How to measure length on 1989 Fleetwood

Hi,first post for an alder travel trailer and an older guy(56)!

I just got my first travel trailer,a 1989 Fleetwood Lynx Prowler.

I am trying to figure out the Model so I will know the length or visa versa.

I cant find anything that says model on the camper But I have the Vin# on both the title and the trailer.

I was trying to match up lengths on the Nada site to the weight it says on my camper Title.
It says unladen weight of 3600 BUT I dont think that is right because that weight according to Nada is for a 24 ft camper and when I measured mine it is 19 ft 9 inches from the longest part of the camper and even when I added the Length of the tongue (about 30 Inches more ) that only comes to about 22 ft.

How can I tell which model it is ?

I found this which tells me my camper is 22ft long,about the length of the camper plus the tongue.VIN decoder. How to read and decode your VIN number

BUT using the NADA specs
1989 Prowler Price, 1989 Prowler Values & 1989 Prowler Specs | NADAguides
It shows that the camper should weigh 3375 pounds.

Wonder why it says on the title that it weighs 3600 Unladen weight ?

The weight will be different from unit to unit. Just depend if it has
different options at the time of the build.

Such as a shower vs tub option. Or a external awning or upgraded
dinette area.
