Excellent for my needs.
Love it. It drives really well, like a car.
Beautifully fitted interior.
Good size 3way fridge.
A little gutless and doesn’t like really windy days.
I would highly recommend it, especially for singles as the beds aren’t huge.
Purchased in April 2015.

Fantastic unit love it.
We shopped around and the Sherwood was perfect in every way. Size of unit, comfort, sturdy. It is extremely easy to drive, we tried larger units and from major makers but were not happy with the finish inside. They drove like a truck. We purchased the 2 wheel version but when we upgrade next we would maybe look at the 4 wheel type but really that's a way off. The wife and I couldn't recommend them more highly. Customer service by the team is better than other company's we spoke to.
Good design. 80% Perfect. BUT workmanship inside looks like it was done by a unsupervised 1st year a
I thought I was buying a Premium built motorhome but the items I have had to fix myself is still growing. Not one hole that was drilled through the floor for pipes and wires to pass through was sealed. Water leaks from shower floor not being sealed that damaged wall panels. Water leaks from fuel filler pipe not being sealed where it passed through floor. Gas bottle storage was not sealed from living area so gas entered cabin. Draws kept on coming open because the striker plates where set to high. Still sticking edge tapes back on. Fridge would ...not work on 12v wire not connected. Battery holding bracket came lose because screws that where to short pulled out of floor. water pump stoped working because of bad wire joints. Microwave came loose. Metal dust from cutting hole in roof through every thing in car cabin also in air vents below windscreen inside and out. Took unit back to Suncamper to have shower water leaks and panel damage fixed they covered up the damage by sticking a panel over the rotted panel and plastered silicon every where then on the way home a cupboard door that was removed to do work fell of. Lucky I am a Carpenter/ Cabinet Maker. Had no trouble with outside workmanship.
DO NOT LEAVE YOUR MOTORHOME ON CONSIGNMENT WITH SUNCAMPER
Do not leave your motorhome on consignment with Suncamper. We did, much to our regret. We had advertised our Suncamper Sherwood privately, and were contacted by Suncamper offering to sell it on consignment. Their fee was reasonable, they had a buyer interested, and the contract said that final payment would be made to us within two weeks of the sale. So we signed up in early July 2015. The vehicle was sold mid July but when we hadn’t received any payment by mid August, we started making enquiries of Suncamper GM Cameron Harrison. Despite m...ultiple phone calls and multiple emails, we were always put off, calls never returned, emails never replied to. I felt that we were being scammed. Concerned about this, we contacted the Dept of Fair Trading, and found that the ATO had applied to wind up the company. Further investigation by our solicitor found out that the ATO debt was repaid prior to the relevant court date. We were able however to apply to become a substitute creditor in that action. All of this was occurring while I was undergoing chemo treatment for cancer - quite a stressful time overall. It was only when Suncamper received notification of our application that they eventually acted. Payment was finally received in mid November, four months after it was due. So … be warned!
The Toyota is great; the expensive box on the back is fraught with problems
From day one this vehicle has been a headache. The concept is good, but the quality of workmanship atrocious. This vehicle has been back to the factory so many times it is beyond ridiculous. As well as the frequent build and equipment issues, every time it comes back there is some other damage done by careless workmen. As soon as the money is taken, they don't give a damn. I have been asking for a refund from the start, and keep getting "give us another chance"
The best of its kind by far
Been over and around Australia twice in Suncamper's 4x4 Toyota Hilux Sherwood. Rough tracks, gravel roads, motorways, it handles all perfectly. Cleverly designed, practical and comfortable for two, I wouldn't buy anything else. Product backup by Suncamper is excellent. The best advice: buy the smallest motorhome you're comfortable living in, not the biggest you can afford - this motorhome fits the bill. Just placed an order for Sherwood number three.
November 6th 2016 Update: A Year Down the Track
Had my third Suncamper Sherwood, Toyota 4...x4 for just over a year now. Added solar panels, a Webasto heater in the back and air bag control in the cab. Knocked over quite a few k's, the last one being around Tassie. Everything running perfectly. They get better all the time and are still the best design of its size. The new diesel Toyota is a more comfortable drive and quieter than earlier models. A minor problem with the fuel filler pipe breather was immediately fixed by the manufacturer. Best advice: buy the smallest motorhome you can be comfortable in, not the biggest you can afford. This one fits the bill for me.
We recently purchased a second hand Suncamper Sherwood,2 years old with 16000km.It is great to drive,well built,and cruises along in easy style on the highway.The rear and side window views are excellent and although a bit more room would be handy the ease of parking makes up for that..We have been driving for 6 weeks without any problems.Solar Panels ,an extra battery and Satellite TV Dish have made it near perfect.Great little vehicle.Definately 5 star.
Easy to park and drive.Comfortable.
Cruise conrrol,central locking and electric mirrors would be good
Life wasn't meant to be this good!
It is always an exciting time planning a trip into the outback in our 4WD Suncamper Sherwood motorhome. This is now a regular ocurrence every 3 to 4 months, departing Victoria and heading north.
The Suncamper is easy to drive and park and has all the possible creature comforts for the outback. The 180 degree window views at the back allows us to view all the scenery around us whenever we stop.
Quite frequently our Suncamper is a point of interest from people who are considering a caravan or motorhome to go holidaying around Australia.
Our Suncamper is a wonderful lifestyle
Really neat little motorhome!!
Small and easy to drive but still spacious inside. Easy to use and practical layout. Well built. A joy to drive and stay in. Well insulated.
Well built, spacious, huge windows.
Gas box key was a little sticky.
