That's exactly what I ended up doing, as I paced off the outside while salesman was talking and the numbers didn't add up. I went to my truck and came back with a tape measure and told him, and he looked at me like a deer in the headlights!

I measured my 338 rlts and its 39 feet from bumper to hitch ball. I remember when the model numbers were close to the length.

My J-feather brochure for 2007 lists my 25Z as having an exterior length of 27'10" and that matches the tape measure.
I think the model number is often, but not always the length of the box. When you think about it. Basing the model name on the usable length makes some sense.

HELP!!! Do Jayco TT's measurements include the tongue?

I don't think common sense enters in to it. More marketing now days.

My X19H is listed at 20'8". Looks about right according to the tape measure.

Our Jayco 330RLTS is 33ft of box and 3 ft for the hitch and about 6 in for the bumper for a total of 36.5 ft.

Our Sunny Brook has a designation or 240 something and the box is 22 ft with the hitch and bumper adding another 3.5 ft. for a total of 25.5 ft.

Have someone measure it for you.

Don't forget any rear accessories like a ladder or spare tire.
