Chart or Spreadsheet of Bus Dimensions

I have looked and looked but am unable to find a chart of bus dimensions. Is anyone aware of a spreadsheet or any single resource which lists:

Make
Model
Style
Bus Length (nose to tail)
Buildable Length (back of driver seat to back of bus)
Height (floor to ceiling)

Seems like this would be a hugely valuable resource to have for those who are in the exploratory process before getting skooliefied.

I or someone could start one but it would depend on members providing this info as I doubt there's another source for this info on the web. I also wonder how easy it will be to cross-reference as many buses have a thousand different options and may also be built to order which means they're not like "here's 3 trim levels to choose from".

Personally, my feelings are a tape measure and a camera and wandering around a few bus yards would be a much more valuable tool to find a bus for your liking. Build your own list of busses you like. That is how we did it and ended up with our bus. Our bus is a 28 foot T/C 2000 Bluebird handy bus with 4 doors because we really liked all of the doors. 22 feet buildable space behind the drivers seat, flat nose front engine bus. Also, did not want a 40 foot bus and walking around them when we were shopping convinced us of that.

There are threads.

https://www.skoolie.net/forums/f9/bu...ions-1863.html

list of 'em there, more threads if you search: "bus dimensions"

Best to use a tape measure. About 27" per window on my bus.
