A little known fact.

Or you could call it, Starship, after the Starship Enterprise, another 60's creation.

Or you could just wait, and let it name itself as they are wont to do.

Why not combine these suggestions and call it Jefferson Starship?

[quote=Mel]Groan!

Our Safari was nameless for over a year.

Hi Mel,

You know, I never thought about nicknames for the Safari at all until I got involved w/reading posts on the Forums!..come to think of it, I've never called any of our cars, trucks, boats, etc. them by any nicknames..it's going to take me a long time probably to decide on a name that's just right for the Safari, for sure!..

Your '64 Safari is the big brother (sister?) to our '64 GlobeTrotter. It's two feet longer, and probably a very similar layout & details. '64 was one ot the first years they started standardizing the models.

You might find the 1964 Catalog interesting, pages 7-9 show the floor plans

I'm sure we all have great names for your AirS, but it has to be one you come up with. Best ones come from a dream. Now go right out to your Air and go to bed and dream one up!

My Safari is a 1966 model and I wanted to stick with that decade. We named her Aunt Bee. My neighbor found an antique "Aunt Bee's Kitchen" metal sign and we hung that inside of her.

Everyone here loves her name. We painted it on the side of her.

Hi Shari,

Yup, the Safari Twin config on the pages suits me to a T!...the exact floor plan is on page 9..I have the Airstream Book that has that same colored picture that's on your linked catalogue. Thnx for that info..I'll print it out for posterity!

It feels wonderfully right when you find the right one
Hi COArgosy78, how romantic for a name!..and I agree, how 'bout a Airstream name book, at least a pdf of suggested names, great idea!

Hi DJ,

Funny you mentioned bed and dream, I woke up this morning, and the first words I uttered when I thought about the Safari: airbus

Hi Clancy_boy,

How 'bout Little Ricky or Fred or Ethel to match all the other Lucy's or Lucilles out there already?

Of course you could go "All Hollywood" and name it "Maxwell Smart", "Chief", or even "Agent 86".... or If female, the beautiful "Agent 99". Oh yeah, If your a train travel buff you could go with "Silver Streak" or maybe.... "The California Limited". Whatever name you chose make sure to have it displayed on your signature line and maybe even painted on your coach. Hey! There's another one "The Coach"....Or the "Coach Potato"! If you are happy all of the time when you"re in it maybe "Good Humour"!!!! Good luck and pick one that makes you smile when you see it or think of your trailer. And as Roy and Dale Always

Said.... "Happy Trails to You.... 'til We meet again." Ed
Hi BIGED52,

Are you anywhere's near Chicago, my birthplace???..
hmm, more ideas to add to the list..that's cute: coach potato!..I did think of Silver Streak..
