My brother didn't sell his house so he could move into a RV to travel, he sold it because him and his wife didn't need a three story plus partial basement 100+ year old historic house for two people. He bought it at auction in 91 for a song and did all the restoration himself paying it for it as he went. He called it his 401(k). He multiplied his total investment multiple times over. They just bought 10 acres with a double wide sitting on a recreational lake so they could have a base when they weren't traveling. They however have established residency in Florida for the tax advantages and they spend more than half their time down there any way.

I would like to see Saito do a twin based on the FG-40 geometry.

Put a pair of 12 mm FA-220 carburetors on it & it would really howl with 30% nitro!

So the FG 90 would fly the 168 rascal with authority but not as good as a da 100. Overall it would be a good fit. I just think that the 100 would be overkill even for me.
I think? Maybe

I got a travel trailer, a Coleman 274 BH, which is a bunkhouse model. Sleeps up to 6. I paid $14K for it and pull it behind my F150 Ecoboost. I get about 8 MPG. My 8 day trip from Rockford Il to Bryce Canyon and back cost me about $1400 for gas for two vehicles, camping spots in 3 states for each night, and food. Fuel was the biggest expense, about twice what I would have used if I just drove the truck to Bryce and back, but motel/hotel costs alone would have easily surpassed the $1400 I spent for the entire trip. I would have needed at least two rooms, maybe three for the 5 of us depending on what could be found, and the one place I did look into at the Grand Canyon was over $2500 for a 3 night stay. With gas and food it would have easily been a $4000 vacation. We have also done 2 overnight weekend trips, the first one cost me a half tank of gas and $25 for the site. The last one was further away, so two tanks of gas and $30 for the site. With the trailer we carry and cook our own food as if we were at home, and that is what saves a ton of cash.

State and Federal parks are inexpensive to stay at, but if you want a full hook up with water, electric and waste dump for an extended stay, an RV park is the place to go, but they are triple the cost to stay at. What I prefer a trailer over an RV for is when unhooked I can drive the truck wherever I want, where an RV you have to break camp and trundle around in a huge box.

I haul a 24' Trailsport with a 2016 Toyota Highlander & get 12.3 average MPG pulling it. I live on the Northern edge of the Adirondack so I can head out for short 3-4 day jaunts for less than $150 when staying at NYS campgrounds which go for around $20 a night. I set up within 75' of water hydrants to keep my fresh water tank filled. I have a 30 gallon portable tote tank to keep my gray water tank emptied. It has a loop that goes over the hitch ball so I can drag it to the dump station every couple of days. I have a 2500W Honda generator to refresh the batteries & we don't need air conditioning in the mountains.

On methanol it would be close to DA-100 power.

I have already sold some of my excessive stock of glow engines and some non-saito unmentionables. And have a few more to unload and I will be close. So a bank job won't be necessary I just might have to break in to the kids piggy banks.

That is so cool.
The thing that gets me is there are model airplanes out there with more power. Crazy

The Zenith CH 750 Cruzer was introduced at Sunín Fun and was flown to the show by Zenith Aircraft Company president Sebastien Heintz (1,000 miles from the factory in Missouri). The prototype demonstrator aircraft is equipped with the UL350iS 130-hp fuel-injected UL-Power engine and the latest Dynon SkyView glass panel display system. As equipped, the aircraft weighs 780 lbs., providing a useful load of 540 lbs. at the 1,320 lbs. LSA gross weight limit. Cruise speed is 118 mph, rate of climb is 1,200 fpm, and stall speed is 39 mph. The new design utilizes the same firewall as the STOL CH 750 and the low-wing Zenith CH 650, meaning existing firewall-forward engine packages are readily available including the Continental O-200, Rotax 912 series, Viking (Honda), Jabiru, Corvair, and others.

I'd build this kit if I were rich.

You have kids? Hmm.... I wonder what you could get by leasing them out to the salt mines or as field hands? No reason they can't pull their own weight! ;-)

Probably not most wives are so narrow minded when it comes to kids they can look thru a keyhole with both eyes.
