you have already got a better all-around airplane right now, 58 !
Hmm... Maybe Jomac can explain his logic. I don't mean to start an argument or in any way dimmish 182's. They are fine airplanes, I owned one for 10 years and really enjoyed it. It took me all over the US Canada and Alaska and made many Idaho camping trips.
A bearhawk is also a great airplane and will do everything a 182 will do plus more. It will get in and out of shorter/rougher strips, carries more useful load & will do it easier, can do positive g airbatic maneuvers, is a new airplane (how old is the average 182 fleet?), can be upgraded with all the new avionics, can use experimental avionics (better yet), can be put on skis & floats, the builder can do his own condition inspections, no STC's are needed for modifications, etc.
Perhaps because Bearhawks are relatively new, not many have seen them or understand what they are.
Now I've ignored building vs buying certified issues and experimental vs certified AC in general, but a 182 is NOT a better all around airplane in my not so humble opinion.
And yes I may be a bit biased since I fly a Bearhawk, but like I said I used to own a 182 and know both planes well.
