I've got an 04 33V Adventurer. How can I tell if it is a W20 or W22?

Marco, look on the wall beside the drivers seat or in a closet and find the GVWR rating sticker. If the GVWR is 20,700 Lbs. you have a W-20. If the GVWR is 22,000 Lbs. you have a W-22
GVWR = Gross Vehicle Weight Rating

The Front and rear springs, brakes, and suspension are all the same on both the W-20 & the W-22.
The difference between the Two is the Wheel size and the Tire Load Rating. If you have the optional 15,000 Lb. rear axle on a W-22, you also have a heavier duty rear third member (Larger diameter Ring gear and bigger housing).

Enjoy your new rig! - Glenn

Glenn: Thanks for the easy to understand guidance on how to figure out what is what on our 33V. If the Condo on Wheels were parked out front I'd know. Sadly, we live in a community where I have to park it in a storage lot a couple miles from here. Good excuse to go and fire up the generator for a couple hours.

If your tire size is 19.5 you almost certainly have a W20. 22.5 tires = a W22.

I think there may have been a 22.5 option on a W20 with a slightly higher capacity rear axle but I have never seen one in person.

Hey ErWeGo, either way, screw the gas prices, get out on the road and have some fun.

Mutha - Glenn (ALCON.....) based on the GVWR of 20,700 Lbs. I must have a W-20. Thanks Guys! Yeap, hitting the road soon for a 3K+ trip from SC to OR and was just making sure my CCC was ok. Knowing if it is a 20 or 22 was important so thanks! We will be within the CGVW and CCC or things are going to be mailed. The movers will have already picked up our house hold goods for a door to door delivery in Oregon. What we really don't need for a month isn't getting into or staying in the RV; it is just that simple :-)

Yeah but he has a 2004. I pulled this from the 2004 Workhorse Spec sheet.

---------------------W20------W22
-------------------20700 LB--22000 LB
Rear Axle Ratio------Tire Size
5.38 (22.5" Wheels)---N/A----- S
4.88 (19.5" Wheels) --S--------N/A
4.78 (19.5" Wheels)---O--------O

The 4.78 rear end is the one that goes with the optional 14,500 lb Gross axle weight rating.
In 2004 they don't show the 22.5 tires available on the W20 unless it has the 14,500 option and even then it was an option for that option.

I have the 2004 spec sheet copied into a Word file if anyone wants it. Send me a PM and I will send it to you.
