dryer vent for Columbus 320 RS

We have the Columbus 320 RS on order. I know it has the hookups for washer and dryer but am wondering about an outside vent. I can't recall from the one that we looked at. Can any owners help me out. We are thinking we wouild prefer a dryer that is vented outside but really hate the thought of cutting a hole into the wall. Any help? What brand of washer/dryer is being used. Thanks for any input.

You will have to drill for the vent (Not that difficult from the location it is in). They are using the splendide washer/dryers.

Keep in mind the "hole" is for 3" hose. It connects to a unpainted louvered door, multiflap or single flap with hood. Go on Camping World site to see details of the exhaust vent. The ventless washer has no exits but uses a couple of xtra gallons of water per load. Its suggested mount is directly outside the W/D on the side wall.

Well almost, I paid for W/D prep but got only pipe connections and drain piping, no vent.

We got the washer dryer with factory installation so the vent was installed and works well.

You didn't pay for w/d prep, that is a standard....they all have them.


If you get the optional w/d units installed, they come mounted and vented.

Unless it's a Georgetown, then listed as option.....I purchased the 7100XC no vent, thanks.

Yup, sorry, I assumed you had a Columbus, since this thread is under the Palomino heading, and was asked about a Columbus...

Their is two types of washer/fryer combos.
Vented and non-vented types.
Which do you have or plan to buy?
