Columbus Compass 381FL

We went to the Dallas, TX rv show today, thinking about trading our 2014 Palomino Sabre 35QSIK for the Columbas Compass 381FL, decided we don't like the bunk and prefer more living space. We welcome your thoughts on this unit.

Thank you,

Lol we had 32bhok Sabre and decided the bunkhouse didn't fit our needs any longer as well, we now have a 320rs Columbus

We got the 381FL from the show last year. We have been living in it since November and thinking about going full time. We had a Mobile Suite before this and like the more room we have in this unit. We have decided that it only sleeps 2. Maybe more for special guests. We surely don't need any bunks.

We got this unit about a month ago. Only made 1 trip in it so far but we love it. We upgraded from a TT so this was a huge step. We are so far very impressed.

Columbus Compass 381FL

We purchased our Columbus 381FL basically at the Fort Worth 2016 RV show in early January. We had a plan to go full time and live small in a couple of years but fell in Love with this home and decided to go ahead and do it now. In two months we sold all of possessions and house and started living full time in her on 3/12/16. We love the freedom and the lifestyle and cannot tell you how happy we are with our decision and our Columbus, we highly recommend both.
