    Yes these are pretty cool. I’ve owned a 2015 NV200 since I purchased new in early 2015. There are several companies in Europe that have been converting these for awhile and a conversion for my van is still on the ‘to do’ list. 2021 will be the last year for the NV200 as Nissan is dropping the line. Why, I haven’t a clue. If they would make the van about 17″ longer and maybe a few inches wider between the wheel wells and offer some different engine, suspension and transmission options, I think they would run away with the small utility van market but apparently Nissan doesn’t spend much time consulting with people that use these vans. I’m wondering what van Recon will choose as a substitute if they will continue in this market. I think it’s a great market and anytime you can travel, camp, and average 25mpg, it’s great.

    What surprised and delighted me the most was the size of the sink. A large sink is very helpful when there’s no dishwasher. It’s a charming little find
