We picked up our new 320 RS today. We are really impressed with it. Towed it 100 miles home and it tows really nice (Ram 3500 SRW short bed). The technician spent about 3 hours with us showing all the features and showing that everything worked. We looked it over carefully and to be honest did not find anything that did not seem right. The doors, trim, workmanship, etc. seemed to be good. The tech said they spent about 8 hours last week going through it (said he just found a couple of things that needed to be addressed.) The disappointing thing is that by the time we added the stackable washer/dryer, the 6 point leveling system, and the strong arm stabilizers we added 800 pound to the weight above what is shown on the brochures. This is with the propane tanks fills, but no water and none of our camping supples. We weighed it at a CAT scale and all weights are within safety margins with the exception of being 420 pound over on Gross Vehicle Weight on tow vehicle. May be needing to upgrading to a dually. I am already sold on the 6 point leveling system it is so cool!!

joelek thanks for posting the photos of the stackable W/D in the Columbus. Would not have believed it had I not seen it in the photos. DW wants to revisit the issue, I am leaning towards the combination W/D. Thanks again!
