shortie bus?

Does anyone know of a school bus that has at least 16 feet of length behind the driver's seat/stairs? Is there any such thing or would I have to go to a full sized bus?

I got 14 feet behind the drivers seat on mine. I'd love an extra 2 feet!

Pack up your bus and bug out to the hills!

I have a 1991 Ward Volunteer shorty with 17.5 feet behind the driver seat. Hope it helps.
