Vans have covered pretty much everything most would ever need apart from say a bush plane but the market is already flooded with same.
Bang for buck you can't beat a Vans especially a proper one, conventional U/C -)

Is the X in XV for eXtreme ?

I made that chart off the Wikipedia pages for the planes, going by date of introduction, not date of first flight. I made it to be a general reference to when new models tend to have come out as I've never seen a timeline like that anywhere; it's not necessarily 100% accurate.

Looking at the Wayback Machine it seems that BOTH the -7 and -9 started being sold in the first couple months of 2001. If you have a more-accurate list of exact dates of when kits first started selling then I'd be happy to update it accordingly

You are correct about the introduction date of the RV-9, because the tail dragger version was introduced a couple years after the 9A tri-gear (initially there was no plan to offer a tail dragged version).
