technical info on 67 ambassador - length 28 feet

Hi there, I have been looking for some detail everywhere without enough accuracy so far. I have been trying to negotiate buying a 67 ambassador and need to find out the body overall length with and without hitch and seperately without the hitch and the rear bumper as well. It is right on a strange length limit for tow vehicle weights and capacities if used in Europe. I also have the weights as 4500lbs wet and 3500 lbs dry. The tongue weight appears to be 450 lbs. If anyone can confirm these weights this would be a great help as after I USE THE TRAILER in the US behind my one ton dodge I wanted to do so in Europe without taking the dodge! There are some funny rules and regulations on towing and weights as well as appropriate braking systems in europe and while I have them I need to accurately apply them to an appropriate vehicle. Maybe there are some previous threads, which I cannot find? Anyway thanks if you can help. Daniel.

The Ambassador is officially 28 feet long, unofficially it is more like 29 feet. without the hitch and bumper, it is 26 feet long. The weights you have been given are a bit low, as our '63 Overlander had a dry weight of 4420 pounds. Then you add the weight of the gas tanks, the fresh and waste water, air conditioner, awning, and of course, food and personal items.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
