Greetings from Georgia!

Hi All,
I am rather jumping the gun here as my husband and I are not quite ready to buy the 5th wheel. With two in college and a senior we have at least a year but we REALLY want the Columbus - either 365RL or 320RS. We have camped regularly all our lives, tent, popup and currently a Heartland trailer but I'd like to get e feel for FR products and really know what we are going into when we do get the 5th Wheel. I know these forums provide great information and support and I'd love to hear from any owners of a Columbus as to what they love about their unit and things to look out for.

Hello from So Cal! You should be able to get a good idea of what to expect from Fr 5th wheels in this link.

We live in north Georgia and purchased a Prime Time Crusader 330MKS last year. We love it and have had no issues at all. Where do you like to camp in Georgia?

We come from North Georgia too - Roswell and our preference is to camp on the state parks, the favorite being Vogel, having said that I also love ST George Island SP.

Welcome to the forum from a southerly neighbor! The one thing I wished someone had told me BEFORE looking at 5th wheel rigs - get the biggest tow vehicle you can afford. That way you don't limit yourself as to what you can purchase. In my case, I bought a RAM 1500 Hemi and couldn't tow more than 10K so we always had to be very, very weight conscious even with the Flagstaff Classic Ultra-Lite.... A RAM 3500 DRW fixed all that for us, allowed us to move up to a Cedar Creek 38FL, and never really worry about the weight.....
