    morning guys,

    So I'm thinking of upgrading my Renault Kangoo to a Nissan NV200 and just wanted to ask if anyone has one and what size tank you have installed and how well you have gotten on with the van :)

    Yeah I know the pay load isn't the greatest but I quite like the thought of having the extra space over my Kangoo and I only won't to fit a 500 litre tank

    yeh the space looks good, trouble is the more you have the more you find to put in it

    Why not get something transit/expert size? More space for trolleys, pressure washer, barrels etc plus a far superior payload.
    You fill up a 500L tank in a 730 payload, add your weight plus all the equipment, your getting pretty close to your limit

    I have a nv200 as a car, the wheels are quite small, if you have any work up a country track, I wouldn't recommend, as can't heighten suspension. Good as a cheap 7 seater car, but not much safety spec for passengers. Pretty good on fuel.

    Thanks for the advice guys. Been and had a look around a couple today and think you may be right Steve about getting something bigger although I did see a 62 plate Fiat Doblo that I was very impressed with not a massive van but it was very practical and modern looking and the pay load was about the same as the Nissan.

    Here we are all offering advice when we aren't told the full story. Being told all the details will give us an opportunity to answer differently. It isn't all about payload, its about the total height of the van and a carport, isn't it?

    Payload is essential, what's a car port got to do with it, and he's asking our opinions on the information he has given us, which is what we have done :thumbsup:
