There are so many. Vendor specific. No definable rhyme or reason.

Many owners abbreviate the model name. That is most often the cryptic code you see on forums. It means something to owners of that specific brand/ but nothing to most others. For instance for Newmar folks DSDP means Dutch Star Diesel Pusher. Then after the model name comes the mfg specific floor plan code, often with the length of the rig as a part of it. My coach could be abbreviated UA 40e, with 40 being the length and "e" a specific 40' floor plan. Some mfg'er floor plans are multiple letters like PDQ, etc. And then some folks make up their own abbreviations for whatever they want to add to the confusion ...some are more interested in obfuscating and bloviating than they are in communicating!!

And then to add to the confusion the "length" designation in the model number is not the actual length of the unit. My "length" designation in the model number is 33 whereas the actual length is 34'-7".

In the past, for Monaco and HR, the PBT designated a private bath and triple slides. We had a 01 HR 38PBT. In the other, not sure what the d means but would assume the Q is for quad slide and the P for private something. Each manufacturer has their own way of designating floorplans and length. Hope this may help. Happy trails Bert

All the vendors use the smae method. It is usuely two to three executives stand with ther backs to a large board with the alphabet printed on it. They then each take turns throwing a dart over ther shoulder. And there you have it.
Even if that's not true it seems to match how the letters get assigned.

Can't remember what the P is but PDQ is double slide Queen bed. Also keep in mind they changed meanings over the years as well and that makes it tuff. I think the P stands for passenger entry on the new coaches T stands for triple slides Q stands for quad slides. B usually stands for Bunkhouse Old coaches Q was Queen bed T was Twin beds. The New Vacationer has Double bath triple slide or single bath triple slide.

The letters can mean something or nothing, depends on the manufacturer. Same for the numbers in the name. Ours is a 40X...X means nothing and actual length is 41'.

For an explanation of the Monaco/HR designations search the Monaco forum. Lots of information on the designations.

I do know that the first letter designates the Bath (P=private) and the last character designates slides (D=dual T=Triple, Q=Quad). Middle character designates various features. On my unit (PLQ) The L designates Lounge.

Who knows what the numbers/letters stand for. Our 36Z is 37'3" & it's anybody's guess what the "Z" means.
