FR3 Chassis Question

This may seem like a really odd question, but everything I had read on the 2014 FR3 30DS lists the chassis as a Ford F53 chassis, but going through the stacks of papers that came with my coach, is the paperwork from Ford to Forest River. What's odd is that this paperwork shows the chassis as being a Ford F550. Does anyone know what the correlation is between the F53 and the F550?

Thank You Muchly! That was quite informative. It definitely sounds like the chassis is the F53 even though the VIN paperwork says F550.

What's really odd is I decided to plug in my VIN on the government recall website and it tells me to contact Ford because it's not a valid VIN number. I even scanned it off the paperwork barcode to be sure I wasn't transposing numbers.
