Lengths?

Is there a resource that a newbie like myself that is trying to buy something relatively soon that list the lengths (bump to bumper) widths and other specs of a bus?

Probably not, but if you have constraints you should post them and people can chime in.

What I have found is that a general subjective estimate (read guestimate) is 2.5' per window including pillars from the inside back door to the threshold and from there it's 9' for a CE to the front bumper.

They are generally 7.5' side to side on the inside.

If you search on Google, you can get some pictures of more detailed measurements but they only apply to the drawing. Your bus will be different.

You're welcome to search the drawings on Thomas' website. That will give you about as close a measurement as you're likely to find. Bluebird, etc... will be slightly different, but not enough to make much of a difference. And before you ask, no I don't know of a way to find a certain size bus, you'll just have to do the legwork and root through folders and pdfs. Good luck

Or you can estimate. Each window from pillar to pillar c/l is about 28.75". Some windows maybe a bit bigger (~38.75"), some a bit smaller, use your best guess. On a CE the cab is about 43", and the hood and bumper about 58". Behind the last window is about 24" to the rear bumper.

My 12 window was a 72 passenger All American 12 window (not counting the driver) and it's 35ft bumper to bumper.
