An American NV200 Campervan from Recon-Campers

21 Jul

With what looks like a choice of interiors, this range of 2.0 litre Petrol , NV200 camper vans from US based Recon-Campers have some interesting features.


Solar chargers cope with long periods of remote camping whilst winter conditions allow the use of snow chains. Not often seen in the UK  (but sold at Aldi, periodically) , snow chains are compulsory in some EU countries under certain conditions. I presume that the photo within the review indicates the year round capability.

If I recall correctly the 2.0 litre petrol versions achieve only 26 mpg (US gallon) highway which is heralded as very good over the pond but which I think is quite poor. There must be some reason why the use of the Renault 1.5DCI turbo diesel offering around 53 mpg (UK gallon) was not used. The 110ps on offer with the 1.5 litre engine is well up the job.

What super , compact campervans from Recon ! No way that the current exchange rate allows for an economical import though.
