Columbus rolling island

I have a 2014 320RS with the rolling island. I put the front wheels on rubber coasters and just tighten the hold down straps. The island never moves.

Thanks, everybody, for your responses. I think this should be sufficient to alleviate DW's apprehension regarding the island.

One other question, if I may: I've always liked the exterior colors of the Columbus, with the cream and dark brown. They now have an exterior option that includes gray and white. Have not seen one, and am hoping that they have one on display at the STL RV show later this month. Has anybody seen or bought one, and what are your thoughts? If you bought it in that color, why?

Thanks

Thanks in advance.

We have ad zero problems with ours. The slides, when retracted, keep it in place. I do place a blanket over it during travel to make sure no wood-on-wood contact is made.

We love the flexibility of the moveable island. No wasted space for dinette, which is better used for our 2 leather lazy boys!

I like the fact that the island can be put anywhere!

There is a Columbus RV forum on Facebook with a wealth of information.
