A combination of things. Partly inspire by a sandwich shop in Sacramento. Our 73 Safari is 23 foot. My wife is 5 foot and petite- I am 6'2" and big.

Our name -- The Squeeze Inn...

Occasionally, I refer to ours as "RoadHouse" but she's been called a few others of original origin.

I don't name material objects, nothing against those who do but I don't, err, didn't... Bought the Caravel and ~DS asked me what I was going to call it. I usually wouldn't have a answer to that question but for some reason, still unknown to me, I replied "Hanz".

Love Shack, It was a line in the B-52's song (Glitter on the highway and a funky little place where we could all get together) At least that is what I wanted to call it, But I wasen't allowed. So for now it's (The Camper)

I found my Airstream in a little town in Illinois. She was posted on ebay and I had wanted that particular year and model for quite some time. Because she is a 60's era trailer her name comes from the same.

On the way home from Illinois a friend and I racked our brains on 60's names and wrote every one down. By the time we got her home to Colorado we had settled on the name of Aunt Bee (the spelling of Bee is correct...look up Frances Bauvier on google). I even have a picture of Aunt Bee, Sheriff Taylor and Opey hanging in the Airstream.

I live in Maryland, not too far from the Chesapeake Bay. The Chesapeake has a long history of ship building. Many of the ship builders will not put their boats in the water until they have been named. It is serious bad luck and they say a boat without a name is sure to sink. The other superstition held by the old time work boat builders is that it can only have a woman's name. Bobby Joe is seen on boats, but it is the owners wife or daughters name, not a son. Wally named the models of trailers after famous ships. I think in honor of Wally, all trailers should be named. They are Land Yachts are they not?

Well... I can't argue, . It was just so out of character for me, so spontaneous, that I still don't know why I replied, evidently I have a case of that aluminumitius(sp?) disease. But I guess I still did it wrong as Hanz is masculine. Oh well, laugh with me!

Our classic moho was "Big Al" for a short time, until I decided I wanted to do the interior in a Western bunkhouse theme. He then became "Rockin' A." Our license plate (my very first vanity plate ever!) says ROCKN A. He will even have his own special brand (yes, a branding iron)!

A Caravel was a tiny little ship that was fast and manoverable. My uncle Hans that lives in Stienhiem, Germany has none of those traits....
Will you be attending the VAC rally in June with your Caravel? Ohio is almost right next door to Virginia.

The informal name of mine is Ho-Ho.

The former owner used the trailer as a tree magnet and managed to smash both ends. As anybody over 35 remembers, ho-ho's used to be wrapped in tin foil with crumpled ends.....

Don't know if I will have Hanz roadworthy by then, want a new axle installed first, but may just show up and tent camp. Used to live in Castleton VA so it would also be a chance to visit old friends.

Our first "named" AS was Vickie. My wife was convinced I had a girlfriend - I spent so much caring and loving our AS. Then, our daughter came up with Vickie as a name - it stuck.

Wanda Fa - Well, Wanda's name says it all - or at least our goals...
