Travel Trailer Mileage

I"ve got a 2007 25rks that has been to the west coast and back serval times. I estimating the trailer milage at around 30k. What things should I be checking on the trailer for excessive wear.
Also, what kind of life (miles) can I realistically expect out of this trailer. Its been great so far, but trying to plan for the future.

There are probably a lot of things that should be checked, but I'd start with all parts of the axles and suspension, brakes, wheel bearings and seals, the hitch, tires (if the date code is more than 5 years old, replace even if they still look good), any roof-mounted components (particularly the A/C mount bolts and foam seal), and the caulking around joints and seams. These are safety and water damage items, and then start looking at the less important and cosmetic things. I'm sure I've forgotten about some other essentials, but others can chime in on those. That should keep you busy for a while. Don't know about the mileage - seems to me if everything either checks out or gets repaired, you're good to go indefinitely - for as long as you still like the unit. JMHO
