Be careful, Crowns do not have slab sides, they bend in at the lower windows and should be extended/raised at that level, saves on problems. Gillig Buses are slab sided and the three axle long buses have the same engine/layout as Crown Buses, (Engine under the floor!). Also, because the engine is underfloor, you have to build to allow for access to the motor. As a result, it is important to completely remove the floor in order to inspect the under floor super structure to repair anything that looks questionable!
The other thing that often gets overlooked is the thickness of floor insulation & flooring material as well as ceiling insulation & ceiling material. Those combined could be several inches thick (especially if doing radiant floor heating).
