We call ours "The Baked Potato".
Didn't have a name for a couple years, then went camping last summer without air in 90degree hot humid weather. We were miserable and felt like potatoes in aluminum foil.

Our '97 25' Safari is called dirigible, if the reason isn't obvious I guess it really doesn't matter.

We got her in El Paso, and "La Casita" just sort of happened -- no real thought involved. Now "Ernie" Ford ...

Our beloved Sovereign 21 is Steylla. She was originally dubbed Stella by me but we couldn't get any version of that for our personalized plates so it got changed to Steylla. She wasn't named for Wally's wife either. I actually knew little about AS lore when we bought her and only learned that was Mrs B's name after we named our AS!!

Big Bertha

My wife named our new 30-foot International - Bertha. After the classic Grateful Dead song (early 1970s). I guess once a hippie, there is no going back.

Lol! Is it bad my first thought when I heard Stella and the long drive was the beer ( Stella Artois)... Probably woulda tasted wonderful upon arrival

Ours is affectionately known as 'Loretta' as a painting with a name of Loretta on it was inside! (for the record, we have a lot more fun with Loretta than she appears to be having in the painting *grin*)

After a few years of just calling her "the trailer" and waiting for a name to come to me, today it did. Unfortunately, it wasn't via a sweet old letter or the previous owners name.

She's been dubbed Maizie for now, because working on this rig is like running a maze! And it will be a-mazing if I ever finish!!!

It was either that or "Mouse House" for some past rodent residents.
