School buses are narrower than some coaches. Some coaches are 96 inches like school buses. The others coaches are 102"

So we're talking 6" difference maximum? Technically I guess that's a legitimate concern although not substantiated in my opinion. Weren't coaches full of old people burning in Florida on the freeway a few years ago? Not a good image for coaches.

AARP Hardford insurance

Ok I know that there are a whole lot of younger folks on here and that is amazing, but my question is more directed at the over 50 crowd.
Do any of you belong to aarp and have you tried there recommended insurance
Company?

Once the wheels, engine, etc catch the rest of the bus goes quickly.

Yeah, the Hartford through AARP is pretty good. I left because the policy kept getting more expensive each time I renewed. It starts very reasonable pretty much undercutting most other insurers.
