There are the usual weight and rating terms, which are not at all specific to our trailers, mostly not even specific to trailers, but relevant to towing:
GVW = Gross Vehicle Weight (total weight of vehicle including contents)
GVWR = Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (maximum value of GVW allowed)
GTW = Gross Trailer Weight (GVW, specifically for a trailer, normally just use GVW)
GTWR = Gross Trailer Weight Rating (maximum value of GTW allowed)
GAW = Gross Axle Weight (total weight carried by an axle; one value for each axle)
GAWR = Gross Axle Weight Rating (maximum value of GAW allowed)
GCW = Gross Combination Weight (total weight of tow vehicle, trailer, and contents of both)
GCWR = Gross Combination Weight Rating (maximum value of GCW allowed)

Perhaps I one point I belonged in that list, but I'll bow out of the list for now.

If anyone takes this on and wants hints on maintaining a list published in the forum, feel free to PM or e-mail me for suggestions on methods.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

I would say just "A couch or sofa that turns into a bunk bed"... it need not be a two-level bunk arrangement, although there often is some sort of upper bunk over a gaucho.

And guess what, there are even "rv resorts" that have just "rustic" sites.


Can't assume a campground is just a campground!
For sure. Most campgrounds I have been in have a choice of what services you want. Not many RV Parks offer no service sites, but I did come across one last year near Zion.

If you want to stray to the king of acronyms, the government
SNAFU
IRS
DCASR
FUBAR
DOD
DOE
and the list can go on and on, stopped since these have nothing to do with camping.......except maybe snafu

Assembly of acronyms from initial letters of words means any given acronym will likely be found in multiple contexts, for instance ATF. Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms and automatic transmission fluid. It appears to me that the convenience of this sort of abbreviation or shorthand is offset by the difficulties of understanding created for those who are not familiar with a particular example. BICBW. We probably should honor Gilda's request by sticking to trailerspeak and eschew thmbtxt.
