We keep saying we have to come up with a name - Jeff likes Man Cave. Doesn't work for me - it's a woman cave too! Oh well, guess we will keep talking about it.

Barry & Terry,
Really got a kick out of the humor from you BOTH! Thanks. I haven't given it too much thought until now (been out of touch too long), but we simply call it "The Argosy." Not too original, and it doesn't leave much to the imagination.

We have friends that have a 20' Argosy M/H and they call it "Rollie-Pollie"...it pulls their 20' Argosy named "The Mother-In Law Unit". Guess who stays there?

Very cute moving down the highway together...

Our '78 6 Meter Minuet is called "The Brave Little Toaster", or BLT for short. Just seemed natural even though it isn't silver. Strong intrepid personality going down the highway to wherever.

We finally have a name and sex --

It's a girl!!! And her name is Pita (AKA pain in the @@) I keep telling Jeff he has a new girlfriend. As if his computer wasn't bad enough (her name is Bertha).

Talking More fun names...

We won't name our Argosy until we've gone for a first camping trip.

Some of our other vehicles have aquired names over the last year.

We Have a '96 roadmaster station wagon we call Titanic occasionally because she sunk on her maiden voyage. Broken fuel pump while driving home from picking her up from previous owner.

The '06 Audi is called Naggy because she dings constantly until you put your setbelt on. There is a reason for the high safety rating on the Audi -- nag u until u comply with all safety features.

I named the GPS system that I use in Naggy. It's a Garmin named GIGI.

Will post the Argosy's name as soon as we get the "feeling" that one is right.

There's no rush; we plan on having her for a while. Yes, it's female. That could change too. lol.

Pattersontoo, we have multiple engineering degrees in our home. DH is an ME and I'm a EE. I think u could use your background to play gEEk with naming the Argosy. You could call your Minuet the Nano (because it's a shorter length) or MEMS (since it's a small trailer and MEMS is the electronics acronym for Micro-Electro-Mechanical System. I think a small trailer is nicely suited to MEMS). There are plenty of electrical acronyms to have some fun with and that would logically fit your Argosy. If you decide to stay with just Argosy or Minuet, that's fine too, of course if your trailer remains unnamed, then we can call you gEEk! Just kidding.

Fun thread. Thanks for posting.

Allie

The Twinkie

A friend of ours dubbed it "The Twinkie" while making sure the tow rig was ready to pull our 74 Arogsy 28 on our maiden voyage to Crater Lake Oregon.
"The Twinkie" took and stayed.

Ours is the "Jeanneellen", in memory of our mothers, Jeanne and Mary Ellen, who would have loved our Argosy. Our TV is a white Caravan CV (no side windows), so our neighbor refers to the whole rig as "an egg pulling an egg".

Hi, my first post. We just bought our 76' 26 footer and haven't even used it yet. Our last trailer was a 31' Gulfstream (92' model). I got tired of going out to check for leaks every time it rained. Got rid of it and got a real trailer. We love this Argosy. Kids wanted to cal it "Our Goosy" but I think "The Fabulous Superlative" better fits it. John

Congratulations. These Argosys are great trailers. I have a 78, 24ft. and so far have never had a leak. Well, I've never found it if it's leaking. I do caulk it every year, but so far I have not found any evidence that it has ever leaked. I hope you have as great a time with your as we have with ours.

Welcome, DriverJohnLH! I like Our Goosy better, it's easier to say than anything superlative.

I never understood how people come up with nicknames so easily and I've never been able to name anything other than what it is. But, our Argosy came with a name so it is,

SNOW WHITE

We liked it and it just seems right.
