Re: Anyone shorten a bus?
Shortening to 8 window would help with fitting in short parking spaces, but won't make it corner any better. There are very few places that an 11 row can't maneuver, but cutting off the rear overhang won't make a difference there.
It seems like a lot of work just to reduce the overall length. Keep looking - 8 rows are out there. The one benefit I can see is that the longer wheelbase would make for a better ride, but only slightly better.
