You have to turn your head a bit to watch tv from the theatre seating.
Our previous fiver was a rear kitchen with the same seating arrangement as the Columbus. We used two Euro recliners and was able to angle them to make TV viewing comfortable. I would do the same if I was to get a Columbus rear kitchen fiver. Theatre seating works well only when they're positioned directly across from the TV.

I totally agree, this was at the top of the list for Kim on the 320. Too many 5er's, especially ones with rear living space, have limited viewing in front of you. I am looking forward to the theatre seating in this one.

yea, i don't see the advantage of theater seating, if you have to crank your head to the side to watch, such as the new 340RK.
Chris Columbus said that you could have a swingarm added to pull the tv out so that it turned toward you.
it seems to me that it should come with such a thing, if the theater seats are on the side of the tv, instead of directly in front of.
i would choose regular recliners that could be moved, if we decided to get the 340RK.

The toy hauler will hit production line sometime in Jan. We just introduced another layout at our Big Dealer product show. It was a hot Hit. Think Columbus interior beauty with a garage .

Yep, we changed our order from the 3200 to the 3400 for the extra 2 feet in the garage....

Can't wait to actually see one.

I agree the tv should already have a swing arm added(Chris Columbus).

playing it inside is easy if you don't have your iPhone cased (mine is in a lifeproof & DH is in otterbox) there is a sit in connection on the surround sound. I have since bought a sound bar and just connect it to that with a wire. Easier!!! haven't hooked it up to the new radio/outside speakers yet. Mr Z..
