Mike, if your still composing questions, you might ask if the owner knows what the front and rear axle weights are. that will give you an idea of how much extra capacity you have on the front axle, and then you will have some idea of your total weight going down the road once you add your trailer with your toys. I am always surprised at how much "stuff" gets packed away trip after trip adding to the total. If everything else looks good, then nothing will give you a better feel then taking it for a test drive. Not sure where it is located but hopefully you can find a long enough hill to give you an idea of power and to make sure the gears are not too far apart for decent hill climbing.

You remind me of the Cannonball Run movie, when Terry Bradshaw asks Mel Tillis "did you bring enough beer, son?" and the reply is "p-p-p-plenty". (backseat of racecar stacked with case upon case of beer).
