Building a Case for the RV-Super Cub ...updated 9/9 14Z
...a document in progress (feedback last several pages).  If you feel the same let me know - I'll add it.

Spotlighted Feedback:

"... if Van's offered a (preferably) tandem, 2 seat, bush geared, Super Cub replacement, I would almost certainly order one sight unseen!​ Not to replace the RV-8, but to fulfill the low and slow sightseeing/back country exploring that are so appealing." --Jon Farley   RV-8 N518RT

"...I love this type of flying. I would want to own, promote, fly a Van's product like this if it was available." -- Jay Pratt RV-8/6

"I will always be a Vans loyalist and I will agree that they should try their hand at a more utilitarian model.​" --Dave Farmer

"...I stand in line with you on the RV cub! I built Crazy Woman (now at 52F!) and now building another-8... If Vans comes out with a -15 Cub, Ill order the kit yesterday!
-- Thomas Henderson RV-8

"...I would still consider a high wing RV and put my S-21 on hold." --Vern Little RV-9A

"...I've been flying an RV-9A for nearly 10 years now......If I knew Van's was heading that direction, I may be in front of you in line for the tail kit."
-- Carl Raichle

"...My vote goes for 'RV Super Cub'." -- Vlad RV-9A

"If Vans offered a product in that genre, it would be a no-brainer for me. That would be my next build.​" --mwardle7 (RV-12 flying)

..I've been ready to build another aluminum riveted high wing for some time, I'd really like it to be from the RV family. -- Bud Smith RV-8 (dbuds2 on VAF)

NEW  "Ready to start a backcountry ship. Release that Vans unit or Ill be forced to build one from brand X!"  -- Blain Stumpf RV-8 N82ST
