Is 164,000 miles too high on a used van I'm interested in?

I'm looking at a Renault Trafic van. It's a 2011 model with 164,000 miles on the clock. It was previously owned by an engineering company and has a full service history, very clean. Asking £3800. Is this worth it or is the mileage too high? It's a 600-mile round trip to pick it up.

At 10-years-old and 164k, it will be heavily worn and in need of imminent attention and money to keep it on the road. What's more, you'll need to take it back to the dealer (300 miles away) to fix or address any faults that may develop.
