I thought that this was the FIRST RV-1. Apparently not. There are 170 others before this one, lurking out there just waiting to be discovered ...
Dang - that is a question I keep meaning to ask Van! Someone should have brought that one up on the Webinar.....I have reviewed all the documents, and haven't come up with an obvious answer yet....
The original Stits serial number was 8555...so no clues there!
