What School Bus has the most Headroom?


If you are in the process of choosing a school bus to convert into a home, one of the things you need to consider when buying a school bus is that you want to be able to stand up and walk around inside it. Here at Gardian Angel, LLC we took the headache out of this problem for you. We compared all the current 2021 school buses available on the market. Then, we sorted them by their interior height. It's important to note that headroom measurements are taken from the center of the ceiling to the manufactured floor. Ceilings in school buses have curves where the ceiling meets the side walls and that amount fluctuates so please consider this information. We hope this gets you well on your way to begin converting that school bus into the home of your dreams.


The current 2021 school bus models vary in headroom size from 66 inches (5.5 ft) to 78 inches (6.5 feet). Go big or go home, right? So let's start with the school buses with the largest interior height, so you can make it your new home.
