Yes, youtube has been great to watch while waiting for our new unit to arrive. Well it's 4 weeks today that we ordered the new 320RS. Does anyone have the slide toppers? what do you feel about the quality and operation ?

We have the slide toppers. Work great and no problems Nice not to have to get up on a ladder to sweep off the leaves.

We've ordered the slide toppers but just wondering from those that have them, do they flap in the wind like the awning? There were many times when we were camping in Myrtle beach that we had to bring the awning in from worry about wind damage. Anyone worry about that with their slide toppers?

I haven't seen them flapping much at all. The trailer is sitting in our front yard right now with the slides out. We've had some wicked winds in the past two weeks and they've barely moved. They are really close to the top of the slide and there is not much play in them (they are tight). The regular awning isn't as snug a fit.

I see you had a Wildcat. I'm trading my Wildcat 2007 29BHBP it's been a great unit. We first came across the Columbus at the Cleveland RV show last Jan. and finaly order one ! I was waiting to look at the new Wildcats but i'm really not interested in white again.

We liked our wildcat but it wasn't comfortable to sit and watch TV in the evening. also never liked the split bathroom. it was a great unit but we have decided we just want more comfort.

We traded in a 2011 Wildcat 313RE for the Columbus 320RS. Much more comfortable, more living area, large shower, 4 way level up and no tankless water heater!

Yes, especially in the warmer climates. Water coming into the camper was already warm which caused the tankless water heater to limit out-then no hot water at all. Whoever heard of getting your hot water only from the hot water side of the faucet? If you turned on the cold water at all, the heater would limit out. Well, enough complaining. I now have a 10 gallon Suburban dsi/electric unit.
