Hi,
New member Cambridgeshire UK.
Just bought a new NV200 dci 89 van 13 Reg. This vehicle will be my main domestic transport and not used commercially. I drove a pick up truck for eight years which I loved but the fuel costs became to high and so I bought a Toyota hatch back 1330cc, but with camping, bikes and the dog it didn't quite do the job. So here I am with a van.. Have done 350 miles with an average mpg. reading of 52 which is not far off the Toyota and is reassuring. Like the truck its not a car but the advantages out weigh the disadvantages for me and its nice to have an elevated driving position again.
Looking forward to many happy miles.
Hope to convert to basic over night camper / dog kennel!.

Hello Black van nice to have you along! Welcome aboard. Good mpg figures already, I struggled with mine for a while.......it seems they get better the 'looser' they get.

Hi, I am a new comer here, a soon-to-be-retired now working my last couple of months in Africa. Had given plenty of thoughts about what I want to do after retirement. Converting a small van for home country travels and occasional ventures into neighboring countries was a constant recurring thought...so much so that I started to lurk around campervan forums and found this NV200 site. I am particularly interested in the NV200 because this model was recently introduced into my home country as a CKD (Completely Knocked Down) for re-assembly, therefore much cheaper than importing a CBU (Completely Built-up Unit). I only need a small van for myself living single on-board with a middle weight touring motorcycle carried inside the van. The VN200 seems to fit. Anybody done similar with a motorbike carried inside?

Thumbs up Owner of a Nissan NV 200 Van

My name is Steve and I live in western Colorado. I am not really the owner of the van. The bank actually owns it and they let me drive it as long as I make payments.
I have had it about 6 months and have put over 11,000 miles on it. I bought it to use for extended road trips. I recently returned from a 4715 mile road trip that ran 18 nights. Of those 18 nights I spent 16 in the van.
I am in the process of retrofitting the van and adding storage and entertainment system.

Hi, I've had my Nissan NV200 SV for only a couple of months, and I'm very happy there is now a forum for us NV200 owners. I've used full size, US made vans for many years in my construction business. I have recently switched to working part time, and plan on traveling a lot more, so the NV200 fits the bill. Going from 13 MPG to 26 MPG is very nice. While I have installed shelving in my new van, I have no plans to upfit my van for camping or work much beyond what I have already done. I'm used to backpacking and cycle touring with minimal gear, so I'm just happy that I can travel light and sleep in the back of my new van when I'm on the road.

Loving my new ride

I have had my NV200 for about 6 weeks now and am enjoying it. I am using it to commute to my long distance job and sleep in the nights I stay at work. I am slowly modifying the interior and am interested if anyone finds premade interior panels.

hi , i am Erwin and i live in the Flanders region of Belgium , with my 54 years i have a lot of driving experience in vans and utility cars . since i am looking for a single multi use van i was surprised by the price and possibility's for the Nissan Evalia .
i have already used it for camping trips ( with a small caravan and as a camper to visit festivals and dog competitions )
last year i made some mod's to take my dogs and the caravan on the holiday to austria and it was a succes , on flat roads i could drive with no problems 115km/h ( i did go to 126 read on the garmin gps ) but on a steeper road i had to slow down , but overall i love the driving of the car , later i will post som pictures of my transformations

Aloha from Kauai Hawaii,
Just purchased a 2014 NV200SV and just looking for info and tips on this little Jewel. I see most of you are primarily outside the USA and I have to say I'm a little jealous that everyone but the US gets Diesel engines. One day they'll wake up here in the US. I'm on the Island of Kauai and I up until lately only rode Harleys and a 2000 Dodge Ram just sat in the driveway rusting. Someone offered a nice price for it so I sold it. Then after 45 years of riding I had 2 accidents in less than a month..... Wake-up call? Maybe! I needed a vehicle. I think the wife was tired of shuttling me around. As a kid growing up in Southern California, I had a 1958 VW panel delivery bus with double side doors on both sides and no side or rear windows.... Enter the NV200. Not the 58' delivery (wish I still had it) but close enough. I'm also a Ham Radio operator, NH6HI, and plan to put a mobile station in it.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Aloha,
Kauai_Jim
