This popular PA-18 airframe is similar to our standard wide-body fuselage option. However, this version
incorporates the Willow Mountain Ranch Lowered Floor STC. Instead of having the baggage area up off the
floor of the fuselage, the STC allows for the baggage floor to be installed
directly onto the lower longerons. This
adds 3.3 cubic feet to the baggage area and allows a 35-quart cooler to fit under
the dog leg. It also allows more room
for sleeping in the Cub. Lastly, it
reduces the weight of a standard fuselage by 4.7 lbs.
Note: Our price does not include the cost of the STC. We sell the STC paperwork for $400. For more information, please feel free to
contact us or call/email the STC owner, Ken MacDonald, at 907-495-5525 or
Finishing Note: Fuselages are shipped with the options of bare metal, prime powder coated, 1-color powder coated, or 2-color powder coated. We use an extensive FAA approved and FAA audited powder-coating process to ensure a strong and durable finish.
Shipping Note: The website cannot quote shipping on PA-18 fuselages. We put every fuselage shipment out to bid in an effort to achieve the best price for our customers. Fuselages are shipped in either a crate or on a skid with metal roll bars. The skid is lighter and usually results in a better shipping quote. The crate, however, offers more protection. The decision comes down to carrier requirements and the distance the frame needs to travel. Shipping a fuselage usually costs between $1000 and $2000.
