Wouldn't you then be catching road debris (Paper, dust, rubber) into the pipe and even with a screen, that will be covered and thus restrict the airflow?

I'll be sure to call Blue Bird right away and tell them they should move that to a new spot so when someone buys the bus in 10-20 years after it's useful life as a bus is over, it won't interfere with their plans for the master bedroom. I don't know how they could be so thoughtless and not take into consideration that you paid a few thousand bucks for this hundred thousand dollar piece of machinery and now you have to MOVE IT.

you would need to move it to rear or front, unless you can go oval and then up the side like you mention, only way to go over 96" or 102" wide is with safety equipment tho'

Since it is just air intake; cover the engine with a platform and make storage underneath sleep platform and then make that corner a cabinet and leave stock parts where they are

also allow for engine maintenance through bed platform w/o destroying everything

Where do you think front engine buses get their engine air from?

No different.

I drive a rear engine bus everyday. I just told you how bad they are in my previous post.

Under the bus to the front would be best.

Up the back to the top of the bus would be second best and ugly if not done right.

I'm doing external air cleaner cans like big rigs have, laying down.

Looks like nostrils.

One side will be my cabin air, the other will be the engine air intake.

well that ductwork looks like it is over the engine bay, that's where I'm putting a closet area on my re Thomas. Mine doesn't have the ductwork yours does, but I wouldn't put the corner of my bed that high anyway
