I think I have finally narrowed my search down to a Cessna 182. I've been looking for P and Q models, but the prices are pretty high. So I found an older model with low airframe hours, midtime engine (~900), and a new glass panel. My concern is how much am I really missing between say an F model and a P. I know there's the tube steel landing gear with 150 extra useful. I would like more useful for my longer trips, just not sure how often I will truly fly 400 mile flights with full seats. Even then is a fuel stop in the middle that big of a deal for the rare occasion I do? Maybe I'm placing too much weight (pun intended) on my 5% mission. Second the airplane is from the midwest and sat for 15 years or so. It was purchased, refreshed, and returned to service a year or two ago with approximately 200 hours since. Am I asking for trouble or has the time since and a good pre-buy limited that concern a bit?
