Shortie Comparison Visual(No Cutaways)-See the different wheelbases and overhang...

The top 3 are photoshopped shorter just to see...most are IC but you can tell the Thomas Vista by the stubby nose. The one above that is a Freightliner. I draw the line at 24'-26'(6-7 window) to be a shortie, 8 window would be about 28'-29'...

The
IC BE200 5 window wins for the least overhang...but you're likely stuck with the VT365. Older models might have the T444.

My 5 window Vista (not handy) is exactly 24 ft bumper to bumper.

Nice! Is the doghouse a pain? Still loads better than a cutawy?

It's not that bad for normal maintenance. Haven't had to do anything to major. Replacing compressors and alternators and such is easy enough.
