Can someone point me to the right place to find the exterior and interior dimensions of a 2004/2005 BlueBird AA FE bus.

Blue Bird sells buses in 72, 74 and 77 inch roof heights. Wheelbase lengths can vary wildly. Width is usually the same (I can run out and measure mine).



We will need a lot more info to get you a good answer.

Yup, Vantage portal is great. Also you can get the engine serial #s on there and then check with Cat/Cummins/IC to see further details about your drivetrain.

It wouldn't let me thank-you again, so Thanks.


I just put in a bid for 2004 BlueBird AA FE from school auction, they even had the vehicles entire maint/repair history attached and nothing out of ordinary caught my eye.

Ok update: I am bidding on a 2004 Bluebird A3 FE 8400 (84 pax configured). Because I'm an OTR trucker and am reaching my hometime limit, I'm working on a quote to have someone ship the vehicle to me. I have all the necessary dimensions after lotsa research today, the only thing I am having difficult in finding is the vehicle Net Weight.


Does anyone have this Bus and what is the net weight (not GVWR)?

My AARE was around 23,000 lbs on the scales with a full tank and the interior intact.



Keep in mind that I had transair factory AC and full understorage which increases the weight substantially over a route spec AAFE.
