    It was nice to see Sygooner's NV200 conversion, similar layout to my own (mostly) self-built one. I completed it last year and enclose a couple of pics taken on my summer holiday to Brittany. As I live in Scotland it covered 1650 trouble-free miles in a fortnight.

    I have added 16" All Season Van tyres since then, a really good addition as the profile fits the wheel arches better (as well as giving better grip in most circumstances).
    Still enjoying the forum, so useful.

    Just lovely!-

    Hi there, have been seriously considering a Lunar Vacanza and love the van - but am concerned about the lack of overall space with the Lunar conversion. Yours looks lovely - are you thinking of going into business?? Will definitely now look at getting a conversion done. What sort of price should I pay for a new or newish base vehicle and is it best sourced straight from Nissan? Any advice gratefully received - but meanwhile 'Well [email protected]

    Thought you might like to see a few pics of my NV.
    Its based on the VW side layout and I've completed most of the work myself.
    Finished it about 3 weeks ago and have been to north Wales and Brighton so far.

    Very nice conversion and I am a fan of the black & white approach! (Love the cushions & curtains too.)

    I saw a Hillside Dalbury at the Newbury show last weekend, which I thought was a very nice van indeed - like a VW that shrunk in the wash! I think the NV200 looks like a very nice base vehicle for small conversions in the style of the VW approach. And at about half the price of a new well specced VW it makes it a very thought provoking option for a person currently running an R10.

    Thanks, that doesn't sound too bad at all.

    Did they fit the roof for you as well, and if so roughly what would they charge for that?
    Hi
    Yes the roof was supplied and fitted by them and the cost was about £1,700+ vat if I remember correctly

    Hi
    Yes that would be fine. The roof came from Sussex campervans

    Alternative NV200 layouts

    The Dutch company , CustomCamp have a layout using a lengthwise sofa down one side of the van. You can find them on google. Also Urban Campers in Yorkshire have a few different layouts using a rear kitchen across the back of the van and others with no rock and roll bed. You basically have similar options to those found in SWB VWs but a little smaller than the latest transporter versions.

    I don't like the bed arrangement in the Vacanza - but then I don't like rock and roll beds either, what alternative is there for a little van like this?

    Hi Dinkum,
    Very nice looking van and I think you've gone for the right layout too (I had a good look around the Lunar Vacanza at last years show, that layout is dreadfull in my opinion, cramped and not a comfortable seat in the house!!.... the mag reviews have been gushing!!)
    I think the base vehicle is really good and an exciting van to come into the scene..... Sussex campers have done a layout like yours on it too. Really look forward to seeing more pics of yours as it emerges!
    All the best

    NV200 ,some more bits of info

    The engine is the Renault 1.5 dci turbo diesel. Some versions factory "chipped" to 110ps. The floor of the entire van is effectively flat throughout , making the cab a useful part of a conversion if you fit swivel seats. The German company, zooom, have TUV approved swivels available if you do not want to convert your own universal swivels or if you want that insurance of approved parts.
    There are a few variations in what you can buy but even the basic versions are well equipped and lovely to drive in my opinion. A major plus is fuel economy. My brother uses his as a builder's van and can achieve a very respectable 52 to 53 mpg. Lots of other users report this too.
    Many layouts are feasible for conversion to campervan including classic side cupboard (with easy access to rear of cupboard (hob/sink/water/gas/battery) due to twin sliding doors as standard) Rock and roll type rear seat beds can be used and fitted with safety belts.
    A dutch version uses a large side sofa and swing out kitchen for use inside or out. Urban Campers have a few different layouts.
    Flush glass is now available from cheaper "pattern" glass suppliers as the people carrier versions are glazed all round. Originally only expensive Nissan glass was available.
    Just think of the Nissan NV200 as a slighter smaller, economical and reliable modern alternative to a SWB VW . Not for everyone , but I love them!
    I have photos and ramblings you will pick up on my blog by googling "dinkum kamper"
