We were admiring a Premier 36REQS in the site next to us yesterday. The fellow had just bought it in Bozeman and would live in it for extended periods on different job sites. He was explaining the RE indicated rear entertainment and said his salesman told him and his wife that the QS meant it had a queen sofa! My DW suggested it just might refer to the four slides hanging off it. The lights came on and we all had a good laugh.

Our 351RLTS, in 38 1/2' long. Rear Living, Triple Slide . I have been told the 351 was sq. ft.

But I think they just have a box full of letters and numbers. Someone throws them on the floor and someone else pick them up. That is the designation

Thanks to everyone. Makes me feel better that I'm not going crazy. Well maybe I am, but not for this reason. Think my wife and I will kind of make this a road trip game. Figure out the Jayco model we saw at the gas station or campground.

LOL, sometimes those salesman don't know their product and just make it up as they go!

Lord help them if they ever said, "I don't know".

Norty1, I usually will run, at least mentally, when I discover I know more about the product than the salesman. We just bought a car from a guy who corrected me when I made a wrong statement on an SUV we had been shopping for some time. Too often the salesmen haven't sold the car or boat or trailer much longer than you've been shopping for it.

For everyone's info, I posted the following quote that I received on Jan 28, 2013 from Cressida Burkus, Jayco Customer Service Specialist: "The model number is not the length it is just a number that Jayco comes up with to differentiate all of our many models we have here at Jayco".

Perhaps this will put to rest the discussions of what the model numbers might mean, why they don't correspond to length, and why some larger numbers are actually shorter trailers.

Thanks for clarifying that info. It would make sense to have some continuity in naming and numbering by different manufacturers but in the real world it is just another marketing tool like drug makers use to sell a product.

Main thing is to know that the numbers can not be used to allow the customer to compare different models.

Our Jayco is a Jayfeather 28U. No hints in the lettering there but the cabin is close to 28 feet.
