I am looking at a 2000 FL60, 110363 miles, with a 3100 Cat

Customer Question

I am looking at a 2000 FL60, 110363 miles, with a 3100 Cat engine to pull my 38' 3 horse living quarters trailer (dry weight on 16, 500), that may weigh up to 20, 000 lbs loaded. The truck has a manual transmission. First question- is this truck going to be able to pull my loaded trailer safely? Second question- my Husband is very tall- how much room is there for the driver? We are a little concerned he may n ot have enough room to shift. Thanks
JA: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?
Customer: 2000 Freightliner FL60 7.2L 250 hp Cat 6 speed trans. extended cab air ride, air brakes dove tail flat bed This is all I have for information. I called the seller, and it doesn't sound like the truck is at his location. I think he would be able to get the VIN for me, but maybe not today.
JA: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Thanks, ***** ***** I have for info.
