If it were a gas engine, I wouldn't touch it. With it being a diesel, as long as it's in good shape (body, exterior, interior, tranny feels tight, etc) I wouldn't sweat it. Years ago I bought a Powerstroke that had 220K on it and drove it till it had 275K before I traded it for another vehicle. I didn't have a single problem with that truck. As long as things are maintained, that truck is just getting broken in.

Thanks for all of the great advice. I have went over this vehicle and am amazed at how clean it is. I called the previous owner who lives in town and found out the reason for trading it in was due to retiring and wanting to actually be able to park a vehicle close to a store. I was able to test drive it all weekend and have been impressed with it's ride anf fuel mileage. I think I have found the TV to match with a future 5th Wheel. Thanks again for the advice and I can't wait to introduce the new ride to my Puma this next weekend.

Try not to forget about the Puma the first time you tow I had a similar experience with my old TT after I traded the 1500 Ram for the 2500 Ram w/Cummins
