    Grand Design model numbers vs length

    Does anyone know what the model numbers stand for on Grand Designs' RV's? I ask because my model is a reflection 323bhs but the length listed is as 37' 4". Perhaps 323 square feet inside? Just curious. Thanks

    Jamey, I believe the model numbers indicate the length of interior wall front to back, usually excluding the area of the RV that rides over the bed of the truck.

    You usually add 4 or 5 feet to the number to get the actual rig length.

    I believe on the model number of RVs is loosely tied to the length from front landing gear to rear bumper.

    I have yet to crack the code, I would like to hear a positive answer on this.

    Re: Grand Design model numbers vs length

    There really isn't an industry standard on this.

    The Solitude 305 is 36 ft long, the 369RL is 39 ft, and the 379FL is 43 ft.

    Most brands just use a model number as that, a model number. An Outback TT is a 260FL, and is 31 ft long. A 316BHS Sprinter is 35 1/2 ft from ball to bumper.....

    Most other mfgs use the model number as the "box" size, with 3-4 added to that for the length. For GD it seems that you have to add 4,5, or 6 to the model number to get the length. INNOVATOR RV uses the best system. A model 2124 means the box is 21' and the overall is 24'. Geez, how simple is that?!! In the words of ex-Viking football pro Cris Carter....C'MON MAN!!!

    Guess it didn't work out so well for them...they filed bankruptcy in September.

    I was led to believe it’s square footage. Our old titanium’s were easy. The pin was 5’ back from the nose so our toyhauler was a 36/41.

    Your math doesn't work with a travel trailer. How does the 315RLTS work out to 37'-11"? No part of my trailer rides over the bed of the truck.
