Our truck is a 2004 Chevy and we have over 225,000 miles on it and still runs great. Only major repair so far has been a water pump (not cheap on the diesel, $500.00+ for a good pump not including labor).
As for the truck you are looking at that is really low miles for that year and as long as it was well maintained should provided plenty of years of service. If the price is right I would take the truck to a certified mechanic and have them check everything out for you. It might cost you $100.00+ for the inspection but would give you a good piece of mind and a barganing chip if you find a problem with it.
Any vehicle you buy is going to cost you money and is going to need general maintenance but when you start towing with it you can usually expect to do the maintenance a little more often.
Good luck with your purchase!
