Cool Help me understand wheelbase

I posted this in another area but it must be a lonely place because no one has responded.

I want to know if anyone can tell me why ForestRiver lists the class c Sunseeker 3010 model as having a 220" wheelbase but Ford's web site says the E450 cutaway chassis at it's longest is 176". Can someone please explain the discrepancy to me? I have also noted that other coach builders do the same thing.

I was once told that once the Ford chassis is received by the manufacturer, it is then shipped to a frame shop to be stretched to the wheelbase that the manufacturer specifies then advertised by the manufacturer as the actual wheelbase . Sounded good to me??
