I am asking for a friend he just bought a J4500 conversion (empty) shell it is 3 years old but new! with 2 slides he will be along when he is approved for the board by trade he is a yacht builder in CA it should be some bus when done.

Scott was asking about headroom that baby has plenty almost 7 foot

You guys help him he is a very nice guy and a good person goes by the name of "singlebarrel" not a gun he got the name because of the Jack Daniels he likes so well.

In case you are wondering I had his permission to tell that lol so go easy on him for a few weeks

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.

I'm curious why someone would sell a 2007 Prevost to change to a late model MCI?

I think the new Setras look really nice on the exterior.  I have never been inside one to judge the interior.  I've only seen one Setra on the road here in Minneapolis.  They aren't nearly as popular with the coach operators as the Prevost, MCI, or even Van Hool.  Van Hool tends to be somewhat popular locally since ABC Companies has a large facility locally.

Guys, in new busses, isn't the best of the MCIs as good as the best of the Prevosts, or is it apples and oranges? Lvmci...
