I am currently looking at what base model NV200 to start with for a campervan conversion. What is best to start with? Van, combi or 7 seater? The combi and 7 seater are more appealing with the extra windows but is it a harder conversion?

It will be a gradual conversion with bed and storage at first. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

See my blog for a build on NV200.
Depends on the finish you want. Van is clean sheet. Tekna well spec'd. Combi has all rear windows, but you may want to block, but also has trim & roof - so makes some things easier. So - depends....


Also - for us - bed was critical to design - see blog and my youtubes for some ideas. Bed needs to be custom made to be efficient, and depends on whether you want loo etc.
Hope this is a starting point

From what I've been told, the 7-seater MPV has higher-specs, like passenger air bag, air con, alloys, and higher quality trim. It also can have the lift-up tailgate, which I could see being more useful for shelter. The MPV already has windows so will save the cost of installing one or more.

At a guess, the MPV will also have floor rails for the seats, which add could add flexibility in a camper.
It also doesn't have a bulkhead, so there is no work to do removing one.

Personally, I quite like the idea of a folding bulkhead or cage behind the driver for privacy and safety, especially when camping in stealth mode.

One other thing has been on my mind, and that is that a refrigerated base van might mean that there is much less work to do for a quick camper...not only is the insulation and finish excellent, but it would only require covering in carpet, so much less time and labour would be needed to get to something usable.
