Yes we have had 3 with this layout, 2015 VIP, 2019 VIP and now 2020 VIP, prefer it more to the fixed single beds (we were close to buying, but then realised the lack of living space) as we do not make to front bed up to double. The new shape gets rid of the slipping between the cushions at the front, we must admit the upholstery quality is not as good as our 2019 model, but time will tell we will be away for 12 nights near to Christmas. We like sitting at the side dinette for meals and playing games, it also gives the front seating a rest. Nice large shower instead of the half round we had in the 2015 model, and of course the 2020 now has Thetford toilet and cooker instead of the disgraceful Dometic ones..

 

For our 2019 model I did a review if you are interested please read it https://www.caravantalk.co.uk/community/topic/132497-vip-520-2019/page/2/#comments

Have a 2017 Pastiche, love it, couple of Duvalay sleeping bags, job done. It just has everything a couple would need.

Had a 2006 Pastiche 520, 2016 Pastiche 520 and have an Acadia 520 on order for delivery December.

 

We've always liked the layout, suits us very well. Like to have the living space and the double bed doesn't take any great effort to put together.

we have two large dogs so the dinette bed provides a space for them:D.

We were pleased to see that the Acadia has returned to the pull-out slat system for the double, the 2016 used a metal frame which initially seemed a good idea but because you had to pull it ACROSS the caravan and push it back when unmaking the beds it meant working at an awkward angle. added unnecessary weight to the van as well.

Also like the larger 'square' shower rather than the half-round which was much to small to be useable. not sure how the smaller wardrobe will work but everything's a compromise in the end.
