Default Any alternative to Europa XS?

I am looking for a design with: 100-120hp engine, 600lbs plus useful
load AND the baggage room for the load capacity, 130miles plus
cruising speed. The useful load should be the real one already in use,
not on paper.

Seems Europa XS meets these requirement and can be much faster, though
the useful load could be less based on most completed ones' empty
weight(about 100lbs heaiver than the company's data). Murphy Rebel
seems another option with even more useful load but it's way too slow.

Does anyone have any other such designs in mind? Thank you.

The Bearhawk Patrol (Bob Barrows' new 2 seat design). You may need a
bigger engine to get the speed, but I don't know.

G'day Sheen


The Jabiru made in Australia would fit exactly what you need.

Check out their site or contact me for info.
