Did you name yours?

As I've been reading various posts I've noticed that lots of folks have named their RV and/or their tow vehicle. Wow - there are a lot of very creative people in this forum!

It has tweaked my curiosity - what do you own/drive and what did you name it?

Our boys are still working on a name for the TT but "Lucy" (?) seems to be a contender! I think we need to start calling the DH's Sequoia "Roo Hauler"

- Karen

Well our last TT was a Terry and my girls picke dthe name "Terrance" for it. so when we picked up the new Forest River they thought that "GUMP" would be a good name. So "GUMP" it is and labes so on the side.

Yes, but I only use its "given name" when I hit my fingers with a hammer or skin my knuckles with a wrench while working on it.

After debating whether or not to name the trailer I opted for a compromise and ordered personalize plate instead. I figure that could hold the name "Plucky" in case I opt to name the trailer after all.

(Plucky means Brave, Courageous & Gutsy. It describes going through my RV journey on my own)

PS
There are times I want to name it so maybe one day...

We call ours RAYNMKR. Someone else beat us to the "I". We never named any of our other RVs so we just figured "Why Not" It fits!.

I've been asked if I'm a weatherman and in a way I am!!!

...since we found out that for tax purposes, you can treat your camper trailer as a second home.... we call our Graywolf 19RR the "Petite Chateau".

The truck we pull it with is big and white...the tag has "BWM' on it so we call her the Big White Muther!

My wife named the new Wildwood "Woody". Just this week I taught my 2 year-old daughter to say Woody....very cute (but I could be a little bias).

we get our trailer tuesday and this time next week will be camping in it - they I think we'll name it. The last one never got a name...perhaps it had no personality?

The TV is currently called 'the beast' but 'jolly green giant' is in the running as a replacement.

It's fun reading the different names and the reasons behind them. Hope more people join in on this topic.

Now has anyone come up with a mascot of sort to use as a marker for visitors to locate you easier?

Off to a "ROCKY" start!

DW, came up with the 8285WS Rockwood as "ROCKY" for our first pull was sort of on a rocky, bumpy road down I-75 just north of Cincinnati and Dayton.

Now, it is always called "ROCKY"
