Question model number question

I recently was given a 1986 Prowler fifth wheel trailer. It was in need of alot of attention. I have most of the work done but what I am curious about is what the 3000 CL means on the front side. I printed the NADA sheet for 1986 Prowler RV's but all it seems to mean is the 3000 CL is lighter by approx. 700 lbs.

It just one of those things that makes you want to go "Hum, I wonder what that means". Doesn't matter one way or another, just wondering.

Typically the number part relates to the length in some fashion, e.g. a 3000 might be 30 ft long (either overall length or length of the interior floor space). The letters usually designate a floor plan, e.g. CL might mean "Center Lounge" or something like that. But it could just as easily mean something else - marketing people are paid to be creative, so they are always changing things to fool us into thinking it's a new and improved thingie.

Pretty confusing - I do not believe it is 30 Ft. long but I am going to measure and make sure and the Lounge is in the rear across from the dining table. That is why I am so confused over the 3000 CL.
