Wink Taking delivery today of Columbus 320RS

We have been looking at them for a few months. Finally decided to do it. Fell in love with the floor plan like everyone else did. We are trading our Jayco Eagle 29RLTS fifth wheel. Our maiden voyage will begin tomorrow morning. We have been reading the forum while doing our research on it. Looking forward to joining all the others who have a Columbus.

Get ready for LOTS of smiles...get ready for being amazed...get ready for an occasional giggle!!!

We've had our 320RS for 3 months and spent 20 nights so far...another 7 coming up in a couple of weeks...and we are still just as happy (or more so) as our first night spent in it.

Welcome to the forum. Keep us posted on your travels and discoveries.

I see you're from Missouri - there are other Columbus owners up there...Jeff and Felicia (Earth Station) in Waynesville, which appears to be a couple of hours away from you. They're active on these forums, plus she created a Facebook page for Columbus owners: https://www.facebook.com/ColumbusOwners

We bought our 320RS from Campers Inn in Mocksville, NC.
What dealer in Marion are you going to?

We purchased through Tom Johnson's in Marion. They had this model at the Bristol Race this spring. We had been looking for several months for just the right unit. BAM! there it was. Worked a great deal with them on trading 2006 Jayco bunkhouse model. It's time for Dad and Mom to have a fifth wheel for us.

Just got back from dealer in Marion checking out our new 320RS. All we can say is WOW. Picking up unit Friday morning and bringing her home. Never thought it would be this nice. Hope to see more of the Columbus group out on the road.

We just spent the last 11 days in our Columbus for our maiden trip!! All I can say is wow!! We have the 6 way leveling system which makes leveling a snap. We are home for a week and we will be heading out again. We had a couple small issues so we took it to the dealer tonight for work tomorrow. I have read about the 2nd a/c being loud that is true.

A/C a little loud

If your bedroom A/C is a bit louder than you think is acceptable, please contact your dealer.





they can get with Dometic the supplier as it seems maybe they had some get out that were louder
We strive to make Columbus better everyday.

Ours is very loud and the vibration in the hallway is terrible. Our dealer got with Dometic and they are sending grommets to add and if that does not work then they have another solution to solve it. We will pick up ours hopefully tomorrow (had it for 7 weeks now) since we leave for our second trip in it and can't wait. Will let you know if it worked.
