Thomas Nomenclature

So I'm looking at the Thomas MVP-EF line and noticed 2 models, the 1418S and the 1118S. I've determined the first 2 numbers indicate the amount of sections or windows. What does the 18S refer to?

The 1418S refers to (I believe) the flat nose, where the 1118S refers to the conventional bus. I went on the Thomas website and they were almost helpful, but I did some digging and this is as close as I could figure.

If there's another explanation I'm all ears, er, eyes.....

I'm not looking at any 1118s, they are too short, 11 window. I need a 14 window.
