ground clearance

Anyone know where i can find the ground clerance for different busses?
Not just from the lowest point, but also from ground to bottom of bus.
I am wondering how much room i would have for storage compartments and black/ gray tanks.

That's going to be a tough one and also depend on you and definitions. Best bet is to check with the manufacture spec sheets. I can tell you what a 40' Blue Bird is for 1999. I dunno how much if at all it varies by year.

1) With what tires on it? They vary.
2) What length? A 40ft bus will get hung on railroad tracks before a 20ft bus will.
3) Air ride or spring? I dunno if that changes thing or not.

Short/easy answer is you want the distance from the frame rails to the bottom of the side skirts. I'd have to go back and check but I think mine is 24". My bus has storage lockers already but will likely add more.
