Nissan Roadtrek's are just plain ugly

I just can't see these things catching on.

Looks beautiful to me.
Wait till you do some serious work on your engine.
I wish my 7.3L had a nose like that.

Nothing that a visit to U-Joint and Aluminess couldn't fix.

Re: Nissan Roadtrek's are just plain ugly

I saw my first Promaster yesterday - very briefly - running up 8th Avenue here in New York City. At least, that's my best guess from the brief glimpse I got. Pretty sure that's what it was.

Re: Nissan Roadtrek's are just plain ugly

That's VERY badass, and the Nissan Roadtrek above looks better than previous models of the Nissan too. Looks like they've refined the front a bit and the wheels help out.

Re: Nissan Roadtrek's are just plain ugly

I'll throw in another vote for these being hideous vehicles. They look like stretch Scion SB's. Lot's of usable space, because they're basically an extended box with wheels and an engine. Not a fan... but I could see the appeal...., I guess

Re: Nissan Roadtrek's are just plain ugly

I saw both the roadtrek and SMB at the Pomona rv show last year and thought the Roadtrek to just be a novelty. The SMB was a real camper. Both about the same price. No van is good looking but I love mine just the same.
