Not an outstanding bus, except note the rear storage and two midship escape hatches.e.

Maybe it's just me that's never seen this configuration before.

FWIW- folks, avoid buses from Cleveland Texas. They totally don't maintain them worth a darn and are downright rude folks to deal with.
I've learned this the expensive, difficult way.

Maybe we could have a thread of "sellers to avoid"???

At this point I'm really wondering why the bus mechanic was so rude about that bus. He should have been happy to see that one go on down the road.

To be fair, the coolant leak sprung up when the bus was in my possession. I literally watched it as it happened.

A mechanic wouldn't care, he'd just spend an afternoon and fix it.

Maybe he wanted the bus. Maybe he or a friend were one of the other bidders.
Who knows. But the school still hasn't gotten back to me about the maintenance history or any of that.

HORRIBLE school to buy a bus from, folks!
