Smile Build sheet for the chassis on a Ford Transit?

We've put an offer in on a 2020 Gemini 23TW. It will be our first motorhome in 25 years of RV'ing. I am wondering if there is a build sheet or "Monroney sticker" for the chassis that will tell us what it was equipped with/ordered with from Ford?

There are a huge number of options available, even for a cutaway chassis and so I am wondering what this rig has.

An example is alternator size. There are three I think.
The Parking Brake "type" is another.

Thanks!

My Thor (a 2017 Freedom Elite) didnít include one. My Winnebago and my Newmar did. If you donít get one I expect you could get it from Ford with the VIN.

The one I got with my current machine raises more questions than it answers though so thereís that. Mine is an F53 chassis but the sticker says itís a pin F550. Also says itís 208 inch wheelbase but itís actually only 200. Go figure...

Pete:

Note the last item in the Functional list, Unique Motorhome Specs. Could mean anything.

How do you know that belongs to your chassis? I don't see a VIN on it. Is it at the bottom cut off?

The VIN is at the bottom under the bar code. And I looked it up on a VIN decoder. I also compared the sticker VIN number with the Ford tag under the hood and the number encoded in the OBD. The wheelbase discrepancy is especially confusing. I even went out and measured mine at 200 inches. Itís puzzling.
