Default “SHACK” Smokey

Good call Billy Joe Ray Bob!

As a -4 owner/builder and having been an RV guy now since 1996 (saw my first -4 at OSH 1984 and WANTED ONE!), I’m noticing a BIG uptick in RV-4 LUV! In my Airpark alone there has been 4 RV-4 purchases in the last year. However I advice builder wanna-be’s to BUILD a RV-7 or 8 because the kits are sooooo much ‘easier’ (a ridiculous term I agree). Having owned all three but only built a four, there is no doubt the -4 flies better ‘as a pilot’ than the others and I know several ‘other’ RV drivers that have migrated back to the -4 for the ‘look’ and the ‘feel’. In my humble opinion if Vans were to build an ‘easy’ (-er) -4 kit the masses would build it. There is still a market for ‘sport’ flying and as I’m seeing -4 prices in Barnstormers and TradeAPlane going North........why not Vans?
