Question Preferred bus under 30’?

Hey y’all,

My nephew and I are looking for a shortish bus to convert and we’d like to stay under 30’ long bumper to bumper, with the inside being at least 16’ from the back of the driver’s seat to the back of the bus. The plan is to take it around the Midwest and Canada , so we need something that is not too hard to maneuver, can get on the highway, and handle mountain roads.

Anyone know of a particular make and model that fits those criteria? Also, my nephew is 6’3 and still growing so bonus points if the style you recommend has extra head room.

Thanks in advance, y’all!

I'd be looking for a high headroom TC1000. Transit style buses give you the most possible interior space for a given length. It will have a Cummins 5.9 and almost surely an AT545 but even the bus racers here don't get too upset about that combo in a shortie.
