I tow with a 1997 shuttle bus (Ford van front clip). I think hauling your single horse trailer would just fine.

6.5 GMC diesel

After reading the threads about this engine I have some concerns. I plan on mostly short trips 60 miles round trip an occasional longer trip. This bus is a 2002 and the mechanic has told me the valves need adjusting. I've driven the bus as a school bus driver and always found it handled very well including highway speeds and steep hills as we are a very rural area. Any thoughts on this?
