The Avid MK IV was sort of the last model Avid built, and is quite similar to a Kitfox 3, but with 1150 gross weight. Plane is just over 600 lb empty. 14 gallon wing tanks in both wings. I've had my Avid since 2008, plane has about 615 hrs on it, about 135 SMOH. Engine is 80 HP Jabiru engine. In 2017, I completely rebuilt the plane and have been flying it for about 135 hrs since. Would be more hrs on it, but I finished my Kitfox 4 and have flown that more in the last yr and a half. Cabane style landing gear built by Lowell Fitt. I widened the fuselage by 3" when I rebuilt it, so it's 42 1/2" wide. You don't have to like the person quite so much that you give a ride to. Have a modified boat trailer for it as well. Price is $27,500 with trailer. I did a walk around video of it yesterday, and put that up on youtube. Couple of flying videos from the day before. Located in northern Mn. If you are serious and want more info, call me. 218 seven five zero 38 five one. Anyway, here are links to the videos. JImChuk

Here is the trailer that goes with the Avid Flyer. I remodeled a boat trailer last summer, and painted it out this week. Now doing lights and winch. JImChuk

Couple of days ago, I made a video of loading the Avid Flyer on the trailer. Friday evening, I did some fun flying up a remote river near where I live. I posted a video of that on utube last night. Here they are if anyone is interested. JImChuk

I got a chance to try out the new trailer a couple of days ago. Went with a friend and picked up a similar sized plane for him. Put on just about 600 miles all told. That trailer pulls so nice. Like we were just driving the Honda Pilot by it's self, loaded or empty. I put new wheel bearings in the trailer last summer, and so should be good for a long time to come.
