So, FunkyJunk, what did you do? I love the looks, layout, and idea of the Columbus. But these forum issues are scaring me.

WannaBcamping, We are still negotiating for the 320RS. I thought I knew what color I wanted but was told by the salesman that that color is now granite. And, one dealer sent me an order sheet with 5 colors on it and none were granite or pewter! :-) We know we want the grey exterior.
We are told the company is making them with a screen door, not the door with window (or maybe as well as the door with window?). The fireplace is listed in the brochure and online as standard, but the company rep is saying that the fireplace is an option. Just getting antsy....

Wow we just negotiated our deal August 31 and at that time pewter was on the list of 4 colours, never heard of granite. We were also not told about the door changing. We also paid extra for the fireplace option.
Maybe Chris Columbus can weigh in on this and let us know if there are changes happening with the Columbus line.
I certainly want to know as we may have ordered our unit but we are taking delivery until April 2013 and we were told it wasn't being ordered til a couple months before, so I guess it will officially be ordered around beginning of February 2013.

Dropped it of at the dealer a week and a half ago and not a word. I guess I'll call Monday and find out if they've even looked at it. They have a lot of work to do.

Question

We are in a holding pattern on buying a 320 until we hear how you have made out. I must say that talking to the factory rep at the hershey show made us seem confident of the product.

IF the rep didn't he wouldn't be the factory rep. They get paid to tell you what you want to here. I met the factory rep in Mpls at the winter 2011 RV show. Just another sales guy to me. You would think he would have introduced me to a sales person from RV World - the only dealer in MN. Did that happen......NOPE.

@joelek you're sounding kinda bitter. Are you unhappy with your rig, or just the sales aspect?

Love my 320RS just spent the last weekend in it before winterizing and moving to a permanant spot within the RV resort I am at.

The sales aspect..........yes the Columbus brand is only carried by a few dealers. And I found it absolutely crazy that the factory rep at the RV show did not introduce me to the dealer sales rep. It's like they were simply introducing the 320RS to the public at a tradeshow but they were not ready to sell them yet. This was winter 2011 in MN by the way. In summer I went and checked the Columbus rig out again at the one and only dealer in MN.

The dealer woudn't budge on their price and said in fact, their is a price increase of a few grand for the 2013 model year. So we shook hands, parted ways and not even a follow up call from dealer. It tells me they did not need the additional business as the Columbus was selling well for them and in fact they were.

So I drove 400 miles and bought mine from the dealer next door - Iowa. Saved close to $4K for a roadtrip AND they sold me a 2013 for the same price as their 2012 models sold for.
