I was thinking of changing to a Sherbourne, mainly because it is a VW / Auto-sleeper and for the larger washroom, but it is too big for me to use as an everyday vehicle, I like the unusual layout, there aren`t many about, good luck with your search. I don`t know of any cons with it, there is a Sherbourne owner on here so will be able to help you better.

Best Regards,
Margaret

You will notice the comfort of a bigger van to your Topaz, as I found when I changed from  a Topaz.

They don't last long in the for sale adverts  That says a lot and we don't need to preach the merits of the T4 as you have one

Hi there I have had my Sherbourne for nearly 3 years now having swapped for my symphony and have not looked back, a great MH

as you know the 2.5 VW is brilliant and the economy is really good but you know that already.

I have been to France at least 6 times right down south and it was effortless, I did chip the engine only for more pulling power and

that made a big difference on what was a good puller anyway but that,s just me.

The washroom etc meets all my other half needs which makes for a pleasant away times allthumbz and I have used it summer beachball and winter cold and

the heating is more than up for it (I do have a heated tank not sure if this was standard).

Check for a fracture between the water fill and bottom skirt they were prone to this because of flexing but don't let this put you off.

Check the rear springs are not broken I had one and did not notice I have since changed for new heavy duty ones the ride is much

improved prior to the spring breaking.

The Kingsize bed is massive the only down side is when fully extended (you don,t have too) the gap between the bed and the sink

 unit is narrow for that first cup of tea in bed.
 
The quality of the woodwork is brilliant as are all AS products,

I have now started rallying and use an inflatable awning which I tow all my gear in a trailer with no problems.

Knowing what I know now about the Sherbourne would I buy one? you bet a great all round MH quality made.

If you need any further info then just let me know.

Pat. up!
