mmm... does the difference between the blue bird tc2000 and the All American chassis make it impossible to transfer your build over by using it like a blueprint? you're more than formidable work is only surpassed by your generous documentation of it. but the possible height difference concerns me first off. i think the A-A ends up being a foot taller out of the factory even going back to 1990, but I hope I'm wrong.

i'm hoping not as well, but the latest blue bird A-As are 10'6" and they don't mention any greater headroom.
In fact, i thought most large skoolies were about 10'6" high (before modification).


Vlad's 2 foot raise to 11'6" would make his 9'6" from the factory.

A high headroom bus may have 4" over a regular.
Mines no BB but its only 9 foot something tall. It has about 6'1- 6'2 from the factory.

That's odd, My AmTran is 10'6" from the factory. Wonder why yours is shorter?
