There is a YouTube channel https://youtu.be/cB1Ur8QaIaI here

They did window units inside and kept it stealth, however they did have some issues later on.

I like the idea of using a lower bay and making it basement air from a window unit. Shouldn’t be too hard.

I think it'd be easier if I had compartments down below. This seems to have been a budget backup bus hence 97k miles on it during 20 years with Louisiana schools.
No air brakes
No air con
Non adjustable wheel
No ether injector
No door alarm
Basic driving seat

I'm toying with the idea of renting a portable ac for a day or two just to try it.

  The humidity is worse than the actual heat. Do you think perhaps a dehumidifier might work better?

      Not sure.  A dehumidifier would *help* but probably wouldn't do all the job -- and they put heat into the air, along with the dry air.

Gotta love a school bus. Take out the angel grinder and cut a hole in it. No worries!

You're right of course. That is something I'd thought about. I had a dehumidifier when I lived in a damp mobile home. It made the place a lot more comfortable.

Oddly, it feels hotter in sc than it does in a darned rainforest!
