That is Clayton Roger's, hosts of the WDC Unit Cherry Blossum's Rally. He's a great guy! Happy bidding, as I've sat in Laid Out and it's a nice coach.

I think the word "sat",is the operative (or at least the important) word in your post.
Actually, I agree that the AS hearses can be a really neat outfit!

We camped next to that rv for three nights--and we heard all kinds of spooky sounds in that hearse (and not just Rob was lain out in that thing)!

Seriously, the coach has huge potential for use as an entertainment vehicle (the kind corporations rent for tailgate parties). There's a bar in the back (aka, the flower chamber), there's a kitchenette and a lav, there's space for a flat screen tv--and the compartment underneath are ready for installation of a large refrigeration unit and pull-out barbeque.

One might say, only die hard (heh, heh) airstreammers will know what it was originally meant for.

The Hearse is Dead! Long live the Hearse!

"By the late 80ís, the Funeral Coach had itself shuffled off this mortal coil, but hundreds remained in the service of funeral directors across the country."


There is at least one '91 350....

The storage potential..... one could almost lose the toad for a scooter or two.

That thing is very cool. I can see what you mean about the rear bay storage. European RV manufacturers typically put large pass through storage in the rear like that by raising the rear bed platform - after all how much empty space to you need above you while you are sleeping.

Spacccccccce, the foremost need....

The DP 360 has a raised bed to give head room to the Cummins...there is a cute little storage up forward in the engine bay...

That 350 funeral coach was basically a 28ftr with 7ft of "trunk".... with no shower.... no stove...

jerry220ver put his on Ebay tonight...

I don't get it....why would you want to go rv'ing with a stiff?


Frederic







Now let's see how many people realize I'm being facetious....seriously, I couldn't bring myself to ride in a rig that carried around dead bodies, but that's just me.

Frederic, it's not about what it was ... it's about what it can be! The "funeral" is over, the back end of the coach is now a hanging closet and access for all my demo day equipment. As I don't need or want a whole lot of kitchen / shower space taking up "parking room" the funeral coach suited my needs to a T.

My former rolling showroom was a bare shell of a bookmobile. The funeral coach added a touch of class to my traveling road show. My clients are all very complementary of the new rig.

The idea of consolodating hearse, flower car, and limo into one unit makes a lot of sense for an urban funeral home and a small family. The original layout of the 28'er was for 12 family, one driver, flowers and of course the guest of honor.. who only got a one way ride.

Being able to breath new life into this old classic is bordering on a labor of love. As promised I will be working this weekend to bring new photos to the formum. It's a work in progress but it's getting rave reviews where ever I go. This week in the western NC mountains.... tonight from the Wal-mart lot in Hendersonville NC.

Well, Glen, I suppose whatever floats your boat....I still think it's creepy, no offense.
