I think the roof hump on a scenicruiser is as good as it ever gets when it comes to balanced proportion (that's why I bought a few  Grin ).

I have a very low opinion of the cosmetics & proportion of the peace maker bus, too busy & the body lines don't seem to flow together. But, that's just my opinion to the looks of it.


I like the extra front windshield on the upper level on my bus, it really opens up the view when parked. The dual levels also break up the tunnel or cave effect.

As for overall height, if over 13'-6", you're gonna have clearance issues. Most bridges clear 14', but there are exceptions that will cause the headaches . . . .
A landoll trailer has a 38" deck height, so you'll need to consider that when it comes to 'alternative transportation' of your bus - if it is ever needed. Towing on a hook carries it's own set of opportunities too. Just fodder for thought.


BUT, you shouldn't be building a bus for us. You should be building a bus for you to enjoy  Grin. If you like it, most here will be happy for you & support you every way we can.   Cool Grin Grin Grin

Thanks Crown, I remember that one from a couple of years ago, trying to figure out how to kill the folks that bastardized those buses without going to jail.  (Of course after the jury saw a Scenicruiser and then what they did to it...I don't think I would be convicted!) Grin

It looks to me to be a Postal Crown with a Hall-Scott gas engine which can be changed out with a cummings. Naturally you will need a side mount cummings which can be had. Nice conversion project Crown has all truck parts as the proud owners of Crowns know...
