Advice on F 22 chassis

Need your expert advice on ford chassis. What's the difference between the F53 and F22 ford chassis? Know the F22 is higher weight ratings but is the F22 'much' better? Better ride handling ? Comparing Georgetown to thor

F-22 is an airplane, F-53 is the Ford chassis.

According to the Georgetown's features page: Georgetown XL Class A Motorhomes by Forest River RV it also uses the F-53 chassis (first line under "Standards").

The GT3 also uses the F-53.

and the GT5 also uses the F-53.

I have seen some build sheets that refer to chassis as F-22 whick I think means a 22,000 GVWR or GCWR of the F-53 chassis. I think it was Forrest River or Jayco.

We were looking to go a little bigger but need chassis cargo capacity to be high enough.

You guys are right but example is thor miramar says Ford 22 chassis. Not f53. Is it then higher weight limits and with better componets?

Interesting, now I'm curious what "Ford 22-Series W/Aluminum Wheels" means!?

The specs page link I posted above does mention:
Quote:
22.5 Tires with Aluminum Wheels
I wonder if that line on the dealer sales sheet is just talking about the wheels.
