Default Any RV-7/7A's near Stuart FL (KSUA)?

Greetings folks,

I am new to the forum, and new to the VANs world. Seriously considering a RV-7A, but I am 6'2", so would like to check the cockpit size prior to jumping into the deep end.

So, if anyone has an RV7/7A in reasonable proximity to Stuart, FL, I would love to sit in a cockpit for a few minutes to "try it on for size".

Feel free to PM, or email at:
cm banz at yahooo dot com (all one work and correct the spelling),
or text at (three oh five) four three two, four seven six zero.

Many thanks in advance.
Mike

My son is 6' 3" and he flys my RV7a with now problem. It's the slider. Not sure if that makes a difference.
You are welcome to come try it out, though I am in Wisconsin. But I haven't listed it yet, but I am putting it up for sale soon.

I had a guy who was very tall, wide and heavy and had to fly in my 6 so I took out all of the seat padding. we had a blast but will not do it again.
