Smile Questions about my new (to me) Airstream...

Hello everyone, I'm happy to have joined this site!! Since I was a child I always wanted an Airstream, we finally own one! Ironically the trailer I used to see as a child we now coincidentally own. I didn't know this was THE one I saw growing up until after we bought it and my Father contacted the original owners. What a small world, this former beauty (30' International Sovereign) was purchased new in 1968 in Sarasota Florida. We live in Ontario Canada, these original owners who haven't owned it for 11 years are only 25 miles from me... strange.
Anyhow, my manual is missing pages 109 and 110... does anyone know the dry weights of this unit? It does have A/C. Is the dry weight including the water tank full? I'm told Airstream factored that in.
What is the tongue weight?
Most important, how do I properly repair a leaking vista view window? All three of mine are leaking and I need to repair that ASAP.
Your answers are so much appreciated. I'm looking forward to a complete restoration, this trailer I'll have forever. A few years back I restored an 18' Serro Scotty camper (if you remember those - before my time as I'm 30) so that was practice - this one will be beautiful again!!
Thanks muchly! Ryan

Hi, first I want to welcome you to the forums. What a strange coincidence regarding the ownership of your trailer.
Below is a chart in which you should be able to find the info you seek on weights.
Nice to have another new member.

Acording to this chart. The dry weight is 4640 pounds and the hitch weight is 415 pounds. The dry weight is the weight of the trailer with no options and no fluids. The AC unit, water in the tank and even the propane in the tanks are not included in the dry weight.
