New Line-Palomino Columbus 5th wheel

Looked at a new line of 5th wheels by Palomino, the Columbus. Nice looking rig. One problem, though. No information on them! Only one model is out, their F320-RS. Can't find specs on the other 3 models, even from the factory.
The dealer I'm working with can't get me specs on them either. A little frustrating for someone interested in them.

Haven't seen the other thread, but here is the Palomino site that has the information on the Columbus.

Palomino RV - Manufacturer of Quaility RVs since 1968

It is still missing the dimension information though.

Seems like this is the case for most new lines of RV's. The preliminary stuff goes out first, and the details come in later. That they even have the floorplans posted I think is pretty good. These look like some big, possibly full-time type units. It will be interesting to see the detailed specs when they have them.

I would really like the specs on their 365RL, unfortunately, they don't start production until the first week of February so specs aren't available, yet.
What is the hitch weight on your 320RS?
