oh, you mean the bar/countertop that extends out, when the slide is put out.

i'm really interested in the Columbus 340RK, since the DW only likes rear or front kitchen models. please post your impressions when you get it.

the closest Columbus dealer is 30 miles away but they'll be getting the 340RK in soon, so we'll actually be able to look at it.

What kind of vehicle? I went with the Reese Elite 18K and the 5th airbourne sidewinder. Haven't tried it yet, but it should do well. I did tons of research before making my decision, and may be overkill, but I shouldn't have any issues with turning.

this thread is about the new 340RK model.

there are tons of other threads on the 320RS, in the Columbus sub-forum. lots of new owners there to help you.

I think Big Daddy's RV website is the one where I saw pictures.

The pictures are actually from the Louisville RV Vendor Show the other week, but maybe they got the rigs since they are close.

I swear by my B&W Companion hitch. It was more expensive than others out there, but it's quality is amazing and there's virtually zero-chance of high-hitching and not knowing it.
