When does one search come to an end when looking for "the one"?
I feel like I'm reliving buying a home all over again! So basically I've come across a bus, not a school bus, but a passenger bus. And not a transit (city bus), but one of a Freightliner chassis with a Goshen body.
While trying to explore our options outside of school buses, we came across this one located in the states which will require myself to fly out and drive back home up in New Hampshire.
My significant other and I love the style of the bus in question. It's higher than the transit city buses, but not as high as a regular school bus when it comes to ground clearance.
Engine? Well while it may not be a DT466 with a Allison MD3060 transmission, it's rocking a Cummins 5.9l and a Allison 2400 series transmission with the miles under 150,000.
While air brakes could of been equipped, this one did not have it. While it was on my list of things to have, I had to compromise.
Wheel chair equipped and belly storage were a nice plus.
GVWR is 26,500lbs. 17,500 Rear - 9,000 Front.
Length - 31-34FT.
Waiting to hear back from the dealer regarding some questions, but if everything checks out and looks great in person we might just bite the bullet.
The pictures I'm posting are not of the exact bus, but match closely to what we're looking at for the purpose of others on the forum recommending it.
Would anyone see challenges with this style bus? Without knowing dimensions of the belly storage, I'm thinking the install of a generator would be a problem. Fresh and grey water would be inside the bus like most conversions.
