Default Good choice going RV

I moved to an RV after owning and flying a Warrior for a number of years. You're going to love the upgrade.

People here, me among them, love to debate which model is best for which mission. You can learn a lot from the debates. But honestly I don't think you can go far wrong. I bought a used RV-9A and love it but I'm pretty sure I'd be as happy with any of the other side-by-sides. The differences among RVs pale in comparison to the differences between RVs and 172s/Warriors/etc.

I also suspect I'd love any of the tandems - and in fact I think the -8 taildragger is hands-down the best looking RV (donning my asbestos flight suit.....). But side-by-side was the one requirement of my Significant Other, who is an enthusiastic flier. So that was easy to agree to.

Good luck!

I believe in goodness, I believe in doing the right thing, and I believe in working hard to make the world a better place. I also believe I want to build an RV! I am unsure of which model, however I am leaning towards the 14. I would like to here the thoughts of others who have flown or owned the 14, especially as compared to the other models. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Rick.
