Help! Before I lose my MiNd!!!

Okay. I'm about to lose my mind trying to find the interior dimensions of a 1998 International 72 passenger bus! Can anyone give me a round about figure?

We're considering purchasing one, but need to know if it'll work with size needs.

Thank you so much!!!

Did you Google "1999 international bus dimensions" and look at the images?

It's a d3800 international with a 444e Diesel engine. That's about all I know.

Yes, I googled everything, hence the mind loss! Lol! Please don't tell me you found something on your first try. I googled as many different ways as I could find.

I have the same bus as you (1998 Intl 3800 w/BB coachworks) but with a DT466 engine. As soon as it gets light, I'll measure whatever you want. Give me a list!

In case it's not clear from the above, there are a zillion configurations.

International started it. Who did the body work (e.g., Bluebird, IC, Thomas)?

Buses come in three common types: engine out front ("Conventional"), flat front with engine next to driver (Front Engine), engine behind ("pusher" or Rear Engine).

Because of this, plus the different options available (all sorts), you get brain freeze trying to research this - which you've experienced. But it also means you have to be very, very specific when asking here. By doing so, however, you can sometimes find someone with nearly or exactly the same bus. Looks like you lucked out with Mr. Coyote - who has a tape measure and stands at the ready. Well, tomorrow, anyway. But you might describe for him in greater detail what you are investigating, if possible, to ensure his numbers will be useful to you.

THANK YOU! My brain is spinning. I'm just glad we finally decided on a bus instead of a motorhome. It took us a long time, but know that we decided, it feels right. The husband told me to gather all the data and draw out the plans and he'll do all the work. Easier said than done!
