Weight should be depending on bus possibly up to around 19-20,000-10K, I also think your correct on 40 ft max length, maybe that varies from state to state? probably doesn't

Bluebird shows the longest Vision available is 499" (41'7") OAL, 280" WB, with a GVWR of 31K. The longest D3RE is 490" OAL, 273" WB and 36,200 GVWR. Any reason you don't want to go with mobile lifts? That's what we're looking for.
