New Columbus Model

Has anyone seen the new F340RK? (if you have, sorry, I have not seen it until now) I googled the model and looked at the pictures, it's a rear kitchen model. It's nice, but I like the 320 for us. Just an FYI.

I agree, I showed a couple our 320 and they loved it. I like the island that moves, great feature when you have a few folks inside

I have a 2009 chevy 2500HD gas and it does a very nice job. Now i have to say that i've only pulled twice since i got the Columbus because i got it so late in the year. We have a few long trips planned next summer so that will be the true test. I really think i'm going use a lot more fuel.

Towing the unit is actually very nice and felt better than my old fifth wheel.

We have a 2011 2500 and it hauls the 320RS without a problem!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE the combo We have haul on interstate and state highways. Also, through the "mountains" of northern Arkansas!! A bit of chucking but I believe you would get that with any FW without the trail air ride (wish we had gotten that)

there is no 340RKS. did you get the 320RS, which has the island option or a 340RK, which has no island option.

Actually , you are right RKS and it has that island thing or bar between the kitchen and living areas. And we ordered it without that.
