Approximate weight of various Airstreams

Is there a site where I can find approximate weights of the various lengths of Airstreams?
My wife Susan and I are selling our Jayco 26' Class C Motorhome so we can get an Airstream. We DID buy our tow vehicle this week. We got a 2004 Silverado 2500HD Extended Cab with 6 liter gas engine, heavy duty automatic and 4.10 gears. I know, I know. . . the deisel would have pulled better, but the gas engine smells better!
We probably are looking at a 30 foot or shorter, and we would prefer the rear bedroom. I don't know what floorplans were available in what lengths. A link to that info would be helpful too.
Thanks.

The link is from the Airstream Corporate website.

BTW, welcome to the Forum & good luck with your search!

Yeah, I've noticed that there are a few "holes" in the Trailer Weights List...

If you don't already have the owner's manual, which would have this information, you may want to obtain a copy.

You can get photocopies of owners manual (1964+) and service manuals (1972-1986) from:

Helen Davis Secretarial Services
PO Box 484 Sidney, OH 45365
(937)492-8885

Prices are about $33 and $70 respectively. After 1986 the Owners Manuals included available service information
