Re: Darren's 1996 E350 World Trans Shorty

I am also planning to convert a shuttle bus. I'd like a medium length skoolie better but I live in a "pinky's out" neighborhood and they'd have an absolute heart attack if I parked a big, yellow school bus in the driveway. LOL

Would you have interior measurements handy? I'd be interested in knowing:

1) floor length behind driver's seat
2) floor width
3) headroom
4) distance from floor to window bottoms

Any light you could shed would be greatly appreciated.

It's short for Humungus, who is Mad Max's nemesis in The Road Warrior. It also rhymes with bus, haha.
I just may have to modify Big Mac's name to BIG MAX!!!!!

pulling a trailer could slip stream you a bit to. might not be too hard on fuel or even make it better. jeep guys do this all the time with the batam trailers behind them on the highway.
