Nickname is just "Condo...."

Can't believe we haven't replied either...

Ours is Condoluminum, which is artful contraction of Condominium and Aluminum... I suppose British pronunciation would be "Condoluminium..." Prior Nomad Box trailer was "Casa de Cardboard" when kids were young (their friends laughed and it helped keep them from swinging on doors or bouncing on beds and breaking the thing..). I was leaning towards "Casa de Beercan" and family vetoed idea, and came up with Condoluminum as more respectable.. Describing it as vacation Condo on wheels made out of aluminum helps explain concept to people who've never seen one...

After many years of sailing and cruising the coastal waters of Fl. and the Bahamas we purchased our 2000 Land Yacht 31 motorhome and named her YachtSea . Now we are looking forward to to some land cruising adventures.

We named ours the Silver Pearl in honor of Wayne's Mother. She's a real gem.

Our first Airstream, 63 Safari was...."The Frantic Banana"

For whatever reason the DW said absolutely not when I suggested "The Frantic Banana II" for the Classic....something about getting older and no longer being applicable...

We have named our 1968 Caravel "The Fawlty Tow-er" in honour of our favourite British funny man, John Cleese.

Blue Skies. On our first camping trip, which was about 6 weeks long, each and every morning I would look up thru the vent in the bedroom and mention to my husband that we had blue skies today. One day after getting up I looked out the window and saw it was completely cloudy and observed that the clouds had really come in fast. At that point mrsin pointed out to me that the vent cover in the bedroom was actually tinted blue. DOH!

I don't care, everyday in Blue Skies is a blue sky day for me.

We named ours Presley. I read somewhere that it was customary to name your airstream after the last name of the original owner. Presley is a very fitting name for ours because when we bought it, it looked like the Jungle Room at Graceland and it even had two bullet holes on the side--- you know Elvis just loved his guns!

Named our 34ft limited that we got to leave in Fl, as a winter retreat---" The Promised Land" It's a little bit of Heaven, right here on Earth!!!!! Easy to live with, and a joy to take care of. Don't get any better then that. Any way when others ask our kids where the folks are, they say we went to the Promise land, and just smile.

we named our trayla "sophie" after the HMS sophie; who, in the war of 1812, kicked *ass when sailing out of Wilmington (the closest city to our new home..refer to our screenname)!
