Everywhere I checked had nothing. However, I found the below link.

Probably will have to take it to the scales to see, but at least this partially gives you a general ballpark weight....

Recreational Vehicle Blue Book - 1991 LAYTON FUNTIME TRAVEL TRAILERS Configurations


Everything that length (26'7") is around 4300lbs for each model number. I would be really surprised if your unit was drastically different...

What does your owners manual list as towing capacity, GCWR? The dry weight is a useless figure, unless you plan to to camping without taking anything along but an empty camper. As go6car said take it to a scale(salvage yard, OTR truck depot, farm market, truck stop) and have it weighed

X2 Take the truck and trailer to a scale so you will have accurate #'s to work with.

OK I take the truck and trailer to the scale. Now what? What is the proper way to get all the weight readings that you need?
Should the truck be empty or have approximately equal weight to when you are on the road hauling? Your help would be appreciated by all of
us Newbies.

If you want to find the weight of the TT as it came to you (before you put anything in it), then take the TT to the scales empty. If you want to know how much it weighs when you're ready to camp, load it up & then go to the scales. We've done both with our coach. We weighed it on the way home from the dealer when we bought it (had less than 1/4 tank gas, full propane tank, all other tanks empty) & we've had it weighed loaded for travel (food, water, clothes, bedding, supplies, tools, camp chairs, grill...etc). You will be surprised how much "stuff" weighs!

I would think you would already have your truck base weight from the sticker on the door, so take the truck to the scales loaded as you would normally travel (full gas tank + any gear & passengers).

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
