Although I haven't done the math I'm also told that the 351 in my model number is square feet.

I updated the list today. However, I'm not sure the "L" in LKTS means "Lovely" because every kitchen is "lovely" to its owner. I looked at the floor plan for this model and noticed that it appears to have an "L" shaped kitchen island. For the definitive answer, though, I'm going to ask Jayco what the "L" stands for.

Can't find what you're looking on JOF? Try:Jayco Owners Forum Custom Google Search
