I know, I know... Twin Bonanza. Let me start by saying that I probably don't need a twin. Feel free to talk me out of it. I'd like to keep the purchase price below $200,000, around $175,000 would be preferable. The 75% mission would be 210 lb me, 120 lb wife, a 70 lb dog and luggage from the Phoenix area to Austin, TX (~800 NM). I could get to 90% with the addition of these two trips: The 400 lbs of people above and luggage from PHX-DEN (~550 NM over/around the Rockies) Four adults (780 lbs-ish) and luggage to Vegas (~300 NM) For responsible me and the 75% solution, I'm thinking Turbo Saratoga. We owned a PA-32-300 before and really liked the roomy cabin. For the devil-may-care/you can't take it with you 90% approach my wish list would be a Seneca II/III or C-310Q/R. FIKI would be nice and the wife really (really) wants club seating. I was really leaning towards the Seneca II because I thought that would fit all that I wanted to do until I did a little more research and found that the IIs have a Max Zero Fuel Weight of 4,000 lbs. With EWs around hovering 3,300 lbs, I wouldn't be able to do the 4-adult trips no matter how much fuel I leave off. I've read that the Seneca IIIs have an increased MZFW, but I couldn't find what that number is or what the EWs would be. I also couldn't find if the C-310s had any such ZFW limit. So, I throw my question to all you much-more-knowledgeable folks to steer me in the right direction.
