    Hi all, I have an autotrail Cheyenne 634u and am wondering if anyone knows what the 634 means? The U I am presuming means U shaped lounge.
    Many thanks in advance Brett

    Is it the first two numbers relating to the length and the last number relating to the berths?

    So if is just length then why in the autotrail brochure are the lengths as follows?
    630lb = 6.5m
    634l = 6.5m
    632 = 6.5m
    634u = 6.5m
    635 = 6.5m
    660 = 7.05m
    696g = 7.28m
    5 models all with the same length but different model numbers surely means that those numbers mean something else but length?

    Ask Autotrail.

    It's funny though because Teddybard a member on here has an Autotrail Tw@t.

    It's a unique van though in fairness.

    There was me thinking this was a friendly site!
    Just a 'no' as an answer is just somewhat rude in my book especially as I've posted in the beginners forum!

    It's a great site and very friendly. You asked a straight forward question and got a straight forward and complete answer from a member. Job done!

    Quality.....most educated people would have put 'no' and a reason why.
    However I,m not here to argue everyone's entitled to their opinion I certainly wouldn't have answered a newbie with a straight no......each to their own.

    I honestly dont think the number has much relevance..
    Mine is an Apache 700.... Yes it's over 7mtr but not exactly 7mtr, no it's not called a 730 cos it's 7.3mtr..
    Yes 6xx are shorter than 7xx.. "u" maybe for the layout ?? U lounge..
    As those daft Americans keep saying.. "go figure" (whatever that means) :)
