No wheel wells ahahah
 
I realized my bus isn’t the average typical school bus. I have no wheel well is that normal ? And my bus is around 6’4 or 6’5 because my friend is 6’2 and he still has some head Space

That's normal. And awesome! Not as common though. Sounds like you have a great bus!

Our biggest challenge in a short bus is working our floorplan around the wheel wells. Count your blessings :thumb:

It varies. My first bus didn't have wheel wells, my second bus does. There were multiple height options around, 77" is common.

It's normal for some buses to be spec'ed as "flat floor" models, no wheel wells. Usually this is for wheelchair access models but I could foresee a district ordering all of them that way so they all use the same parts (chassis, brakes, suspension, etc.)

Lack of wheel wells usually means lowrider suspension.

Is that a good thing, bad thing, or neither, ECCB?

Rough ride and less ground clearance.
