Welcome to the FRF family.....

The 365 is a gorgeous model, just a little too big for us. We have the 320RS on order.


Congratulations!!

I believe most luxery RV owners are mom and pop retired situation with no kids and only occasional visitors that stay overnight. That is why the 320RS is sooooo popular. However, 365BH bunkhouse is a sweet setup if you have a famiily situation. lots of beds, two bathrooms, extra "kitchen" outside, etc. I'll be looking at a 340RK rear kitchen tomorrow at the RV show in Minneapolis. NO I'm not buying a 2nd Columbus rig just enjoying the additional models Columbus offers.

The 365 is a rear living room, much like the 320, but has a kitchen slide instead of the floating island.

It's great that you will be receiving your Columbus soon. We are awaiting our 295RL, hopefully this week. We didn't want anything over 35' but I have to say that I loved all of the floorplans...

Good luck...

365RL is a model I have not seen yet. I am used to the 365BH only. Nice that Columbus keeps adding new models. The brand new toy hauler looks really sweet compared to other brands I have seen!

The bunk model is a 385BH.....the 365RL is one of the original floorplans.

They have 3 toyhaulers as well. Pretty much the same interiors, with different size garages.

Have you seen the front living room yet? 370FL...

We have had our 365RL since last November. We love it. We are currently at a RV park a little south of Tampa. We don,t pull it so it will be are winter home for the future for now. We have had basically no issues with it. It is a great floor plan for two people. Hope you enjoy yours.

Nope have not seen the FL model - front living room. Saw a RK - rear kitchen yesterday at the Mpls RV show. Neet setup if you like that layout. Sales guy comment was cupboard contents bounce more than typicall during trailering as the rear of an RV pivots up and down the most. This may cause your glasses, dishes, etc. to break, shift, yada yada.

Columbus 365

Looks like there are a lot of owners with the same idea...go for the best We just picked up ours yesterday. Wish the wind would die down and get warmer so I can get started with moving in. Only one problem, what happens if all of us with the same model camp in the same campground?? Could get interesting if we can't remember our campsite number, hehehe. Not that any of us has a memory problem

I was sold on the 32RL till I noticed it does not have the drop frame like the 36.5 RL. So much less understorage space. Wonder why they constructed coach so differently?
Had hoped to trade from my 2008 Cardina for the 32RLl but cannot live with less storage. Such a nice 5th wheel. 40' is just too big for site access
