You Texas folks won't go to AZ to get a cheap bus? This has air conditioning.

Sometimes in Oregon we use air conditioning for about 4 to 7 days of the year.

That's 19 wheel chairs, not 19 butts.

That AC only works when the BIG engine is running. Since mine isn't, neither is the AC.

Now here I said I had never seen a mid-size bus with a lift that had luggage compartments and within 24-hours a picture of one is posted.

When it comes to school buses the option list is pretty long and if you are willing to pay for it the OEM's will put it on the bus.

This particular bus is not a TC1000 or a TC2000 but it is an All American. Which means it will have axles, cooling systems, and a power package that is much heavier duty than what is found in the TC1000 or TC2000.

Because it has the Cat 3126 it will more like 250 HP than 200 HP.

Because it is a 2004 it will have the Allison 2000 or 3000 automatic OD transmission.

Since it has the Cat and the OD and a luggage compartment it should be able to cruise the highway at 70+ MPH.

And if you notice, it has a flat floor except for up front.

The A/C units are not coach air units like those usually found on buses. They are most likely RV type units that run on 110-VAC. That means the bus will have a pretty hefty invertor already so that when the bus is running it can change the 12-VDC into 110-VAC. Which means it will have a HUGE alternator--probably closer to 300 AMPS or even a second alternator to provide juice just for the A/C units.

While I am not a big fan of Cat engines, if I was looking for a bus of this size I would not hesitate on bidding on it!
