Kaschultz, we talked with Rod from RV World and he was fine. We had wanted to look at a 331 Mountaineer but there wasn't one at the show. Talked to Gregg from Quality RV and he mentioned they had one back at the dealership so we arranged to meet him there this morning. After looking at it and getting an idea on price, trade terms and timing my DW and I went for coffee and decided on the Mountaineer over the Columbus. Dropped frame for extra storage in pass through, huge pantry and linen closet accessable from both bedroom and bathroom plus the fact that Montana's have been around forever vs Columbus' 3 years were the deciding factors. Ended up phoning a dealer back home and told him we were at the RV show in Minneapolis ready to sign and we agreed on a pretty fair price, I think. Ended up about $4k higher after all taxes, trade value, etc. and we will end up with a local dealer for servicing and more flexibility on delivery date, etc.
Now I have to decide on hitch and pin box and get my drivers license upgraded. Then we are set to handle the retirement lifestyle we have been dreaming about.
