Help finding a bus

Hello, my family is looking for a bus to convert. My partner is 6'2" so we need the 6'6" interior height which I understand is only a few makes and models. Anyone know exactly which to search for? I'm not finding anything with my searches. If anyone knows which buses meet our height criteria and how to find one please let me know.

Are transits made for blacktops though? We're needing it to handle country roads.

Skoolies typically have much more ground clearance than transit style buses.

WildRose, transits aren't necessarily for blacktop roads. You might be thinking of city buses. Skoolie transit buses (no hood in front) have the ground clearance for country roads. Some even have 4WD.

Tango, please read Skoolie 101 thread.
