I see those hearse motorhomes all the time on eBay.

I wonder if this beast could also fare as well as their plane did that had the stuck nose gear.

Airstream produced these at the suggestion of a former employee who also was connected to that industry. They also sold other custom coaches that were outfitted for special use..see of course the Nasa Astro Van still in use today.
There have been buses, and limousines, the funeral coach, and others.See last winters 'Airstream Life' for the history of the Classic motorhome.

I have seen a few posts about these units. I thought I read that they did not have kitchens, or maybe it was bathrooms. Can anyone explain what the differences are? I know that they have a very large storage area in the rear, and we all know what that was for.

I saw this driving by in Boston a few months ago... it's in incredible condition. My mom works for JetBlue and couldn't believe they had such a thing!

It might have been designed to offset any profits so they could cry poor and get government bailouts.

Why a casket...? Just bury me in my Airstream. I'll leave the passengers to their own decision(s)...

Just getting to this post. Actually surprised that no one mentioned the different license plate locations on the JetBlue Airstream motorhome. I think it's a neat detail.
Thanks, Derek
