Interior measurements on a 10-11 window Thomas flat nose?

Hello All,

We are currently looking for a 30' ish Thomas flat nose. From what I can tell reading other posts on here 10-11 windows behind the driver should equal about a 30-32' bus is that right? I'm wondering how much interior length there is behind the driver seat on a 10-11 window thomas flat nose so I can use those measurements for layout purposes. Anyone here have a bus like that that can share measurements?

Thanks in advance!

On a Thomas, 10 windows and a flat front would be approximately 25 feet behind the driver seat and 29/30 feet overall.

Mine is a 2002 Thomas Front Engine and is 30 feet bumper to bumper. Interior is 26.5 from behind the drivers seat, maybe 26 for someone with slightly longer legs than me. Mine is also considered a "High Roof" 6'6" measured in the middle. And that is without removing the floor and replacing with probably going for 1 1/2 inches floor. Wall to wall is 7' 6".

Thanks, that is very helpful. That size may be just a bit tight for us. I guess this means an 11 window would be about 2.5' longer that might be just the right size for our floorpan.

I'm hoping maybe someone has an 11 window with measurements so I can compare the two!

Our bus is a 1998 Bluebird TC2000 front engine bus with 11 windows. Seven of the windows are 28” long and three are 32” long.

There is 28ft-4” behind the driver to the back door inside. And width is 7ft 8-1/2” wide inside
And bumper to bumper is almost 34’ long.

Outside height is 10 ft tall. With added accessories I managed to keep it under 11ft. In height.

I've got 9 windows and they're all the same size in a 26' FE. That's about as medium as you can get.

Calibus,

If you are referring to mine yes, 10 windows on drivers side and 8 on the passenger side due to handicap lift in the rear.
