So, seller from that ebay auction on post#2 called back.
These are the overall dimensions of the bus:
Inside headroom: 62"
W: 79"
L: 28'
Considering I might have to rent parking from the city anyway...mind as well go with a full length.
I'll keep looking for auctions/better prices in S.FL, too. Already in contact with a few places... Let's see what happens.
It also looks like I'll go with a roof raise, as I'm 6.0' and I might feel a bit claustrophobic if my head is constantly brushing the ceiling lol
What do you guys think?

5'2'' is not much headroom! Maybe you mean 6' 2'' instead of 62"?

The raised headroom buses should have enough room.
Just out of curiosity, have you given thought to buying a real coach bus like an MCI or even an older Eagle?

My bus has 6'2" of headroom and while it isn't palatial, my head doesn't hit the roof and I'm a little over 5'10. Even when I get away from the higher center part and over to the edges there isn't much of a problem. I just wouldn't go with the 6'2" headroom buses if I were you.
