When looking at used gas based MH's, is the an amount of mileage where you would be concerned? As an example, would 75,000 miles be acceptable on a 8 - 10 year old MH? How about 90,000 miles? I know diesels go on for much longer but have no "rule of humb" for a gas MH.

Care of the engine is the important item here. If the oil was changed regularly it makes a big difference. I only have 38K on my MH and it is 10 years old. Normal usage would be a few more miles per year than mine. I think tires should be a huge concern also. If the tires have a lot of tread but are over 7 years old the chances are they need replacement immediately. Fortunately you can see the date of manufacture on tires but not oil changes and their frequency.

Engines with a goodly number of miles don't concern me, if they have had good maintanance.
