May or may not be...'84-'87 Regencies had MCC chasses with the wretched GM 8.2L. Regencies on the Gillig Chassis usually have a Cat 3208 at 250 or 300 HP (one has a Cat 3116). Regencies on the Spartan chassis usually have the Cummins 8.3L at 240, 250, or 300 HP.

IIRC, the BMC has an Cummins 8.3L on a Bluebird chassis.

MilSpec AMG 6.5L TD 230HP; built-to-order by Peninsular Engines:  Hi-pop injectors, gear-driven camshaft, non-waste-gated, high-output turbo, 18:1 pistons.  Fuel economy increased by 15-20%, power, WOW!"StaRV II"

'94 28' Breakaway: MilSpec AMG 6.5L TD 230HP

The BMC was built for only 3 years starting in 94. It only came in one length 37ft. It was only built on a Spartan chassis with a Cummins 8.3. The BMC will be some what heavier than a Regency due to the steel verses aluminum construction.

Yeah BB is somewhat heavy... Like an armored personnel carrier. After looking at a few old BB (more primative than Corey's) I think I'd pick that if I were you.
