there is no standard to model numbers. some have 4 numbers.
So when a CG asks for your length, what do you give them? Box length or overall length?

Campgrounds are only interested in overall length to make sure your camper will fit in the site.

Thanks! So next question: When Joe Blow asks "what size" your camper is, what figure do you use? Box length or overall?

Same thing. What's the obsession with the numbers?

I have a Sabre 36QBOK-7. QBOK = quad bunks, outdoor kitchen. There is also a TBOK which is triple bunk, outdoor kitchen.

No idea what the 36 or the -7 mean since it's 42' long.

No obsession. Not trying to impress anyone. Just trying to be accurate and determine what the standard way is. Sheesh...

The 7 is for 7000 pound axles

Not sure about the 36....
