Congrats on your new purchase. Do you already have the trailer or did you have to order it? I know what you mean about the slow arrival of the camping season. We already have 5 trips reserved and are just waiting for the six month point to make our August and September reservations. If all works out our shake down trip will be about 2 weeks after we get our trailer in March. We live near Cherry Creek Lake in the Denver area so thats where our first trip will be. Close enough to deal with any problems we may have and we don't even have to burn a full gallon of diesel.

Congratulations...and welcome to the Columbus family. You're going to love it!!!

We're headed out tomorrow for 7 days on the road in our Columbus 320RS - as we do each month. We're not full-timers, but quarter-timers - spending one week a month in ours.

We had to order Dan. Actually, the dealer won't be sending the order in until next week, which is good for us because we are still deciding on a few of the smaller things. The dealer has told us that they can't keep them in stock; they sell as fast as they come in and being a smaller dealership they don't have the overhead to keep a lot of stock in the lot. It feels good to hear how happy most of you are about your purchase. We know we've made the right decision now.

Have a wonderful launching when yours comes in. Our daughter lived in Aurora for a while and we were fortunate enough to visit several times and explore the area. What a beautiful place to be! I bet the parks there are breathtaking!

I did the same when I first brought my TT.

Congratulations on your new Columbus... the wait will be hard. I too go online almost everyday to look at photos... hopefully the wait for us will be over this week.

If you're still ordering options you should think about dual pane windows, strong arm stabilizers and the slide out awnings, among other things. There's been a lot of discussion here on this forum.
