Columbus 385BH for us!

So we finally made the trip down to take a look at the Columbus line. I'm happy to say it they met all our expectations! We decided the 385bh was the model we wanted to go with so now it's just a matter of working out all the details. I'm fairly certain we will have to factory order it since we are pretty set on the options we want. We're already getting excited!

So it looks like our local dealer is way off on pricing. Any body have any insight or major complaints about RV Whosalers?

Online looks like msrp runs a low of 69k - 77k. So I would guess you would be looking at a good price being between 47k - 53 k depending on what kind of extras you are looking for.

Sure is. Coming straight from a pop up just makes it seem that much larger to.

That's about the same for us! We went from a pop-up to our bunkhouse fifth wheel this year. We have 40 nights in our Sabre and are super pleased.

Fire931,

We fulltime in out 385BH with 3kids and a dog, so if you have any questions before the unit arrives let me know. Also, we bought ours from the dealer for 60K, sticker was 77,500.

I'm taking the whole thing apart this weekend, so I'll be able to tell you where all the innards are, and what line goes where.

- Sam.

Awesome! We're really excited about it and I think we did pretty well on the price especially since we got a pretty loaded up unit. We won't be full timing but it will be the wife and I, our 8 year old and a golden retriever at the very least when we go.

We looked at a Columbus 385BH today and really liked the layout and the luxury look. We had been looking at a toyhauler(Cyclone) just for the extra living space. I would love anyone's input on the quality of the 385BH and how well it has served you. Thanks.
