diesel swap help

I am looking for a diesel to swap into my van camper. I have found quite a few MB 300's in the junk yards that run great but the body's have given out. The engine I believe would be good is the 6 cylender turbo. My question is will/can the engine and transmission handle the load? More so can the trany handle the load? My vechicle is gm wide bodied van 8600gvw estimated at 5400 inloaded, so shes light for a camper. Also information on the gear ratios in the 4 speed automatic?

Note: no I do not have the cash for a Sprinter
