Factory Warranty Issue #1

My 320 RS was built, early this year, 2013 model year (March). The factory began to add the brackets for the JTís in July, 2012. This allows for a very easy, simple install, requiring far less labor/cost. The warranty representative has agreed to pay for the labor (only) to install the JTís for a member of this Forum, that like mine does not have the brackets. My request for the same was refused. That creates a consistency issue and penalty for those of us who purchased early.

Wait a minute. We added more than 1 item and will continue to do so. We strive to improve. As an employee , I am better today than when I started. That same process needs to apply to the product or it will be like others that never get better.
Now, the missing info about added items is this---- the dealerships paid for these improvements .
Units prior were less money. Most fifth wheels are now trying to copy Columbus and their extensive list of standard features. We still offer more product for the dollar.

No doubt it's luxury. My girlfriends parents bought a new Heartland Elkridge. More expensive buy $10K and not as nice as a Columbus. BUT, it has a remote control for the autoleveler, slides, and awning. All at the touch of buttons on one rempote. I responded.........how come the landing gear legs aren't on a remote.

Go look up Trilogy. A $90K fith wheel.
Trilogy 5th wheel
Now granted this is a hell of a sweet rig. But is it twice as nice for the price compared to Columbus rigs?????? NO WAY!

What they MSRP for is not really relevant. With almost every option selected, MSRP on my Columbus was mid-80's. Of course I didn't pay that much.

MSRP on the Dynamax Trilogy is $124,198. They lowered the price to $80K. And guess what, it's a Forest River product.
