Considering buying 325RL this week

I am seriously considering buying a 2014 Columbus 325RL within the next 10 days. Anything I should be aware or concerned about. It is from CW in Spokane Wa. It does have the 6pt way auto leveling system. Does Palomino use Hydraulic or Electrical system. Any issues or concerns? The price from what I researched seems reasonable and the craftsmanship and appearance is appealing. It's still a huge expense so any help would be appreciated.

I have '15 325rl and we love it. It is very comfortable and fuctional. We have had some minor issues that are quality control but are being taken care of by the dealer. It has six point leveling which is electric. The outside kitchen is great and I constructed a manifold to run the stove and a grill.

Take your time when doing your walk through. Take pictures or videos. Ask questions during the process. Ask for the Forest River 2nd year warranty. It doubles the factory warranty and is available from & through Forest River at a very reasonable cost.
Enjoy your new Columbus.
