I believe N891JF was built per the plans, with gear leg castings as close as possible to the fuselage. This yielded an airplane that just barely fits into the back of a typical U-Haul truck....a consideration that can be very important if (when) you need to take advantage of it!

N56ML's castings were located considerably further out the spar to give it a wider stance, but it always craps out near home, so I just replace the tailwheel with a trailer hitch and tow it home on its wheels, which can be very convenient. Not sure how that would work towing a thousand miles though!
