Company debuts fifth wheel for the funeral industry

ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. — In Elkhart County, they make a lot of fifth wheels for recreational purposes. The Coasson isn’t one of them, reported WNDU.

“One of the (burial) traditions in our country for a fallen politician, figure a president, is to use a caisson,” said Ron Stoll with Coasson Inc. “Which is a horse-drawn, time-of-war wagon.”

Stoll has developed a new twist on the age-old theme. It’s called the Coasson. The Coasson is an aluminum-framed, fiberglass fifth wheel made in Elkhart County for use in the funeral industry.

“Maybe you have always enjoyed a four-wheel-drive pickup truck and that’s what you’re known for,” Stoll explained. “It can go behind the pickup truck.”
