What are the condition issues at 785k miles that caused her retirement?

She is still in Great Condition... But our other one that we purchased has had the Motor replaced and under 50.000 miles... So we figure use her now when that needs serviced.. And just things around Home... As we All They All Have There Day... Im Very Proud & Love Mine.., I have Spent More Time In My Sprinter In the last 5 yrs than My Home...

Zimaleta the Sprinter DIY youtuber has one with over a million miles on it. He changed the motor around 800,000 miles.

2012 with almost 400k kilometres
My van is a 170" WB High Top 2012 Volkswagen Crafter 2.0TDi, which was built in the very same German factory as the Mercedes Sprinter of the same year.

Last I heard Ciprian's 2005 once in expediter service is still seeing occasional use. 770,000+ miles on original drivetrain. My 2004 recently hit 330,000 miles/original drivetrain. I suspect that body rust is what will do in my 2004, not miles.

DAD NAS (N. Amer. Spec) 2004 140 2500 >330,000+ mi. Arctic Whitewash Brush-tone Grey
2006 Freightliner 140 2500HC >183,000+ mi. Arctic Whitewash (Spotted Snow Leopard accents)

‘06 @ 1,083,271
Second engine, currently @ 463,000. Just recently 3rd transmission replacement. All 3 replacements Silverstar, each seems to die a bit earlier than the previous. Carrier bearing in differential @ 997,000, replaced all differential and axle bearings at that time. Ring & pinion and axles are original. Otherwise, usual stuff; couple injector seals, all injectors replaced @ 430,00 on this engine, ac compressor, couple radiators, water pumps, 3 alternators, 3 starters, 1 turbo, hoses, cruise control switch, etc..
