What are you guys now doing for tires?

Hi I'm Isaac from New Zealand. I've just bought a 2010 NV200 with the view of making it into a cool little camper. For me the biggest drawback with other campers in NZ is that they are mostly old and thirsty! So hopefully this new baby will be economical and reliable!

Meet Squirt!

Hey, I'm Steve from Alexandria, VA and I am one of the newest members of the NV200 owner's club. I've named mine Squirt. I got him so I can haul my motorcycle to track events (hopefully some races next season.)

I wasn't sure if I wanted this or a pickup truck. I used to haul my bike around in a Ford E250. Since I only have one 4-wheel vehicle, that E250 (VANce) got a whopping 14 MPG whether it was loaded to the gills or if I was running errands. It had to go. I replaced it with a Mazda6 wagon which I hooked a trailer to. But I cannot store a trailer where I live so I had to make several extra trips every time I went to the track. Now, I've got amazing mileage (over 30 MPG average in my first 1,500 miles!) and the ability to haul my bike. I also took it camping this past weekend and had to sleep in it because the temps dropped below freezing. I will say that it is not very well insulated, but along with a portable heater that we plugged in at the campsite and several layers of clothes, we were fine.

Sadly, I did not realize there was no tow rating on this vehicle until after the purchase. I'm hoping that it could still pull ~2000 pounds or so....although I may wait until the warranty expires to hook up a small pop-up trailer to it.

You are out of the US with a diesel I assume? I've gotten as high as 26.5 mpg's on my US gas engine but no way it would hit 30+ unless it was all downhill .

Hi from Derbyshire England
I have bought a second hand nv200 on a 12 plate. i plan to use the van for my everyday vehicle and not for work. i have always had a van with being a tradesman but now travel to the same place of work so no more company vans for me. tried a car for 12 months but missed a van too much. currently insulating and carpeting etc with a final aim to install 2 single seats in the back for my kids.
i have replied to a few posts but missed the introduction section
will post a few pics as i compete bits of work
Cheers
Phil

I'm Mike from Seaside, OR. Have had my 2015 NV200 SV for about 11 months now, daily driver with 18000 on it. Still longing for a better looking wheel/tire combination. Upgraded the horns, put in some coat hooks and a ceiling bar with hooks for a bike or fishing poles. Would also like to find someone to cover the seats with leather.

Hi from NE Scotland

Hi there,
Just picking up my first NV next week and thought I would give this forum a go to help me along the path of ownership.
I'm going to be using the van for everyday transport and for carrying my scuba gear and taking the dogs wherever/whenever the wife wants.
I'm going to be insulating, paneling and carpeting it to make it more comfortable and am looking for some nice matt black alloys to smarten it up if I can find a suitable set.
Any advice is welcome.

Regards
Mike
