Need a small favor

Does anybody know the dimensions of the back door on a conventional skoolie? When we move we plan to use a bus as a moving truck. I want to be sure all our crap will fit through that door.

I've used my bus to move people many times, so far every couch has fit through the door but reclining chairs you have to really struggle to get in.

The chair is what I am worried about. I have my "big blue" chair that has the perfect ass grove in it. My wife wants to replace it but that just aint happening.

Hmmm..I don't remember the exact sizes...however loading my stuff up into the bus for storage the side door was widest, but the rear door was taller (the front door didn't get used much.

A lot of buses don't have a side door.

yeap..some days I wish I didn't, makes floor planning a tad bit more fun. But if I ever have to install a wheel chair lift (mother and wife have MS) it will make life easier.
