If he has the ability to find and diagnose the issues, why on earth would he put it back together to take to a dealer, during camping season, let them sit on it for three months and maybe they will fix ½ of what was wrong. Not to mention he will need to open it back up just to make sure it was fixed properly…

You are right

you are so right, he should do what he is doing. Lay down and cry like a baby to any site that will listen to him. For Gods sake don't do something constructive about it! He has already admitted that he does not go camping!

I applaud his objective well documented issues posts. You really can’t argue with what he is finding and likely that all 320RS’ are built the same. His posts benefit the current owners and hopefully will cause Columbus/Palomino enough heartburn to take a serious look at quality.

Not really

He has not really fixed anything yet, just taking it apart and complaining. I think he is with a competitive company trying to put Forest River in a bad light. How do we know he did not set this all up. I have worked on mine and have not found these problems. Of course I did not take off my door handle, duh. I am done with this guy!

I have never seen anyone take so much apart to check quality; but I agree this guy found many QC issues with his 'C'. I would hate to have half that many issues with ours. I would love to see several improvements, such as real insulation in the front cap; which Palomino hasn't changed after several yrs of complaints. The guy may have a lemon but he does loose credibility with distorting the dissatisfied 'C' owners & name calling. I would be frustrated with those issues also, but calling anyone a liar that says they're satisfied with theirs is not needed. He needs to fix it himself or work with the dealer/factory instead of crying about it on the internet for days. RV's have more than their share of lemons & I feel sorry for the next person who gets this one, unless it has a lot of fixes.

OP complained about not having a battery cover on the clock? Every wall clock in my house has the same mechanical piece on the back with space to pop in a battery without having a cover over it. I think many people would have taken him seriously if he wasn't so fixated on minutiae like that.

His entire thread sounds too prepared, almost scripted to me. He sounds like an RV building insider to me, whether competition or a disgruntled employee or ex-employee. There is nothing organic about his process.

I'm in the Facebook group he was removed from. He was rude. He was condescending. He was belligerent. He was contradictive. And he was thoroughly dismissive of any and all offers and suggestions of action and recourse. He also grossly inflated the ratio of happy C owners. A few discussed their major issues, but the overwhelming majority expressed their satisfaction with this brand along with their regrets regarding his apparent misfortune. He wanted nothing to do with any of that, which he made clear in the way he conducted himself in the group, which resulted in him being removed from the group. It's ironic and amusing he found his dismissal so noteworthy considering he wasn't interested in what anyone had to offer.

It now looks as if the mold has migrated inside the rv to the living quarters. I believe that it is black mold on the flooring. At least in places it seems to have the same circular pattern. Now it's in the bathroom sink drain. I figured it would end up inside but for whatever reason I never though of the sinks. I am waiting to hear back from a mold Testing facility. They asked me why I wanted it tested if I knew I had it. I figure the type can make a world of difference when it finally comes down to a lawsuit.

The unit is now going back to the factory. As I said before the reason I was doing the work is that I did not want the same bozo that built it fixing it but not really an option when the floor needs replaced and who knows what else from mold damage.

Since the factory will not answer my question on if they are certified to do mold removal and what kind of warranty that their works comes with it sounds like that are not certified nor is there any warranty. I would not put it past them to send a guy to Lowe's for some juice to spray on the mold and button it back up.

I liked how the factory rep had to probe and ask what I did for a living.

I don't care about the Facebook group. You k ow it's funny I offered to sell my csmper and a good price because all you columbus lovers know that the factory is going to make this rv right as rain. I don't have anybody beating my door down though.

I have to say that only a fool would buy an rv,any rv if there us a chance you could get one like I did. If you're happy with your rv maybe you got a good one or maybe you are just ignorant.

Some are suggesting that this rv is my fault for not researching, finding a reputable dealer or that it's karma.



You guys handle your problems your way and I will handle mine my way.

Who the hell thinks they are camping in an $80,000 unit on wheels? I don't sleep in my truck and think I am camping.

I find your logic to shall we say rv logic. You don't think I am doing something constructive about my problem? Telling people not to make the same mistake I did is my number one priority. My message is clear never buy an rv.

No You will not find me thinking I am camping in a mold filled house on wheels. I still don't have a buyer lined up for this quality made in America product. I wonder why?
