381RBOK - Black Tank Capacities?

Does anyone own this particular rig, and if so can anybody verify the size of the 2 black tanks? According to the brochure, it only shows 50 gal black. Doesn't seem correct being there are 2 full baths. Surely it's actually 50 for the front and ??? for the rear bath. Anybody have that info??

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

Anxiously awaiting the answer as well. I have one on order and can't imagine that small of blank tank on a big rig like this. I know there was separate "spouts", one on front/mid and one on the back so I am hoping its 50gal each.

FR brochure says 50 gal., but several dealers selling this model have 83 gal. on their spec sheet.

83 is a little better. Anything less than 40-50 on the master is a deal breaker to me.

I have a 43 gallon black tank on my Mirada and it lasts over a week for two of us. And by then, even with deoderant, it starts to smell and needs to be emptied. How long are you planning on dry camping with 83 gallons black? Gray is another issue. The bigger the better.

We don't dry camp, we full time. Big tanks are important since I don't like having to dump them that often. We know what works for us having owned several rigs. 5 people in a rig? 40-50 don't last long.
