Do you have a name for your RV?
« on: January 21, 2011, 07:51:56 AM »
My wife and I have been having a discussion for what would be an appropriate name for our RV.  I thought it would be fun to throw the question out to the group and see if others have names for their projects and what thought went into picking the name.

We named our truck Guss after Guss in the movie Lonesome Dove because he was so tough and our fiver is named after his love, Clara.  Guss and Clara do real good together......

Our first 4 RVs were boats which always have to be named.  So when we bought our first RV with wheels we named it.  BAGO as in Winne-BAGO.  We carried this tradition on to our first toad, "Shorty" the smart car.

Our boat was called "Montana Sky" and roamed the Chesapeake.  People saw the name on the stern and asked us how we got it to the Chesapeake.  Without blinking we told them we brought it down the Missouri, then to the Mississippi, into the gulf, around the keys and up the inland waterway.

When we decided to move to a land yacht, we named it "Big Sky".  We also decided not to paint the name on the stern.  Although the same question would have generated a much simpler and more truthful answer.

Hi,
We don't usually refer to the MH by name (although the GPS is Nag), but if we did, it would be "Sleeps Two" and the Jeep with kayaks, etc would be "Toys for Two"

We didn't paint the name on the stern of the coach, just used a tag. :)

We named our class 'C' "Pumpkin".  The DW says it's her Cinderella coach.  My 1st choice was "haRVey", but I don't always get to make choices. :'(   Our toad is "Coors".  It's a silver Jeep Wrangler (silver bullet).

My first RV (still have it) is a Coleman Pop Up, named "Hotel Collapso".

The second (a "C") was " Casa del Cuello Roho" or House of the Red Neck.

The current Bounder, named for or first major trip to Alaska is the "OnaQwest".
North Carolina DMV wouldn't give me the obvious correct spelling.

Then there are some of us that don't.  Named our boats, my favorite naming was for our first boat, Sea Shuttle.  It had a name when we bought it, but we changed.  Original name was a Polish word for Back and Forth.  It ws a sailboat.  Appropriate, and Shuttle, being a back and forth stayed in the spirit.  It was a Columbia, the name of the first Space Shuttle, and we bought it at the time of the first launch.  It just fell in together. 

However, the RV's never got named.  Not sure why not, just didn't.

Another question of possible interest - do you refer to your RV as "he", "she" or "it"?

"Rose" as in Desert Rose, which is the interior name. The RV earned the name on our first night in a campground after we bought it. We were walking to the office, looked back, and there was a campground street sign next to the coach that said "Desert Rose."

Our first boat was "It's Alright Now" meaning we were on the water so all was good.  When we bought the truck camper, we named her "It's Alright Too" because as long as we aren't working it's alright!  Our 2nd (and current boat) is DebbaritaVille, named after my version of a Margarita and fondly named by friends "Debbaritas".  The boat never leaves the dock without them, so it was very fitting.  No names for the pick up truck, the Jeep or the Freightliner.

My sailboat was named "IV Play" by her original owner.  He tried to document her as "Foreplay" but the USCG Documentation Office made him change the spelling.  A sailor's superstition would not permit my changing the name so my ex named our dinghy "Afterglow."  My RV however is simply called "Home."
