Took my 'new to us' 2014 Columbus 340RK home on Saturday and set it up in a campground for the next couple of months while working in my current location. So far we have determined we have an excellent dealer and we did a really good PDI. Not many things were found wrong, but the dealer fixed everything well. Installed a queen sleep number bed that we had in storage and spent 2 nights so far and very happy with our 5'r.

I may do the same next spring - have a free storage spot for the winter... Was wondering, how far apart did you put the "rafter" poles? Also, if using a tarp as the roof, Do you think there is any benefit to add rope between the "rafter" poles? Additionally, do you think it would be worth putting a rope above the tarp to keep it from billowing in the wind?

Winterized

Sadly, she is winterized now, although we will still use it all winter long. So we will be carrying water, using disposable plated, bowls... and using the shower house/rest room, we will still be camping!
