The MetriVan project is a very courageous venture considering ARV's usual high quality and meticulous craftsmanship that justify higher conversion costs on top of the base price of a Metris. Even if their intention is to have an entry-level product it won't be cheap to produce at their facilities. A nationwide rental business is another challenge as mentioned in the video. I wish them good luck is pursuing this project.

I also think they should try a Westfalia layout for a full featured van like the luxurious Westfalia Jules Verne with rear bathroom. Impressive ultra-compact layout.

The link:
Jules Verne | Westfalia Mobil GmbH

Glad to see that Recon is still improving it's NV200 Camper. Just updated my Kampervan FB album with the latest Envy model photos.

Nice, great design and implementation. The Nissan NV200 (or Chevy City Express) is smaller than Metris which is about the size of old VW Bus or current VW T6. Thank you for sharing. https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/compar...is_d2200_d2348
