I have a BES 4.1 server running under a trial that is set to expire.
We just purchased BES 5.0
Here are my thoughts on how I will set this up. Do you think it will work?
1 - Install BES5.0 On seperate server, using a different SQL DB, Obviously w/ seperate SRP
2 - Use the same service account
3 - Connect to the same MAPI profile
4 - Delete the user from BES 4.1
5 - Have user wipe handheld
6 - Activate user on BES 5.0 server
Let me know if using one BES account will cause issues or if this looks like a safe way to migrate.

This will be fine, you should have no issues.
You may want to look at the resource kit as there is a tool in there that has just been released known as the Transporter.
It allows you to move users seemlessly between database (BlackBerry Domains).

The upgrade documentation mentions that in-place upgrades are only for the smallest of installs. Has anyone tried this in a larger environment ( 200+ users). I dont see why it wont work, but i'm looking for validation.

Small environemnt compared to yours- 300 users.
300 users is perfectly fine to do in place.
