6 point leveling on Columbus

Is the 6 point leveling system on the Columbus 320RS electric or hydraulic? What is the opinion of this system from owners/users?

Thanks

I have the 4 point electric leveling system on my 320RS and love it. No problems at all.

Thanks for the replies. I am considering the Columbus 320RS with the 6 point system. However, I think I would be happier with the Electric System.

So what's the difference between the 4 and the 6 from a practical useage standpoint and what's the cost?
I had been talking with a Silverback dealer and their 6 point system is hydraulic and he said you could lift the entire trailer off the ground to change a tire. Also said it was a $6000. option. Too pricey for me.

6 point provides less movement…better stability. Hydraulic is more than capable of lifting the trailer off the ground. I would not suggest that with electric. The sales pitch is that hydraulic is longer lasting with no electric motors to burn out. I have seen the 6 point Level Up systems as a factory option for $3,700. My brother is traveling to PA, to an authorized retro fit Level Up shop (I think there are only 11 nationwide) to have a 6 point installed on his new Toy Hauler, for only $4,200. I would think there is a little fat built into your sales guy’s pricing. I have the 6 point Level Up on my Trilogy and wouldn’t go back. The electric landing gear, rear electric stabilizers and JT Strong Arms on my Columbus, didn’t come in stabilizing, not to mention the perfect, effortless leveling in 45 seconds.
