Our Bus

Hello its been a long time coming but we finaly bought our bus.Its 2002 international with a T444 motor and allison auto trans. The seats were removed and the floor was already pulled up, lucky, lucky us. Were going to do a 12" roof raise but were keeping the bus windows. My wife owns a embroidery buisness and we like to travel to alot of events. so all the natural light will help. and i dont know why the photos are upside down. im not a computor Guy either.

if the bus is upside down then you are doing a floor raise

Welcome !

Looks like a good starting point. Read-up on ospho, flap wheels, elbow grease, rusty primer...

Why only 12" raise? Consider 18" maybe.

LOL I'd go more like 8".
Ten inches of raise feels like a LOT on my bus.

I went I believe it was 10.5" which put my outside height at 11.5', with low profile AC units puts my height at just under 12.5' which is 1 foot under what Tractor trailers run, Hopefully there will be very few areas that will give me trouble
