It is just me, the wife, and our cat. After having the bus and travelling around for a few years now, we are so happy with the size!
Its amazing what a shorter bus will do for maneuvering and parking.
A 40' bus is sort of a chore. A 20' bus is like a really large van.
I love my 5 window Thomas bus the best driving bus I've had was the 6 window IC. Really easy and stress free to drive, even in Orlando.
The Thomas is nice, but it definitely feels much more like a farm truck. My last Thomas did too.
I'm not brand loyal anymore. That got me nowhere. Thomas is my least favorite of the big three school bus makers, yet this is my favorite bus of all 5 I've owned.
