,,,,,,,So, when you book a campsite, do you list your trailer's length as 27' or 30'?
=====
I've found it best to give them the TOTAL length of your unit, regardless of what it's listed as. Our 242 was listed as a 24ft., but actual length from spare tire to hitch ball was 29ft. Sometimes when going to a unfamiliar campground, they will put you in a site according to the size you give them. Only had it happen once, but it was a real tight site.

While the number & letter combinations can sometimes help, other times you'll find codes like 'EXP X213'.

We decided long ago that the combinations were invented by the marketing department to force prospective buyers to...
1) read the brochures marketing prints and
2) return to the dealer to try to make sense of the notes they made.

Within the different models, the codes are usually somewhat consistent. Between various models they can be close, but there can be significant differences.
One example (and I'm sure there are MANY others) the White Hawk 27 RLDS and the Jay Flight 27RLS. The codes are very similar, but if you read the literature you'll find major differences.

I'd like to think this helped, but...
'We are as confused as ever, but at a higher level about more important things.' may sum it up.

When we were looking at our 27.5 RLTS, the dealer said the "5" meant it was a 5th wheel, not half a foot. And RLTS was Rear-Living-Triple-Slide. The overall length of it is 30' 10". I was questioning the length, as a 24' TT was as long as I could get into the driveway. This one fits almost in the same space as it is only 1ft. 10" longer than the TT.

Thanks everyone. It's making much more sense to me. I hate it when my brain boggles!

And even if you crack the code some will never make sense.............
