Hi, as I plan my interior, I'm aware that the floor drops 3" from the rear to the front on my MC9.  This means that the counter will either be level and not parallel, or parallel and not level.  Or when installing the floor is it spaced up in the front to create a level floor?  What is the most common practice?

I second Tom.  Line it up with the windows and no one will ever notice but you.

Third. I'm using the window bars as "level" on mine. Having the two not agree would eventually drive me nuts.

Level is a nebulous concept on a bus, as on a boat.  I would decide on a reference plane and build true to that plane, be it the floor, the windows, or the ceiling.
