It has almost all the equipment that my Sierra 376BHOK has, only thing i may have it doesn't is insulated windows. My sale price was 48,000 the price before i made changes in furniture was 44,000 but it looked like they used 2 different trls. for the pics. it had 2 different wood tones.

We have a 2015 Columbus 325RL and really like it so far. The selling point for us was the outside kitchen and king bed. Its a nice, comfortable camper, and once the dealer fixed the issues we found after delivery, its been good.

Looking at buying this large Fiver! Any feedback?

We looked for a 325rl but couldn't find one for the right price.
The one we did find was the right price but the owner backed out.
The 325 was our first choice and the 320 a very close second.

Let me qualify: I don't know anything about the Columbus line. But, having been burned with my Forest River signature FW, may I suggest you at least look at other manufacturer's offerings before settling on the Columbus. Compare things like frames, running gear, quality of fixtures, cabinets, fabrics, etc. I have been in the market for a new FW and have noticed a lot of differences between brands.

That's what I thought for a while until actually walking and checking out their competition, such as Keystone and Heartland. They all use what appears to be the same components. LCI, BAC, Dometic, And a few others. Their residential furniture options always appear to be lazy boy and Lane. Their suspension is almost always either LCI or Dexter. Construction differences usually come down to the specific lines I'm each lineup, such as better materials from Cedar Creek and Mobile Suites. LUXE is a standout but still uses a few common lower quality components.

I absolutely love our Columbus. Have had it since 2012. I am ready to trade it in for XLR 415AMP, not because I don't like it, we just want a Toy Hauler, wife hates me towing a trailer behind the Columbus.
