NV200 Micro Camper

Hi everyone,

Have always toyed with the idea of a small camper van and have see a lot online about the Nissan NV200 kitted out as a 2 berth camper.


Has anyone on this forum got/ used one of these?

If so what are your opinions on this? Are they too compact/ small etc?


Ideally this would be used for two people (and the dog!!) for 2/3 nights getaway around this beautiful country (when it ain't raining)

Here is the main question - I would like to use this camper van (or another type of camper van) as a daily vehicle too - used for going to/ from shops, work etc. Is this an issue??

What are the pitfalls?


Thank you very much folks

Seriously you can only wait 9 hours to bump your post? Under 1.8m high you will have to fight with revenue on your hands to get it registered and will have to join a club to get insurance. Small camper is a nice romantic Instagram idea but unless you have to fit it in an underground car park do yourself a favour and convert something bigger.

Didn't mean to offend with my impatience!😜

I would be looking to bring an already converted NV 200 from the UK

It won't be accepted as a camper here, it will be what the Revenue call a Day Van.

How come lots of people with VW Transporters have them registered as campers? They are certainly under 1.8m high inside.

No problem with that, you just won't qualify for cheap tax and insurance - which I guess was the whole point, not really the camping element.
