What the heck do the letters mean???

I am totally perplexed by the letters in the model code. The numbers seem to express a direct relationship to the length of unit(?), but what do all the letters mean??? Ours, for example is a T12RBST - Is there somewhere to decipher the code>??

Each manufacturer have their own model codes, there is no industry standard to their meanings. RB generally means rear bath..
Mine mean "Bunk House LEgend"

Minr is a Vibe 268RKS...rear kitchen system. Why system? Who knows. Our home had a kitchen but not a kitchen system. That should be about as clear as mud.

T19QBHW (as in the camper we have) is Queen Bed High Wall (at least that is what I made the letters to mean).

Some models the number and letters mean something on others they mean nothing.

One guy at FR told me once that SOME of the numbers are the feet of the Frame, before the 'box' is put on it. Like mine is 36CKTS but it's 40' long. The 36 is the number of feet of the frame itself. CKTS is Center Kitchen, Three Slides.


But as Oak says, sometimes they mean about as much as Army Brigade designations!

The numbers can mean anything the manufacturers want. The letters usually mean what the manufacture thinks is significant.

My Flagstaff 832IKBS is 8' wide, 32' box, Island Kitchen Bedroom Slide.
Rockwood makes a 8329SS which is the same trailer except the numbers and letters doesn't translate to the design. Both Flagstaff (8529IKBS) and Rockwood (8299BS) make a 5th wheel with pretty much the same floorplan except for the wardrobe.

The T12RBST stands for; RB = Rear Bed, ST = Storage Trunk.

Our 29RKSS = Rear Kitchen, Super Slide.

The letters do have a meaning, it's just that FR doesn't publish the meanings anywhere.

T12 or A12 stands for a 12ft box. The smaller Forest River A-frames have Rockwood:

A122, A122ST (storage trunk), A122BH (bike hauler)
Flagstaff T12RBST (rear bed, storage trunk)

Forest River uses 21 to refer to the overall length (21ft) of the high wall models (which have 14ft boxes).

Rockwood A212HW, A213HW, A214HW (HW means High Wall)
Flagstaff T21TBHW (twin bed, high wall)

That seems to be the case. In our case they do seem to mean something. 232RBXL is a 23' box, the 2nd version (it was replaced by the 233RBXL, for 2019), rear bath, extra light (Cruise Lite).

Alternative Meanings

So my 30FQS designation could be “Front Queen &Slide”, but after one night on the flimsy factory mattress “(FFMS)” I took it to mean “Flimsy Queen S _ _ _ s and bought a comfortable mattress....... ��
