What's your hitch rating, GVWR, and GCWR? The weight ratings should be on a placard or sticker in the coach somewhere.

Hmm. It's probably a conversion of the Gillig Phantom school bus. Not sure if the placard would still be in it anywhere.

That's a lot of weight and the stacker will be like dragging a parachute. With a 3208 cat you will not be setting the road on fire by a long ways. Last one I seen didn't even have a turbo and they are somewhat shy of 200 HP I am thinking. But you need to check your weight rating like FlyingDiver said first I would think.

If it's the 210hp version of the 3208, forget it. If it's the 375 or 435hp version, maybe.
