I hope not, but probably is. I plan to put 300,000 on mine.

With proven regular service records, and assuming it hasn't been abused in driving, I wouldn't be concerned about 120,000 miles. It ought to go three times that.

As long as it has had regular maintenance it should be fine.

I can't speak for the engine, but as far as the chassis goes, I've got a 1999 F-350 (diesel) with a little over 300k miles (500k km) on it , almost every one of them hard, working miles, and it still goes down the road just fine.

It's unusually high for a MH, but I wouldn't be concerned if it was properly maintained.

my workhorse w22 chassis under a 39 ft winn chieftain has 149000 on it, and i would take it anywhere. proper service does the job on any chassis.
ps i believe i solved the brake calipher problem myself. i have over 70000 miles on their last fix. it wouldnt go over 15 000 miles before that. i have had three complete replacements.rotors and caliphers. a simple spring on the brake pivot to hold it to the full rest position did the trick for me. i can remove the spring and the rotor temp goes up over 700 degrees in a few miles.
