We lovingly call our AS "The Crappy Camper"

1) We bought our 31' 76' Sovereign on ebay on a Friday night and picked her up in Kansas the next day. The turn around was so fast the owner didn't have time to clean her out. . .(Like he didn't know he was going to sell it? Wouldn't you clean it out either before or during the 5 day's it was up for sale?) Anyway we were so excited to get her home we told him we would clean it out, and it was a MESS. So . . I called it the Crappy Camper because of all the crap in it.

Reason #2 and our favorite reason: Just to hear our granddaughter say. .

We finally named our '53 Flying Cloud "Miss Molly". My husband often uses the phrase good golly Miss Molly so it seems appropriate.

I must say that it took awhile to decide. Immediately after we got her last summer by husband kept asking me what I was going to name it. I'm not usually one to name things, but I knew our trailer had to have a name and it was important not to settle for something that didn't feel right.

...cause she was filled with 1000's of LadyBugs - all hibernating inside when we picked her up last march from Indiana

For those that don't know, an Argosy was an ancient merchant ship.
It is also bad luck to change the name of a ship once it has been named. The Britanis was the world's first cruise ship, it was renamed (to something completely unmemorable), and promptly sank while under tow to its new owners... The Summit Venture (ship that knocked down the Sunshine Skyway bridge), was renamed Sun Venture, and has had nothing but disaster follow her. Exxon Valdez has also been renamed, (I forget her new name) and has been giving her owners lots of problems.
My point (yes, I have one) is to accept the name your Airstream was given by its previous owner if at all possible. Probably nothing will happen, but why tempt fate?

We've always thought of our Bambi as our "escape pod". Recently, when sheltered from the elements, we came up with the nickname "ALUMIWOMB".

Stella

Our '67 Globetrotter is "Stella," named for Wally's wife. We have yet to name our '61 Overlander- nothing has stuck (maybe once we get to camp in her something will come to us) her previous owner named her Tropic Air (but once we finish re-doing her interior she isn't going to be finished in a tropical theme).

Our late kitty loved the Airstream. When it was set up in the back she'd head right to it, wait for us to open the door, hop up on my bed and luxuriate for hours. So, we started calling her the trailer trash kitty and the trailer Cricket's den which has now become Cricket. Every time I go into it for the first time each day I remember that little fur ball and it makes me feel good inside.

Being military retired I named ours "Space A" which is the military designation for Space Available travel allowed on a government conveyance and of course Airstream.

Normaly I name my cars 'people' names, like Madeleine, Theresa, etc, but when I acquired the rig from my brother, Ole81 just seemed to fit, since it IS a 1981 and the big red numbers on it are '8181'....DULL but it fits!
Keep Smiling...

Barry, are you aware you can tell people you own a cat house?

Funny you should happen to mention that.......................... , that was the joke of the neighbors when they would be out back visiting and look in to see Cricket sacked out on the bed.

"Where or When?"

That's the name of the jazz tune that iPhoto attached from iTunes to the slideshow of our maiden voyage in our Airstream. Apple computers are much smarter and perceptive than we humans realize!!!
