Okay, I get that the first 2 numbers in the model designation is the length of the rig, but what does the rest of it mean?

The first 2 numbers is approximately the length of the box, not the trailer..... Also, it's not real precise..... :rolleyes:

RS used to be Rear Slide.....
DS used to be dinette slide....
BH is typically bunk house.....

Be creative....... :)

okay, then ponder me this...

I have a 31 RQS...

It has a bunk house, dinette/couch slide...

So where dose the RQS come in?

Definately not trying to be argumentative, just trying to understand something that may not be a true pattern.

See, and that's where the creativity comes in!!! :D

If you look through any brands, you'll see patterns. 'S' is often slide, 'SS' can mean super slide (you know the nice 4' deep by 10'-15' long ones), 'R' is often rear, 'B' or 'BH' is typically bunks, 'K' is often kitchen, although in OB's it must have been 'Kangaroo' meaning toy hauler. :unsure:


Webeopelas,

Now tell me what the 'L' and 'TS' in our model stands for.

Ok, we have a 30 FRKS

Its 33.3 feet long, so I guess the 30 is close enough?

Its a fifth wheel so that works for the F, I guess

We have a rear kitchen so I'm guessing that's the RK.

We have a slide so that overs the S!

We have a stand alone Table and chairs so that's not listed?

Maybe the S is for Sydney Edition?

Maybe they don't know!!

Possible...... I was speculating the 'L' was Loooooong :rolleyes:

I'll go with the terrific storage though. I managed to stash 4 solar panels and the mounting frame in a storage door that DW didn't even remember existed..... :ph34r:

Plus that compartment still has plenty more room. I just have to figure out if there's anything else I can think of bringing with us... :rolleyes:

Yeah, our "33" is really 35' :rolleyes:
Some 5'er manufacturer has the number be the number of square feet of floorspace.
