Hello from White Lake, Michigan.

We traded in our 1997 Winnebago Adventurer on a 2013 Columbus 320rs. We don't have a truck yet, so we had it delivered to a park where we are seasonal. I retired from the FAA last December and now working for the FAA as a contractor. The wife and I both work out of the RV all summer long. Once I can draw full Social Security, we plan on spending the winters in Florida and the summers in beautiful Michigan.

Welcome to the forums! Congrats on your new 2013 Columbus 320rs too! How was it working out of the trailer?

It was great Terier. The only problem was the internet is pretty slow, and on the busy weekends, it's almost impossible to get on and get anything done. When I run into that, I just go down to the lake and play for awhile. Life is to short to let the small stuff get you down.

New Columbus 365 on order

We have a 365RL on order from RV Wholesalers in Ohio. We also don't have a truck right now, so were having it delivered to a campground in Florida for this winter and than we'll see if we want to spring for a truck or use it for the winter months. Have you had any issues with your 320. The Columbus series sure are beautiful. Take care and good luck, we just got back from a trip to Mackinaw a couple weeks ago.

WRROST,

I've had a couple of minor issues. The cable for the galley grey water became unattached after the first use and the digital readout on the fireplace disappeared. Both were easy fixes so I took care of them myself. Saved the expense of a service call.

I can't wait to start heading down to Florida for the winter. Still a few years to go. We will be going down to Satellite Beach for a couple of weeks starting the second week of October.

Welcome! We live in Grand Rapids but are from Muskegon. This is our first year with a RV but isn't it nice living around so many great places to camp. We just spent 10 days at the Muskegon Channel State Park. I give it a 10 out of 10.
Where did you buy your Columbus?

We bought are Columbus 365rl from RV Wholesalers in Ohio, they were several thousand less than local dealers. They will deliver it to Florida for me for about
$1,700. For now that's cheaper than a truck.
