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.
