Hi everyone, how is everyone finding the ride in the nv200 with some weight in it? Do you have it load up full time?
I think I'm going to buy an nv200sv for hvac service, i,ll probably have 750ish lbs in it full time.
Any comments welcome.
Thanks

Hi Hero,

I am an electrical contractor using the NV200 as a spare/runabout van. It is stocked up with two shelving units that have doors and bins with material on board. Guessing about 6-700lbs of weight. What surprised me was the fact the little bugger didn't squat with that weight. The ride hasn't changed in my opinion. Still rides as nice as it did empty. Overall, I am happy with this van and have grown to really like the nimbleness over the Sprinter. Of course, nothing will ever replace my Sprinter :)

I have another thread on the subject. The shelving units are Adrian Steel.
There is also an onboard 300watt pure sine wave inverter for the cordless tool batteries not pictured along with LED overhead cargo lighting. I did alot to this van! Most recent addition are the fog lights.

Hi Hero, mine is usually driven empty or carrying light stuff.

But when it was loaded up very heavily on a recent house move I was suitably impressed, it did a lot better than expected, at one point I forgot she was loaded and I took a corner too tight in the damp and it understered a little! it was fun after I corrected. Strangely I didn't drop much on the mpg either.
