Need help identifying this bus

Hi All! I am in the "trying to decide what bus l want" phase. I have semi narrowed it down to a handy 6-8 window. Either a dog nose, or a Ford E450 type. Both have pros/cons for me. The Ford van type l can park in my driveway, the dog nose style l can not. Either way...l came across this photo, and l really like the look, and length of this bus. It has the high roof..which is important to me. However, l didn't see any identifying description. Trying to figure out the year, model, length, and anything else l need to know...so l can start to look for these at auctions. Any input you can share would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much! ... Also, if you have a bus recommendation based on my above information, please feel free to share also. Thanks again... Brian

@EastCoastCB
With the roof bump, do you have that too? How tall does that make the interior height? How long is your five window? Thank you.
