I don't have one but I dig them. They're based off the Titan which has proven to be a pretty reliable vehicle. The truck style front end and cab seems like a huge plus.

I'm looking for a deal on a high-top heavier duty NV2500/3500 version. The only bummer is there is no longer wheelbase version.

I think they’re cool AF. Throw a set of rims on it and roll son!

Can you get a bike in the NV 200?

Thank you for the feed back. I have looked at every brand and the NV seems like the best deal new.

I saw one the other day that was mildly lifted (~3") with after market wheels and some AT tires, looked totally bitchin. I'd love to have one, very cool vehicle IMO

One of the off-road tv shows did this one a few years ago. Pretty sick, obviously not stock drivetrain.

I would buy a Nissan because of more foot room, and the bigger hood to make maintenance easier. I almost bought one, but I'd rather spend money on more bikes.

That rig has the Cummins 5.0 engine in it. Very cool stuff.

I’ve got a 3500 standard roof for work, much better than the equivalent size GMC/Chevy. More space, rear doors swing nearly 270°, sliding door latches open, more cockpit space, A/C that doesn’t quit, the list goes on. Nearly 70k miles in 1.5yrs and it’s had 0 issues, just regular scheduled maintenance and tires at 55k. As for the service department, not nearly as good as the vehicle itself.

The truck style front end seems like the big minus to me. The point of going with a van is that in pushing the cab above the engine, you gain more cabin space with less overall length.

You can fit two bikes in an nv200 if you're crafty and neither bike has hand guards.. (hand guards will fit if you pull the forks down a little with a strap before you roll them in. I have an NV200 and drive the piss out of it.. the only real downside I see to it is there aren't a lot of tire choices for the 185/60-15 with the 92-94 load rating.

I have a 2500 high roof and love it, drives as good as my 2016 Toyota Tundra did. I'm building it out as a camper van. Sprinters are good when still under warranty lol.

Yes, I put mine in sideways. The roof is barely high enough but it fits without compressing the forks.

How do you do that with two bikes? Do you not have the wall behind your cabin?
I've bought a set of 16 inch wheels for mine so I can run 205/55-16 tires. There are also people who put on 17 inch wheels.

I don’t have the cargo wall.. point the ass end of one bike right to the center console and put the front end in the corner. Move passenger seat up just a little and put ass end of 2nd bike up there as close to the center as you can, and put the front wheel in the corner. Strap down and go.

I’d buy one of those if we had them in Aus. Got similar rims on my black patrol smile (armada in the states) Photo
