Nissan nv 200 new small van

Hi Folks I have a lovely vw westy 2 litre, I also run a car. Time has come to merge the two,cant afford to run both. Been looking for a long time for a nice looking donor vehicle that can do the school run, do festivals and camping trips, Im a working musician and need to carry stuff. Looked a loads of mid sized vans during the last year but got put off by mpg economy, citroen nemo came close, at ^0 mpg but too small for my needs, this last week took a test drive in the new Nissan nv 200, 55 mpg, very compact, flat floor with lots of potential, losing my vw will be so hard tho, so im going to take my time, but I do feel i have found a great base vehicle, the combi version has sliding doors and a tailgate style rear doors, making a rock/roll bed a nice option. Id appreciate your thoughts on this van.

hi; did you ever get the nv

hi;

did you ever get the nv 200..?
ive been looking at getting myself one too, the combi version, and removing the rear seats and using as a weekend camper, with removable kitchen unit, bench for sleeping etc...

just wondering how you got on if you went ahead with it that is.

my problem is getting one from the dealer to test drive, they need to order a demo one in or something. i thought they would be more popular. havent seen many on the road either.

Re: Has it been done

We bought a 7 seat NV200 combi in January to use as a multipurpose vehicle. We haven't converted it yet but have bought a Caranex awning to attach to the back to give us more space. My husband slep in it last weekend before & after a running event and we will be doing the same with 4 small dogs using the awning May bank hliday weekend at a triathlon where we have a trade stand.

I've read up on this van too.

I've read up on this van too. Looks great, surprised there are not more about. I think they will become very popular as conversions in years to come.
I'm planning a small van conversion but these are a bit too new for my budget. Thinking of a Peugeot Expert van, anyone had experience of these?

Those Nissans

Are really a Renault Kangoo :) with a slightly different body.

I would be very interested in hearing of any NV200 conversions. I think this will be my next vehicle. It has to be the ultimate small camper!
