Yes, very true! Thanks for your input, though! By the way, the owner wrote us, and that TC2000 only has 6'1" ceiling height. That's why we always ask for the height from every seller.

That is great to know! Thanks! It's just because we wanted the shortest bus possible for our living needs. And 36 feet fits our ideal floor plan perfectly, so we didn't want to go any bigger. Plus, a...

I meant headroom. Yes, we read the entire ad. And my husband found it on Craigslist and is calling him. We had never seen a TC2000 that was tall enough before, and he did not list the ceiling height....

Good to know about the 40 foot TC2000's having more headroom! Since we normally don't even ask about 40 foot buses, it makes sense that we hadn't learned that yet. I accidentally put the parenthesis...

This bus has a lot of we're looking for as far as engine placement, engine type, and transmission type (although we prefer a 36 foot bus)! But, we always steer clear of TC2000's because we know them...

Thank you for sharing! Yes, someone else had already shared it with us. TC2000's are too short headroom-wise for us, unfortunately, and we're not interested in doing a roof raise. Otherwise, this...

Very true! We converted and live full time in a camper van, so we live with the proof of that all the time! Haha. We insulated the sides decently, but not the ceiling, so we learned our lesson! It's...

That is great! What kind of bus do you have? My husband is 6'2'', and we would like to find the highest ceiling we can so we can insulate and not have to do a roof raise. Thank you!
