Okay, so I peek at the all mighty and elevated Eagle board occasionally and know this is the perfect question to ask there, but alas I don't own a bus...let alone an Eagle which would get me into their private nesting area!

So I am looking for some differences between 10s and 20s. Any reason to buy one over the other?

Thanks, I am getting closer to that exclusive club!

Give us break Dave only 2 sections on our board that is not open to the public and that is club chatter for club members only (not much in there) and the Eagles Nest and that is for the officers and even members don't know it is there it can not be seen by anybody but officers.
If you don't get help with your question by someone here I'll help you with the question on both models of the 20 and the 10.
 We do welcome all on the board heck we even have John 316 there that should tell you something LOL sorry John

good luck

Dave,

The original differences between a Model 10 and a Model 20 were that the Model 20 had the same side windows and windshields as a Model 15 but still was only 96 inches wide. They also incorporated the hydraulic fan systems into the Model 20. Otherwise, they were basically the same as a Model 10.

The New Jersey Transit Model 20's had several differences, such as corten steel frame, Thermo King HVAC, air starters, stainless steel siding, pantograph bay doors, raised driver area, all white colored wiring, and different front and rear crowns.

Now come visit us on the Eagle's Board.

Dave, I love the model 20 the only problem with the NJT 20 is the engine compartment without a major remodel you are stuck with the 6v92 it is very small compartment and that is not a problem on a model 10 also the NJT has hub pilot wheels a good feature  



good luck

No joke. If they let me in over there, they would let just about everybody in (I imagine...well except for rubber noses). It is nice to be at least a little up to date with the "in" group. lol

God bless,

John

Okay, thanks Clifford and Jim. It does say on the front page of the Eagle board that you must have an Eagle to join though. Also, I didn't see a "search" feature which I assumed was because I wasn' a member.

It says you must own an Eagle to join the club, not so for the forum. Come on over, we would love to have you.

Dave, thanks for asking about the differences.  someone asked me before what the difference was between a 15 and a 20 and i didn't know.  Now i know.

and you're even luckier.  they never told me that you could be on the board without an eagle, so i went out and bought one just so i could be on the board ;-).

actually, we had ours before they had a board, and Eagle owners are a friendly and helpful group as evidenced by the ones i met at the Bussin' rally in Arcadia.

Register on both boards, ask questions, then buy an Eagle and join the Eagles chapter.  There are a lot of good ones for sale.

Okay, side windows and windshields...that is pretty simple. What are the differences? Side windows-shape/size? Windshields-height?

Yep... apparently a little bit of a re-write is in order for the front page of the Eagle website. We've had a few questions about that recently. I'll get to work on it.

And I have to say that I loved my Model 20. It was an NJT but I actually still kinda liked the things that were special to the NJT. The worst thing about them that people hate is the caps and you change those anyway when you raise it.

Clifford, we must have been doing something wrong. We measured the 6V92 with 748 and retarder that was in the bus against an 8V92 with a B500 and we came out with almost the exact same size. Dan and I talked about it on the phone one day and he said it wouldn't fit either but we measure the 8V92 with B500 when it was sitting out on the floor and then measured my engine and it was within just a few inches of being the same thing.
