Bashing isn't intended; rather, I thought it might be easier for those looking for info on the Nissan SMB. Plug Nissan into the SMB search and you get... well, you'll see. Most SMB forums relate to 4x4 and Fords, and threads seem to work their way in that direction as well. There is one for Sprinters, which I found helpful when we considered one, new and used. Still, I read just about everything posted and glean what I can. What works for one may work for another camper van or slide in.
Another thought about the Nissan NV: It is one of the worst promoted vehicles ever, unless I'm not reading the right "white van" journals
SMB also has not promoted it well. According to the Dubin, CA, dealer, Alan built up a high top NV and shopped it around. 8 dealers sell them. I have no idea how many were built, maybe 12? 2 sold? In a way, I'm caught in the middle of a gap between SMB Fresno and Nissan. An example is not getting the after purchase SMB report card. Not that important in the long run as SMB will deal with problems related to the conversion and Nissan theirs; however, Nissan customer services couldn't answer my questions about NV recalls. There are 3 pending recalls, air bags, oil filter/cooler bracket bolt and the rear door latch. Only the rear door latch applies to my VIN #, according to the local NV dealer. The latch will be fixed next oil change.
