I traded in my 2009 Flagstaff 831fkbss (really disapointed in it due to multiple delamination issues from the first 6 months we had it) for a new Columbus 320 RS with the bonded windows and ALL windows open, the slide windows open up and down while all others open out from the bottom. A lot of thought went into the Columbus line and I looked around at several 5th wheels for several months before buying the Columbus. Looking forward to our first trip with the new unit!

2016 Dodge Ram Dually 4X4 Quad cab LB 3500 Cummins 6.7L TD / 2013 Columbus 320rs. Camped 50 days in 2015, 74 days in 2016, 92 days in 2017.

Cornfed78, we have the 8528rsws that you inquired about. We have the platinum package and the windows that you marked in red do not open. In addition, the few windows that do open only crank out about 3 inches max. We were taken with the floor plan and, incorrectly, assumed the windows would be like those in our previous rv. Our mistake. But so far it's not so bad. We have the ceiling fan in the living area and Maxairr fan in bath that provides enough fresh air.
