You make your own high-floor bus, and basically get a bus with a basement!
Or, at least, I think that's what I might do. Keep the front section low for the drivers seat and "lounge" area, then raise the rear, so the water tanks would be inside the passenger compartment, but under the floor. The head room on some of the low floor models is pretty good.
I also think that's a neat idea because here in New England, that would keep all the tanks and things inside the bus - so the salt and road crud couldn't get to them as easily as it could if they were hung under a skoolie.
The only downside is that most of them are really geared for city driving, and are slooooow on the highway.
