New owners/old campers
Just bought a Columbus 320RS, so we're new Columbus owners, but this is our fifth RV.
We traded in our Crossroads Cruiser 325CK. No existing problems with it, we just wanted something a bit more upscale. No bad words at all for Crossroads. We had one minor problem (wet electrical) and one major problem (failed A/C) with the trailer in the three years we owned it, and both issues were covered promptly under warranty. And the dealer we bought the trailer from, Pleasureland RV in St. Cloud, Minn., was always super to deal with.
But, as with the purchase of a car, motorcycle or house, there were things that had us saying "next time we buy one of these..." occasionally. All of them were just creature comfort-related complaints, but the list got long enough eventually that we decided it was time to trade.
We bought our first trailer, a used 1978 Trailblazer 18-footer, in the early 1980s, then moved up to a used 24-foot Empire with 4 bunk beds in the rear as our family grew to include three kids. But those old heavy trailers always left us with the question of whether the car was towing the trailer or the trailer was towing the car.
So we bought an enormous Jayco popup camper in the late 1980s and traveled with that behind a conversion van til about 2000, when the kids started to leave the nest.
We didn't have a trailer from 2000 til we bought the Cruiser in 2012.
We're looking forward to getting out in the Columbus, once a few problems are rectified and we're able to bring it home.

Employment was great, but retirement is better
