I'm thinking this is the Detroit diesel and MCC chassis? That's all I can get from the VIN and google-fu. Google-fu says "stay away"?

I spoke to the dealer this morning. It is an MCC w/8.2L DD. Miles are supposed to be actual, the folks that traded it in had it at a permanent site, then drove it infrequently on trips. They are supposed to be checking on the age of the tires/batteries/last service on engine & transmission. Depending on these items, while not the most desirable combination of chassis/engine, it may not be a terrible buy at or below the asking price.

As I understand it, yes.

Some additional information from the dealer:
The original binder with all the paperwork is with the coach - but it says "Regal" not Regency. Coach has new batteries but tires are about 13 years old (9Rx22.5 on alloys). It does have a diesel genset. No word on when fluids were last changed.

Seems to be priced right, but I think it will be too sluggish for us with our race car & trailer. Still looking for an 8.3L Cummins w/6 spd Allison!

I like the price, really it seems in line for the rig. I'm also not averse to doing an engine and transmission swap, but the MCC chassis seems like a complete orphan, no parts to be had.

off topic - why does everyone assume a 5-digit odometer has never gone over 99,999? Just sayin'

Based on the "roof line profile" this is most likely a "Regal 34D SE". Could also be, but I doubt it, a "Regal 32D SE" if they measured the bumpers to give you the 34' length. The 1987 models saw only the following based on KBB and NADA

I will call the salesman I have been speaking to and see I he will shoot a picture of the data tag for those that have asked. Will post it up here if/when he sends it over.

From what I have read this is a non-turbo motor @ about 205-210 hp?

IIRC, when Barth acquired the MCC rights, the coaches were built by the Regency division which had acquired those rights.
