We took the plunge today....

We made the leap and bought our first 5er today. Bought the new Columbus F340RK. We enjoy cooking, especially on the weekend, when we have time to dedicate to creating great meals, so the large rear kitchen is perfect for us. After doing lots of research, the quality and price of this unit is incredible in comparison to it's competitors.

We can't wait for the camping season to begin! We seasonal camp and after a long work week, we love the convenience of being able to pull up to our site every Friday night, unlock the door, and start our weekend. Of course, we are a bit envious of those who get to hit the open road, but some day that dream may come true for us. If only that four letter word "work" didn't get in our way. So for now, we happily spend our weekends in the campground and have gotten to know some pretty nice people there too.

And the beauty of New Hampshire makes it all worth the 2 hour trip up from MA for us. We just love the mountains, lakes, and fresh air up there! Life is good!

Our previous fiver was a rear kitchen. DW really liked the counter space.
I'm sure you're going to enjoy your Columbus. It's a nice rig. We reall like ours.

Thanks to all of you for sharing your knowledge and expertise. You helped us make a decision we had been struggling with for two months. After lurking on your site, we learned so much. Our biggest concern was finding a manufacturer who truly backs their product, and after reading many reviews here I think we made the right decision. And now the long wait for the camping season begins....tick....tick....tick...
