I am relatively certain that is a 12.7 liter based on the HP ratings posted.  The 11.1L was available at that time, but it seems to be limited to 400 HP in most cases plus I've mostly seen the 11.1L in day cabs (Or Dina buses in my case).  My limited research tells me the 14L didn't come out until EGR was added in the early part of this decade so this engine is about a decade too old to be 14L.

My opinion is I would not buy the truck if I was planning to keep the cab and build an RV out of it.  You'll probably ditch the sleeper, but the rest of the cab will still need a fair bit of work.

Hard to say what the worth is with out inspecting it and having the knowledge to know what you are seeing.

Go here and educate yourself:


Also just type truck salvage in the search window and explore.

Good Luck,
