Interior dimensions - Wayne bodies

Calling all Wayne owners:

I'm interested in converting a Wayne skoolie and am looking for info for planning ahead (to develop the interior design and to buy the right bus for my plans).

What is the interior ceiling height (standard, before roof raising)?
What is the interior width?
What is the typical on-center space between the "studs" (middle on either side of window)? I know window width can vary, but average can be a useful guide.
How high is the window sill above the floor?
How wide is the main entry door? Emergency door?
What is the length x width x hight of the rear wheel housings?

I already have info on chassis length, body length behind cowl, and wheelbase.

If you own another brand but wish to answer anyway, you're welcome to do so, but I'm especially interested in hearing about older Waynes (both Lifeguard and ca. 1970 pre-Lifeguard models).

Re: Interior dimensions - Wayne bodies

Update: since posting this question, I found a Wayne brochure on eBay, showing that the Lifeguard body was available with 6'-1" and 6'-5" ceiling heights. Comparing the illustrations with what I've seen on the road, most have the lower ceiling. Another catalog from 1968 indicates that the high-ceiling model used to have a generous 6'-7" height (Again, a rare model).

Incidentally, my avatar is an altered photo showing a standard Lifeguard with a virtual roof raise with about six to eight inches added above the windows.

I would still appreciate feedback from Wayne owners regarding the other dimensions. If I get more info myself, I'll be sure to post it.
