Looking to buy a Columbus 320rs

We are new to RV's and are looking to buy a Columbus 320RS. Can anybody give us some feedback regarding this RV? Any problems, issues etc we need to be aware of? Also has anybody any experience buying from RV Wholesalers? Is it worth going thru them? How about getting anything fixed when buying from RV Wholesalers? Good or bad, we appreciate any comments. Thanks a lot.

Hey there, welcome to the forum. If you look at previous posts involving the 320RS, you will find a lot of information. Overall, you will find a lot of satisfied people. They love their 320 and the factory is very helpful. I can't speak from experience yet since we are awaiting ours, but most of what I have read is very positive.

Good luck, and ask away if you want.

Dave

there are tons of posts on the 320RS and RVW. you'll find what you're looking for by doing a search, way quicker than waiting for someone to post answers.

in fact, there's currently a long RVW thread with posts from the co-owner of the company.

I hope you are not too disappointed. You have to go to St. Louis or Kansas City to get the full effect. You'll be lucky if you see one Columbus. I will be heading to St. Louis in the am.

We ordered our 320 RS on Nov. 17 and are going Monday to AC Nelsen RV World in Omaha to pick it up. We are quite excited. We love the floor plan and when researching the unit it appears that most people are quite happy with it. We ordered with the stackable washer/dryer, 6 point leveling system, the strong arm stabilizer package, the 2nd ac, and the Trail Air tri-glide pin box. We're planning a trip to Alaska this summer.

The first year 320RS rigs were problamatic which is normal for new models of RV, cars, motorcycle, planes, etc. You will read about these items on this forum. The 2013 and on models of course were better as teething problems with a new model were fixed, updated, etc. Warranty fixes take weeks to months to get done, but one by one they do get done.

Your challenge is to find a USED Columbus RV anywere on the internet for sale. If there are no used ones for sale, chances are owners are loving their rig. Columbus has released more models now and their brand is growing. The price point of these rigs is a great value and the are still selling well from what I read here.

Lots of your good or bad experance will be how good or bad your dealer setup your RV. Find a dealer that has been around for a LONG TIME. I bought mine from Cheyenne also. They have been around since the 60's. They survided 40+ years in the RV business. Ask yourself how could an RV dealer possibly do that. Not many do.
