How long will it last?

Well, its now 10 years and 150,000 miles on the beast. I've kept up with basic maintenance; fluids, shocks, filters, brakes, tires and such (and more than few cam sensors), but I'm beginning to wonder if there isn't something I might be missing. I tow a ~7k trailer several times a year, 12-16 hrs each way, otherwise it is my daily driver. No real mods except for an old Hypertech 3 stage power programmer I keep at level 1. Suggestions, warnings to keep me awake at night?
