Maybe "Happy Ending" or "High Explosives"?

The model names/letters are a big mystery that only the manufacturer's marketing department knows the meaning of.

There are more than a few forum topics discussing the meanings of them without any satisfactory resolution.

From us?
It's probably started out as just some internal designation, that they used to differentiate between the models...


.... and it got WAY out of hand!

What would you like it to stand for?


And welcome to our little slice of madness!

Some RV letters have real meanings, Like:

BH = Bunk House
RK = Rear Kitchen
RB = Rear Bath
DS = Dual Slide

Who knows what/if there is a real RV meaning to HE.

On mine, the "FE" stands for Freedom Elite, which is emblazoned across the front of the cap.

It should stand for Hall Entry since it likely has a midship entry and the FE usually represents Front Entry since the unit is shorter than the mid entry units. On occasion you may also see an RE which typically stands for .. yes... Rear Entry.

Some models BH is bath and a half and BB is bunk beds. My TS is triple slide, I believe.

After looking at all the Freedom Elite floorplans, and their associated FE/HE designations, I've deducted that there's no correlation to anything that explains the moniker as such. I therefor believe they pull letters from a hat and choose via a friendly game of paper/rock/scissors.

HE?

Hardware store Enabled. Because you're gonna spend time there looking for stuff to fix stuff. :-)

My serious guess would be H=Overhead Bunk, E=extension or 1 slide.

"HE"?
This is obviously referring to gender...

They'd never do that. If we had a clue to their identities: an effective lynch mob could be formed...
