If your primary use is going to be a 420 mile trip three times a month you might look at the RV9 or 9A. It designed for cross country flying. Since it has a different wing than 6 or 7 it actually cruises a little faster on less fuel using the IO320. Of course my true preference is the 14 because of the roomier cockpit.
Just a thought.
