Front door size

Can anybody with a Thomas bus tell what the dimensons of the front door is? Also if you have a pusher with the long wide emerengcy exit how big is that opening? I am going to pick up my bus soon and need to figure out this stuff. We are going to use it as a moving truck first.

I'll look at mine tonight when I get home. I'll try to post dimensions, but it's hard to navigate the site from my cellphone's mini-browser.

Mine is an '85, and it has the swing-out doors. Don't know if yours will be the same or not...

I have an '82 TransitLiner and the clear opening for the front door (air operated clamshell door) is 29"w x 82" h and for the rear emergency door, 58" w x 25" h.

Any other dimensions you need just ask.

My Thomas' front door is a center-split door of which both sides open out. The front door opening measures 28-1/2" wide by 80-1/4" high, the back door opening measures 33-1/2" wide by 57-1/4" high.

Thanks a bunch guys, now I don't have to worry about getting the washer and dryer in. I will need to measure the fridge though. If all else fails it will stay behind.
