Hi all,

First time post so apologies if this has been covered already but haven't have much luck with searching on google or able to confirm the conversion is definitely a passenger vehicle. I am in the market for a Nissan NV200 in the UK and currently looking at getting the 7 seat passenger vehicle and convert to a camper saving me the hassle with the windows I want adding in and the spec of the vehicle I have found matches what I want. I have been to look at a one and seen that the 2nd row seats are on a metal base plate and bolted in. Can anyone please advise if this is definitely the case and it isn't welded in?

I am happy to remove this base plate if it is just bolted int take the 2nd and 3rd row of seats out. Has anyone got any photos of this being done or a passenger vehicle converted into a camper?

Thanks very much :)

Hi, ive literally just taken seats out of my NV over the weekend. Yes, the base plate is removable using the same size bolts as the seats. Simple job, however the bolts need to be replaced once out as they leave holes in the floor. The carpet fitting has a gap in also. I got round this by lining the now empty floor with interlocking rubber matting.

Excellent thanks very much for your detailed response hopefully manage to get the right deal for this vehicle and can start stripping it out.

Are you converting yours to a camper?

Hi glad it was a help. No not a camper, although I will def use it for camping. I've stripped out to hold transit creates for my dogs. Could have probs left second row of seats in but took them out to maximise space and will look to use for stealth camping. ??

Hope you're conversion goes well!

Excellent sounds like a good plan, A stealth camper is always a good option especially if your wild camping in the U.K. I have used a Mini Clubman last year and that was a ideal stealth camper as everyone thought that theirs no way 2 adults can sleep in the back of that.

Good luck with your conversion too and I will post pics once I have sourced the right NV :)

HI

So far I have removed the rear right 2nd row and and rear 3rd row seat and they came out very easy (when using a good socket set) and no sign of them being welded in. I have left the left hand side seats as a temporary base while I save for a rock and roll bed and work on the rest of the van.

The seats in the second row bolt to the base plate and can be added back in easy enough I haven't removed the base plate yet but no sign of welding.

When you remove the single bolt holding the single seat (second row) is there a bolt underneath that will fall off, or is there a permanent threaded hole that will allow the seat to be easily replaced please?
