Hi Mike

I have a S-cargo in Australia. I was wondering if the 300kg payload meant it is able to carry 300kg in the cargo area or should that 300kg include the weight of the driver/passengers?

If you could let me know that would be great

Hey OZ-snail, I haven't been on here for a while, so I apologize for the delayed response.

There's no indication whether it's rated for just the payload, or the entire passenger and payload weight.

But essentially, I think once the back end starts to rest on the rubber stoppers by the rear torsion suspension, you've maxed it out.

Is it possible to obtain an S cargo speedometer in the UK? I am happy to import one if you can recommend a reputable source

Its great stuff with detail information about the Nissan S Cargo Van but i have been already bought 2014 E-Series Van from

There are some precautions to buy a used cargo van although it is to be cheap but if we see long term then it could be costly.
