Bus Heights & Widths by Model?

Hey Skoolies!!

We have officially gotten word after a year of waiting, that we will be buying a bus in August! Not sure when exactly, just waiting on a check to come within the next 3 weeks. We are looking for a 40'+ pusher with a tall body for between $3-4k. Found a beautiful Thomas on CL with pass through belly boxes but it got scooped the same day I called.

Here's my question:

I know Thomas and Blue Bird both have tall bodies, and the Thomas bus heights are indicated by the roof line, but what about BB? Are there any external indicators?

Also, if you have a big BB or Thomas, can you post your model, year, interior dimensions (floor to ceiling in the center and on the side, back of bus to back of drivers seat), and total vehicle length?

I saw pictures of a 90 pass BB today, but I haven't a clue how tall it is or how long!

Re: Bus Heights & Widths by Model?

Mine is a Thomas 72 pass, witch is 34 ft long.

From the drivers seat back I have 29 ft.
Center height is 78" along the sides is 70"

I know each row of seats = 6 pass and 28 3/4".

I received a copy of the floor plan of a 84 pass Thomas bus if you would like a copy. It has all the measurements.

Anyone know how to tell if a blue bird is a tall body or not?

They make this thing called a tape measure.

All I know is the Thomas is 6' 3" at door and has a bump-up if tall and a bump-down if short. I have not seen this on a Bluebird.
