hitch with Uprights - Husky 31666 - 5th Wheel Hitches - Camping World).

We are in our camper about 1/3 of the time up to this point, but that will likely increase since my retirement 2 months ago. We absolutely love ours. We're coming up on 3 years next March as Columbus owners.

We have the Sabre 33ckts and love it. We looked abd looked but always came back to the 33ckts. Like mentioned above, the island is stationary and has a double sink, otherwise the layout is simular to the 320RS. Ours is white while most Columbus I have seen if not all have been tan. I like the traditional white, less chance of becomming "dated". Remember when grey was "hot"? Either camper will be a good choice you. Good luck.
