The website didn't show options?

Is always found the options on the websites to be rather confusing. They're generally NOT model-specific.

To the previous poster, see if you can get a build sheet from the dealer (or contact the Wildcat rep). That'll have the options listed that you can have. Next, for anything not listed- it doesn't hurt to ask the rep directly. I've since learned I could have bad MORE!

No need to contact a Wildcat rep. About Columbus by Palamino
Just call the Columbus plant and ask for sales help. 574-821-1505.
I'm sorry that many dealer salespeople can't always have the answers. Maybe it's due to so many brands or they just don't do good follow up.
They know the factories can get them answers if they call.
I hope this helps
Chris

Heh. Whoops- that's the downside from using the FRF app on my phone. 1) typos and 2) I don't get to see the previous posts while I write.

Sorry!

I would order the heat pump system and the 6 way level system. I called lipperd for a price to install the leveling system after market. I was quoted $4800.00 and it would take them a day to do. I was thinking of getting it done when we attend the rally, but that's to rich for my blood. The 6 point is much better then the 4 point system. Also it now has to be done at the factory. A dealer can not do it.

Ah ok. Don't have the backup camera but would love to have one as my 320 is much longer than my old TT. Do love the 4 way auto level though and wouldn't do without it.

If you would want a Columbus order form, I could get one for you.

Maybe I will get the current one and scan it......

Some of the options, such as the wireless camera, I have not seen yet. Chris Columbus would have more insight in that. There are several models of wireless cameras, but they don't define which one FR is using, or what is included.

Lift system question

We are looking at the 295 and 320 and are concerned about the 4 point system on the smaller Columbus. Is the auto lift system a hydraulic system? Also, a Forest River factory rep suggested that a 4 point lift system could bend or cause problems compared to the stronger 6 point system. Anyone using the 4 point noticing anything that might be a problem?
Chris Columbus, I'd appreciate your thoughts on the use of the 4 point system on the 295.

I have the 295 with the auto leveling system. Its run by electric motor not hydraulic. The 6 point system is not available on the 295 but is on the other Columbus models. I have not had any issues with my 4 point leveling system and I pay attention to any bends, creaks, squeaks, and pinch points. I have not noticed anything with the 4 point leveling system that causes alarm.
