I believe 2006 was the first year for the 5R110 in the F53. Same for the 30-valve V-10.

Before I bought our 2006 F35 I called the local Ford dealer. Talked to the parts department and gave them the VIN number. He said that VIN number showed 3 valves per cylinder or 30 valves.

As mentioned earlier the change was made for the 2006 model chassis. Be aware that Ford didn't build an F53 chassis designated as a 2005 model. They extended the 2004 model year late, then skipped to the 2006 designation early.

Smart move to run the Ford vin vs. the builder vin. Another way to tell is tow/haul (2006 and up) vs. OD on/off.

Another Ford question..

I just thought of another question... do any of you have a 2006 or newer Class A V-10 between 32 to 36 feet.... what kind of gas mileage do you get...??

Be aware the chassis year and the motor home year often differ. My 2002 Pace Arrow rides on a 2001 chassis.

I had a 2011 36 foot Coachmen Mirada on a 22K F-53 chassis. After 13,000 miles and keeping an accurate fuel consumption log, I averaged 8.0 when not towing my 2008 Saturn Vue and 7.0 when I did tow. Since I towed most of the time, my overall mpg was 7.2. Your mileage may (read WILL) vary.

Are you using the tow haul frequently ? It can reduce your mileage by over 1 mpg.
