And it begins.....

Greetings one and all. A couple questions for you all. I searched and found some answers but not all.

1. Lets stick with a 1999 Bluebird for this question. Which has more interior, useable room. FE, RE or dognose?
2. Same vehicle, best gearing for highway use. Lets go with a DT-466, automatic. I am in Montana so there is plenty of going up and going down.
3. Easiest for maintenance would be a dognose, I am guessing?
4. Less wheel humps would be a dognose, correct?

In brief, we are a gospel quartet thinking about going this route. Dont want an entertainer, for many reasons. Thought about a shuttle bus but again too much money and will be too cramped. This seems to be the best bang for the buck. We have access to good buses here and very well priced.

I drove school bus from 1990-1999, all Bluebird with the DT-360 or the 9 litre. So your answers can skip the non-school bus familiar answers.

Thanks for all your input........

Maybe this should be in a different part of the forum?

Re: And it begins.....

I have wondered about general questions also, where would you put this thread?
