Default Any RV's in NW Arkansas or close?

Hello,
I was wondering if there were any RVers in the NW Arkansas area? I am getting ready to start a RV-7 in a couple of weeks (Bella Vista) and I would love to have someone to ask questions to as well as just the occasional look at a finished airplane to keep me motivated.

I just relocated to NWA and have an RV-7 under construction southwest of Bentonville you could look at and discuss.

Not based there, but my wife has family in Bentonville so we fly our 9A to KVBT several weekends each year. Send me a PM if you'd like to keep in touch and I'll gladly take you for a ride next time we're down that way.

You might enjoy going by the Trutrak hanger in Springdale. I believe they have several RVs, and you could check out their products. John

Not a current RVer, but I'm also in Bella Vista and right on the cusp of starting an RV-8 build. Would be interested in keeping in touch and helping along the way if you need any.

That would be awesome. Will be nice to have an extra set of hands for those moments that you need to flip something. I appreciate it. Feel free to reach out. 505-934-3244

I lived up there for a few years and started my RV there. There is an EAA group there, if you get together with them I hope they will be helpful. I met Alan Smith and his wife Brenda through EAA. They live in the Neosho MO area and have built two RV's. They were fantastic to bounce questions off of.

What a coincidence! I'm also in Bella Vista and I'll also be starting an RV-7 in the next couple of months. I just ordered the tail kit at AirVenture and I'll be ready to start just as soon as I have the workshop set up in the back yard.

I had no idea there were this many builds happening in this area. I should have started going to the local EAA chapter meetings months ago!

Speaking of, the local one is Chapter 732 and according to their website the next meeting is 8/19 at 1300 at the Arkansas Air Museum down at KFYV. It'll be my first meeting!
