So what have we learned?
The 2015 brochure and spec on the Rockwood website says water capacity 36 gallons.
Your sticker says 249 lbs, which is 30 gallons. If the water capacity is 36 gallons then the sticker is incorrect, as 36 gallons would weigh 300 lbs.
Or........the 2015 brochure / website is wrong and the tank is actually 24 gallons, that along with the 6 gallons in the water heater = 249lbs.
The 2016 brochure, which is not even available on the Rockwood website, does say water capacity 43 gallons. No 2016 specs are available on the Rockwood website. That could mean 43 gallon tank and 6 gallons in the water heater or 409 lbs, or 37 gallon tank and 6 gallon water heater which is 360 lbs. Yet your 2016 has a sticker that indicates 30 gallons by weight?
Then we need to consider the verbage on brochure and website.

So what we have learned is..........................NOTHING or close to it.
The only way you will know the actual water capacity of your 2016 would be to either measure it out using water or measure the tank geometry, unless the tank is marked or stamped.
I have no clue what will be in my 2016 Roo which is ordered. I would assume at some point they will be using a larger tank than in a 2015 but who the hell knows? If that's the case they are probably going to use up any stock of the smaller tanks first. I guess I need to pester the hell out of the salesman and dealer about it tomorrow.
This is like going to the Chevy dealer and buying a truck but you're not allowed to know what motor you get until you sign on the line, then you pop the hood and see if you got the 4.3, 5.3, or 6.2
