Bus Dimensions

I am in the process of designing my bus. I am looking for ruff dimensions of a 40ft rear engine with a handicap door. I would like to get the width. Floor Length from engine wall to wheel well, wheel well to wheel well, wheel well to the driver seat. And the location of the HC door.

If you give me your bus dimensions I would be glad to start an image file on SketchUp, Free 3d sketch. So people can start designing the project.

I just measured my bus the other day. Using a rope clamped to the windshield and tied to the emergency door I used tape to mark out the locations of each wheel well. I only had a 12' tape measure. Go by the numbers in the center and right near the exit. I didn't measure the rear door unfortunately... next time.

Found out the hard way that the 33' bus the guy sold me is really 37.25. It might be shorter on the outside, I dunno.
