I've looked at all of the cargo vans on the market and I don't need a tall height one or anything real fancy. I found a NV1500 for $15K, no shelving in the back so I need to add them.

So tell me if you have the Nissan how you like it.
I have the 2500 HT. Mechanically solid. I don't tow so 6cyl works for me and keep about 11-1200 lbs of Tools permanently in truck. Maybe 1500lbs with all custom fit out racking. Bumper to bumper is 20' so no problem parking in any legal spot unless your in the City like I. Gas milage good: City 11-13. Only on hwy few times a yr but it gets up to 20-24.
I got rid of 2 sprinters for nv. Lost 5" from rear door to bulkhead which is 3/4" ply it still holds 10' but as you get above 6-7" bulkhead gets in way you can go higher just need to cut out bulk head to clear stacking. Does not bother me because I get 95% of everything delivered by boom or moffet. I did add 10 or 12ft hot dip galv rack on roof with ladder. It's ideal for me especially when we close out jobs and there are CPL of boards Left over just strap on roof and return to my supplier on next delivery which average 2x'week. Also clear out trash from jobs through out the job to save time and keeps space open rather then letting it build up till end and goes in back to Shop were I have 2/yrd dumpster. Overall I can't complain. I run 2-3 jobs at a time out if it. Never really haul employees around. They all take train or bus or ride there bikes to job. I only hire guy's that can use train system and jobs are staged with tough box tstak and turned over at every phase so I only need 1/van. It takes a Nice Chunk of OH off my plate by not having 2nd van and more importantly no headaches of 2nd van. Maintenance: I'm getting my 2nd oil change over Xmas. I have nv for 2/yrs this Xmas and just rolled 10,000. My work / live space is generally a 2 mile radius. Warranty is 5/yrs i think? on major drive train. Overall a real solid value compared to other HT and the best Price. Substantiality less the rest. Not sure if they still have business finance promo but look in to it. Mine retailed for 32k walked off lot at 24k. Good luck

Well I found a van I liked and had to work on the deal for over a week to get the dealer to drop the price to my liking. Walking out on the dealer does work sometimes in order to get their attention. I picked up a 2013 Chevy Express 2500.
