Buying advice on used Borregos with 100k+ miles

Looking for advice on what to look for when buying a used Borrego with 100k+ miles. Would love to get a V8, but it's very rare where I live. I may have to settle for a v6. It will be used for occassional towing a 3500 lb travel trailer. Thanks in advance for the help.

I have an 2009 LX. Had front wheel bearing go out at 95K, transmission started doing weird stuff then too so it was also replaced (all under warranty).
AC went out at 130K miles, new struts, shocks and tire rod ends replaced at 125K and aligned (I wish I hadn't because I paid 1500 bucks to do it).
Both sun visors fell out around 100K miles (plastic piece broke cheap but I jury rigged it to keep them working). Headlights domes are starting to get a little cloudy.

All in all the vehicle is awesome still going strong at 130K miles.
