After a few years of looking at the Auto sleeper Bourton  we have sold our caravan and we will be picking up our 2015 Bourton on wednesday!!   Only 17,000 miles on the clock.  It is a big move for us, I am 71 and have a young wife of 68!!   We are very excited, but also very nervous.  I am sure i will get used to it, and enjoy years of fun travel!!   Thanks for reading.

Think that if you had asked for comments, advice or tips these would have been forthcoming.  Your original post reads as a statement,  not an invitation to respond.

When we bought our WXL two years ago I was concerned  about driving  such a large vehicle  after nearly 50 years of car driving, you soon get used to the size and characteristics of the Peugeot vehicle.  The cab is quite comfortable.

One of the fun bits is arriving on site, parking in pitch and getting kettle straight  on the sitting with a cuppa watching caravaners unihitching maneuvering,  setting up water and waste master, parking car, pitching awning then getting their kettle on..and reverse while breaking camp.

Enjoy

We had a 2019 Bourton it was an automatic which was a peach to drive and easy to park up etc.

However unlike the Winchcombe (which got split seats) making up the double bed was a nightmare because of the length of the seats. So single beds best although the long back cushion gets under feet stored o/night in the middle.

The unique toilet/shower room works ok but the floor in toilet area could do without the different floor levels bits. If you are disabled this can be a problem. The loo is also high for those that are not 6 foot.

Preferred the Winchcombe layout with end bathroom but had to sell because of the C1 licence rule.

The Bourton is a lovely vehicle but the Broadway EB on the new Fiat Auto got the full end bathroom

In our Bourton (2020) and also in our former Stanton (the baby Bourton) we just pull the bed bases out far enough for the long cushions to drop down behind the seat base where it remains for the night. No clutter in the middle and no cold wall to roll into whilst asleep. The beds are still full width, you don't lose out in that respect. We do this if we want to relax horizontal during the day also, so it does not feel like you are resting on a narrow shelf.

We came from years of caravanning and don't regret it.

Yes, we do the same. Cushions and bolsters go on the cab seats and long back cushions drop down the side. A couple of Duvalays and we are all set. Very quick and comfortable.
