Incorrect tank capacity listed in brochure

Its official the tank capacities listed in the Forest River Sandpiper brochure for the 320RL are incorrect. As I said in a prior post (quoted below), during the PDI we were told that the gray water capacity was less that listed in the brochure. We were finally able to get the camper out and I filled the gray till the sink was backing up. Then I measure the amount of discharge and got just short of 60 gallons from the gray (galley) tank.

While we are still a little disappointed by the incorrect info at least now we know for sure what we have. What I do find interesting is that the Forest River web page is still listing the gray water capacity for the 320RL as 108 gallons when they know it is incorrect.

“We picked up our new 2013 320RL yesterday and during the PDI we discovered that the information in the Forest River brochure and on the web site were incorrect for the gray water storage capacity. Listed was 54 black and 108 gray while actual is 54 for both black and gray. The dealer talked to the regional rep who talked to the engineers at Forest River to verify that the information listed was incorrect. This was a very tense time since these capacities were a factor in our final decision for the type of camping we do. The GM for the dealer and Forest River talked several times to come up with a resolution acceptable to us. I think the dealer was caught off guard by all this also and really tried to represent our interest.”

We reached what we felt was fair to us. We were given a portable tank of our choice, they installed a handle inside for the DW and under camper storage bins for us. They also gave us a couple of small items form the camper store. While this may not be suitable to all it worked for us. We really like the features of the camper and it tows great. My mileage did not even drop from our previous 5th wheel which was smaller.

I'm pretty sure there is only one grey water tank at 54 gallons. But either way one or two the total capacity from the shower and kitchen sink is 54 gallons.

I think my post got moved from the General Discussion to F40 whatever that is? Not sure why.

Mr. Moderator,

The 320RL is not a Toy Hauler. It is a standard 5th wheel. My apologies for originally posting in the incorrect forum.

Hey Jim,
I moved the thread to the 5W-Sandpiper forum.
