Who doesn’t think an iconic recreational vehicle would make the perfect hearse? Apparently some folks down at Airstream figured as much, and from what I understand about 32 units were manufactured in 1981 and ’82.
Well, it’s our new project over here at the shop. It’s days as hearse are over. We’ll be breathing new life into this 14,500 GVWR chassis. But as it is, she’s in surprisingly good condition for a 34 year old motorhome.
Anybody in the market for some (reclining) captain chairs, shoot me an email.
Very streamlined model with no rooftop A/C (the condenser is streetside up under the outriggers), skylights or vents (no appliances or plumbing).
Two large doors on either side, provide a pass-through for the casket.
The possibilities for re-purposing are endless. This rear hatch design would make an ultimate ‘tailgater’ option.
