How many miles will a VW Transporter T5 last?

Is 133,910 miles classed as high mileage for a 2007 VW T5 SWB Campervan 2.0 85PS? What mileage could you expect from this engine?

Fairly typical for a van of this age. There is no reason why it can't go on for many more years, but it'll boil down to the condition of the vehicle and its history. The seller should have a folder full of receipts and paperwork for previous repairs and servicing. As a minimum, the van should have had a service every 12 months or 12,000 miles (which includes an oil and filter change).
