    Nissan NV ?'s

    Can someone that owns a NV take a couple of strange measurements for me, lol.

    First, I'd like to know what is the seating DEAPTH of the back seats?
    Second, can someone measure where you sit, to the floor?

    These sound weird but, I have a 6'4" DH and my first 3 boys are HUGE!!! Our 2011 Ford E350 gives tons of legroom, so I'm comparing.

    Also...while the console looks great, I LOVE being able to get between the two fronts seats. I walk to the a back of my van daily. I'm just a little under 5'. So any thoughts on that?

    My Ford has 11 top tethers!! And bench seats enable you to scoot the car seats over to the sides. The the big boys actually get a little extra room that way, so that worries me with the NV. I have 3 RFing in my van most the time. Does the NV fit RFing seats in ALL the rows?

    So far I have RFed a Pria, MR, Rxt with AA, Blvd, advocate, and cco. I can fit these seats in EVERY location of my van. And just a fun fact, because I know you guys like this stuff.... I can fit 3 RFing MRs across my 1st bench!!!! LOL.

    Anyway, I guess I'm nervous that if I trade my van, I'll gain headrest, but loose everything else I love.Thoughts welcome.

    Thanks for reading my giant post...i have lots of rambling thoughts on this I guess.

    Are the headrests the only reason you're considering trading in?

    Kinda of...I seen your headrest. That's a great idea. I could always try that. The NV also has curtain air bags. I really would prefer a sprinter, but the NV pulls more. The NVs are just more SUV luxury looking on the inside witch is appealing. But they don't look as roomy as my Ford?

    With 6 kids,plus any more that I'll have.....I need space. Not extras I guess. I'm going to try and find one In person to look at. No one here has them though.

    I haven't seen any pricing information yet. I currently have a 2012 Sprinter and will look at this as well when it comes out.

    Hey, that's neat. And kinda ugly . Being Ford, it's probably carseat-friendly though. I had pegged the NV as our next vehicle, whenever the Express dies, but this is one to keep an eye on too.

    I just got an nv, we have radians rear facing in each row, i think the angle adjuster is needed in the last row as i believe the 4th row is slightly closer to the 3rd than the other rows are to each other. And as far as the console goes, we got the basic model and it doesn't have one (it also doesn't have all those lights for each row). I believe it is the s, then there is an sl and sv.
