My Columbus 320 RS is the first 5th wheel I have owned, so I can't compare it with a 96" wide. However, I installed a hardwired rear view camera on my trailer just to be able to see what was going on behind me. On straight roads I have to do a small, safe wiggle of my TV(2012 F-250) to get the trailer to move over so I can see what is behind me. That is fine for most folks and I could live without one, but I feel much better having a 9" color monitor showing what is coming up behind me. I have the 4 level jack system. Love the convenience of the auto system. The 6 level jack system may eleminate some of the trailer movement. However, I plan to install the steady safe stabilization system. Get a fair amount of shaking when walking and moving around. There again, it dosen't bother some folks. Don't know about the heat pump. I had one in a class A and it did o.k. A small electric heater works good and is a lot cheaper. We really like our Coulmbus and I feel sure you will as well.
