You should have a Ford date inside the engine campartment. Mine is a 2012 model but was build Oct 2011. If you had an early 2011 you may have a 75 gallon tank

The printout on the Ford paperwork for my chassis shows a 5.38 rear axel ratio and 75 gallon fuel tank.

That being said........there are a lot of rigs out there where the year of the chassis and the year of the motorhome are NOT the same. Manufacturers have the right to make changes................says so in the fineprint..........if you can find it.

When we purchased our used 2004, we asked for a Car Fax report. It provided details like when the chassis was manufactured (2002), when to coach was added (2003) and when it was first sold (2003), as well as the maintenance dates. The report exceeded our expectaions as far as the detailed info.

If you use this link and write in your VIN number you should get the Ford window sticker for your mbare chassis.
Replace the 1F000000000000 with your vin number

http://fordlabels.webview.biz/webvie...=1F00000000000

You will need to left mouse click to copy and paste the http and then change to your vin number. Hope you can figure it out how to change it.

I think anything 2011 and newer as the 80 gallon tank. My old 2009 Georgetown had 75 gallon tank.

Nope
We are talking when Ford build the chassis not when Forest River build the MH.
2011 Ford chassis still had the 75 gallon tank.
Seems after Jan 2012 builds at Ford it was 80 gallons.
My rig is a 2012 but Ford built it in Oct 2011 and it has a 75 gallon tank and not a 80.

Glad things are doing well. Same here, we just returned from 5000 mile trip out west with our new 337, have not had a single problem. It looks like we'll make it through 7000 miles and 12 months without a warranty issue

Glas to hear others are travbelling and having a good time.
I think we three have a great deal of miles under our belts.

Oh don'e forget to check rear sway bar bracket bolts.
I had mine checked at Ford and they replaced the brackets and bolts on both sides in the rear. (Under warrantee)
