I would guess ( and yes get shop service records and warranty work done for the truck ) that the oil economy struggles that are out there did him in. I don't have a great handle on the whole picture but I think some sectors are laying off people they can do without and also I know its been said before about some hauls that get bidded lower and lower until it makes no sense to even turn the key as the general expenses are more then what the income from the haul route is paying. When things go south then there are units for sale that were a repo or maybe a early lease return etc if they allow that.
I am really surprised at the 8900kg, maybe the sleeper and tires are filled with helium !. I'd take the truck across a scale to get steer and drive axle weights, measure the fuel the best you can in the tanks and calculate full up weight.
