Way to go. We did the same about a week ago. We ordered a 365RL, should be here in about 6-7 weeks. I noticed that you are pulling with a F250 6.7. Did you do anything special to it. I put on air bags. I hope that is all I need.
We had a 24 foot Coachman, so this will be a real change. Ha!

at the show there was 2 dealers that had a 320 in stock all most the same equipment. one was cream with theater seats and wood floor. the other was gray with rockers wood floor. Both had a king bed. my wanted the queen bed and the tile floor i wanted the cream out side.

As for the truck I am putting a PullRight 16K SupperSlide with removable rails in the bed. I will try it on a short trip if need be I will put in air bags.

You are going to love your Columbus. Pulls great with a 3/4 ton. You shouldn't ever need a slider.

That makes sense to us. My DW and I are less than normal size. We use to be normal size, we stayed the same, but now we are less than normal sized and do not like the king bed either. It wastes too much space.

We also like the night stands you get with the queen bed.

We've had our 320RS since March of 2012. We've been out a dozen times. After the initial bugs were repaired, it's been great. Just returned from a 3 day weekend near Myrtle Beach. It performed flawlessly. Love the shower. Love the space. Love the recliners and TV. Temperature dropped into the high 30's, furnace worked great. Looking forward to spending more time this season.
You'll enjoy yours, too.

We are looking at the Columbus 320RS too. Would it be a good FT unit? Where could we find the best deal?

I have an early production unit. Most were assembly line concerns. They have since corrected these and revamped many of the online processes. They were very receptive to my comments and suggestions. I agree with Tugboat's post, I bought ours at Campers Inn and they were great to deal with.
