RV acronyms

Is there a list of descriptions of what RV manufactures use as acronyms.
Is it something described by the RV industry, or is each manufacture on there own for designition. Some of the lettering kind of makes sense. For example K probably means Kitchen. B, might mean Bunk, or Bath. In Looking on line at RV's it sure would be helpful if I understood their meaning.
Thanks in advance.....Bob

Maybe somebody can find a list for us. What gets me is something that is pretty consistent is RV model numbers. A model 34 is 36' long - a model 36 is 38' long and a model 38 is 40' long, etc. Is this a practical joke?

Our 5er is called a 41. It is actually 43'10". The 41 is from the pin to the rear bumper.

Just like with cars, the model naming is up to the manufacturer. I think they spin a wheel with a miscellaneous mix of numbers & letters & wherever the tab stops, that's what it gets branded. My model is a 36Z, it's 37'3" long & I have no clue what the Z stands for.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Exclamation

Yeah, those letters seem just as stupid as the numbers. For example, the Winnebago Forza comes in models 34T, 36G, 38R. There is no 34S or 34U or anything else, so the T does not help identify it. The Forza comes in only those 3 models, that's it. And the lengths are 35'10", 37'10" and 39'10". So the numbers and letters seem to mean nothing.

My 5vr is '32.5UKTG'

32.5-----could be inside measurement from inside wall of front closet to inside wall of rear cap but it measures 33" 10" from king pin to rear ladder

UKTG...... U shaped Kitchen Triple Glide (3 slideouts)

Some model numbers are hold overs from early mfg. days. Some try to be descriptive of the 'features' (RK-rear kitchen, RB-rear bath, XL-Lite etc.)
and then there are motorhomes...they have their own alphabet soup

100% agree...
Looking at a 28NHGTS comparing it to a 28HGTS3 or was that a 28HBBST...Wasn't that a 26BHTT...What did we just look at??? now what was the length of that RV?

O the salesman said 28 means 28'. No, 28 can mean anything. Could be a 34' unit...Length to me is hitch to bumper. Very confusing when trying to do your comparisons between models of the same brand and different brands.

Keep it simple like 266 ES for a 26' 6'' hybrid RV trailer. My 26' 6" trailer is called a 232ES.(don't know why)

Three numbers to identify length (feet and inches) followed by no more that two letters. Plain and simple.

Sorry, that's not possible with today's technology. Maybe in the future...
