If anyone has a clean Warrior, Cherokee 140 or 180 they're thinking of selling, please contact me.

Ideally, I'm looking for something in the Southeastern US (I'm in the Tampa, FL area) that I can travel to see easily and bring an A&P along; <=$40K. I'd like at least some basic IFR capability so I can get my rating.

One caveat is I have an issue with 140's and earlier 180's is staying within the forward CG range with one of my primary passengers. I'd like to at least be able to fuel to the tabs and stay in the forward CG range with 500 lbs. in the front seats.

If you have anything that fits the above, please send me a PM.

My PA-28-151 can handle 500 upfront with fuel at the tabs. Even room for some baggage (which greatly helps the w&b at this load) Is the 140 w&b different?

Yes. I assume because the 140 has ~3 ft. less stabilator than the Warrior.

Both the Warrior and Archer usually have no problem with 500 lbs. up front.
