How many miles is too many for an tough old Ford F350?

If you were like us looking for a used truck camper for an extended trip in South America would you see a 2004 FordF350 V8 diesel warhorse with 200,000 miles on the clock as an option worth considering if it was in good working condition and came with a credible history, or would you dismiss it as an old piece of junk likely to be a constant source of headaches? To me 200,000 miles seems to be a LOT but maybe that is not as near the expiry date for a beast of this size and strength as it would be for the smaller cars I am used to driving, so would welcome your opinion.
