What does SOB mean?

I've seen the term "SOB" in a number of posts. Of course I know what the "standard" definition is. However, SOB, as it is used on the AS forum seems describe those "other" trailers. You know, the ones with the visual appeal of a storage shed and the interior decor of a Super8 motel. What does it stand for. There needs to be an acronym FAQ for us newbies.

Maybe this post should be a sticky:

(except that TV now means tow vehicle instead of television)

It can also refer to the owner of one of those esthetically-challenged trailers...

Same old box

when we first started shoping for an AS - and started spending a lot of time on this forum - we assumed it meant Same Old Box... which we still prefer.

It was either a pink umbrella drink or something we can't discuss here on the forums! But I think it's SOTB ~
