Hiya Brian, we have a 462 which we bought new in 1998. It's a smashing caravan. The layout is just what we wanted, and the price was right. It tows like a dream, and has proved to be very reliable. I have it serviced every year by a local lad who runs a mobile servicing business (Caravan Care Service, based near Castleford, 110% reliable, anyone want his number just ask via the forum).
We did think about trading it in last year, but having looked around, didn't think we would be getting anything better for the money, so decided to keep it for another couple of years. What more can I say.
