Model Number Meanings

Can anyone explain all the "acronyms" (letters and numbers) in the model numbers for the Rockwoods?
For example: we have a 2902WS, I think the 29 is floor space (living space) length, but what is the "02". And what is "WS".
Searched the FR website and this forum and could not find the answer. That doesn't mean it's not there....LOL
This doesn't apply to only the Rockwoods, but all FR products. Is there a standard?

Your post required some thought up until the last question and then it got easy. Ans: No, there is no standard. If you see "BH" in a model number, it's PROBABLY a bunk house. I wouldn't bet a cold biscuit on the interpretation of 80% of model designations.

Agree "BH" is probably Bunk House.
So is WS "with slide"?
Reason I'm asking is when answering a post I'm often confused as to what RV they have. I've been "copying" the Mod# and then "googling" it to see what exactly they have.

There is no "standard" in the RV Industry, when it comes to model numbers.

I will say that the letters have a more consistent meaning than the numbers.
Here are a few probable general definitions:

BH-bunkhouse
WS- wardrobe slide
QB- quad bunk
RS- rear slide
FK- front kitchen
RK- rear kitchen
RB- rear bath
FL- front living
RL- rear living

Sounds right!
How is the access of all features in a 2' wide trailer when parked at a rest area without putting out the West Slide?

The Mini Lites seem to have the 1st digits meaning the nominal length, while the second two digits seem to simply be the floor plan number (i.e, 01, 02, 03). There are some gaps as they've stopped making some (like my 2503). Then there's an "S" if it has a slide.

But of course, there's the 2304KS (Kitchen Slide) which seems to be the exception that proves the rule. (Especially because my 2503S should have been called a 2503KS because it's basically a stretched 2403KS).
