Re: Looking for a short bus

Don't be so sure that a larger one won't fit. I have driven some school buses into areas that can be a little tight getting in to and managing to turn them around with a little 10 foot trailer behind it that you can only see out the back window when backing up. Overall the bigger ones are not that much different than the shorter ones. I'd say you should think about how much time you are going to spend inside it and figure out how much room you will need for everything you want inside it. Mine is a international bluebird body and 25 foot. (no it's not for sale) I will also ask what size are you thinking?

If you wanted one simular to the two chevys posted above (#2 and #3) it is too bad you didn't come here looking 2 months ago cause the company I work for was getting rid of a 1993 chevy with a 350 with about 175000 miles on it which ended up going to the boneyard for a few hundred bucks and it ran good. It's only problem was the transmission was starting to not shift right sometimes and the speedo was off. It was a carpenter body with a front lift door and no back door and no ac.

Re: Looking for a short bus

I've run my bus through places in the woods the pickup trucks were having trouble with. It's all about driving technique and picking your lines correctly.
