There doesn't seem to be much space for two rear beds in a Campscout Revolution for 4-peeps but can the lower one be removed so that the top one then sits in its place instead?

Good idea in theory but I could never sleep in either of those rear beds if they were both in situ.
Too claustrophobic, top one too high and I would have nightmares sleeping on the bottom with that above me.

Horses for courses, I wouldn't feel comfortable with the low height in the standard PVCs but while I'm asleep I don't notice much. In fact we have slept with the top bunk right at the top so we have been pretty much between the cupboards.
As far as I know its the only PVC available that can sleep 4 adults on double beds.

we have the 600L revolution - but only with the upper bed -
For us it works great, as we can travel (and sleep with our bikes inside the van. the standard bed height is 720mm above floor level (common with most vans. but 29er MTB (even with a dropper post fully depressed with the front wheel off (or a road bike without front wheel but with saddle in correct position (is about 750-770mm high - so won't fit under a standard bed.
the ability to raise and lower the rear bed is super - we leave the rear bed made up and can lift it to the roof to load / travel in the van with the bikes under it.

The Campscout Revolution is now a no-go for us.

I asked for a PX price against a MY19 CS Revolution Elegance model with 450-miles on the clock and the cost-to-change was £14,250 against the forecourt price of just over £58,000.

We'll stick with what we've got for now.

Shop around and/or sell it privately ... that's what we did when we changed to the Globecar Campscout, selling our Familyscout privately.

I don't think we have long left for this motorhome world of ours Mel so I will be looking around for houses to buy in Cyprus or Spain instead. :D

I can use the PVC for moving our gear instead of renting a van from Enterprise, albeit Enterprise do some bl○○dy fantastic daily rates, lol.
