Think about it, they don't have a lot of miles on them, plenty of room in the back to carry your other camping gear and keeps your neighbors at a distance. I used to have a neighbor that sold used hearses. The big fancy funeral homes would get a new hearse and the small funeral home would get the old one with very little wear and mileage.

Back in the early 60's while growing up in So. Ca., 3 of us went in and bought a used 1956 Cadillac Superior hearse because it was perfect for hauling our surf boards.

Just goes to prove that people tow with what they own, not what is always best suited for the job.

Well, here to the hereafter is a long long way. Perhaps the deceased feels he might need to stop for the night along the way and thus is bringing his portable resting place with him.

I'll bet that 472 cubic inch caddy puts out a lot of torque to pull the camper like it isn't there!
