Do this thing fast. We are getting younger! Thank you.
How are you accomplishing this? Many of us want to know.

I wonder if, and stay with me here, Vans could offer modular options.
It seems like Kitfox lets you order the "7" in 3 different flavors. I was about to pull the trigger on one (getting in the 2 year line, that is) but now that the 15 is coming out I hear my 4 whispering for me to stay in the family.

I love mine, it also doubles as a collar bone breaking machine which I'm sure is a downside for some.
Well, there are many iterations of carrying things on (or inside) small aircraft. I once carried a craftsman 1/2HP air compressor in the back of my RV4 with the seat removed and occasionally a fold up bike. My Six-X easily carried two full size MTN Bikes (wheels removed) and a grandson in a bolted in carseat!
Having spent quite a bit of time in AK I can assure you there are no end of creative minds strapping or carrying things to austere places. I once witnessed a piano being loaded into a Cherokee 6! Many of the users on the Maule forum have creative ideas on carrying things as well, having a M5 of my own I can attest to it's utility.
That said, here are a few ideas Van will have to take into consideration for the RV15/16:
Modest suggestion for Van's - if you do provide provisions for external equipment or supporting specific things inside, please make those provisions removable. That way there's a chance for people to make attachments for other things or just clean things up to save weight and drag.
