Update.
Factory tour is postponed until next Tues. Our dealer called this morning with the news that the prototype wasn't complete. The good news is there will be 2 bunkhouse models to look at next week.
I was concerned that this would put our order back a week, but he assures me it won't. Guess I better learn to be patient - not my strong suit!

Any other advice as to options would be appreciated.Thanks - so enjoy all the info available on this forums. It is "real world"!
Ours also came with the Voyager package which is a "required option". While we had our Columbus out this past weekend it rained almost the entire time with some wind. The great thing (besides keeping things off of the slides) was, it also kept the rain from hitting directly on top of them...just above our head. MUCH QUIETER than our previous 5th wheel during the rain. And - they look nice too.

Felicia - glad you got your old world trays. I think they're just one more "touch of class" for a classy 5th wheel. You folks are probably like us - we lost our "guest bedroom" to all the shopping that went on for our new Columbus. The guest bedroom was pretty full of brown and blue (almost turquoise) rugs, blankets, dishes, etc. But...it looks great. Looking forward to a 10-day trip next month. The weekend was nice, but hopefully by then we can try out the A/C along with each and every little feature.

It's here!!

Salesman called me this morning to inform me that my 320RS arrived earlier today. Unfortunately, we can't make it over to pick it up until next Friday.
Should give them enough time to check it over, gas up the tanks, install the Max Air vent, wash & wax it, etc, etc, etc...
In the mean time, we're heading off to Willow Tree RV resort this weekend for our fare well voyage in our Sabre.

Enjoy your last trek with the Sabre amxpress - we had to wait almost a week to pick up ours, but it just made it sweeter once we stepped into it knowing it was OURS, not some demo model.

Noticed that you are going to be pulling "your" 320rs with a 3/4 ton. Would you do me a favor and let me know how well that truck handles that trailer when it is full. I am retiring for good this year and have been looking at both a Big Country and Columbus including the new 365. For either of those I am going to have to go the dually route which I'm not real thrilled about. With the 320rs at gross weight its close to the limit on a 3/4t 4X4 which is what I perfer. Anyhow if you could let me know your observations I would greatly appreciate it. Live just up the road from you by FTW.
