1954 22' Flying Cloud - "Great Prince"
1964 Bambi II - "Bambi"
2002 19' Bambi - "Flower" or "Thumper"

Since we are doing the interior of ours in a nautical/carabean(sp) theme,
in honor of the first (and favorite) ship I was on, we're thinking
"short beach" (AS-9).
Great thread!!

Great thread!!

After Disney, Jimmy Buffett/Caribbean is our second favorite theme in life so we named ours after one of our favorite Buffett songs, "Changes in Latitudes" to match our desired use for our Airstream. We decorated the interior of our 30' Safari in a three way combination of Disney, tropical, and safari motifs.

Our little airstream is called the "S Tardis". As sci fi fans and long term fans of "Dr. Who" on BBS... we thought the name appropriate. The S is for "silver" and Tardis stands for = Time and Relative Distance in Space.

Hubby calls his Flying Cloud a "lady in waiting"... it is waiting for him to get back to work on her! She has been off the frame for about a year now. [Just because his honey-do list is long....]

Mrs. NorCal Bambi (traveling in S Tardis)

Everyone in our family refers to our 19 CCD as the "Armor Hot Dog"

We named our 72 Argosy "Old Rivets", the Argosy 22 rear door rollover we called, simply, "the junker", our Overlander was named "Goliath", because it was so much larger than the Argosies. The current trailer we have named "Bertha", since it is even larger than the Overlander. I don't know what we'd name a 34'er if we ever got one...

Thumbs up

fun thread! When my parents brought home the 34.5 MH I was shocked at the size and said "that thing's the Titanic!" and named it the s.s.caldwell after them. I have since renamed her the s.s.sloan after our family now that we're buying it. Since reading the posts on airforums I have to say my favorite name on here is Zepplinium

How about "Silver Dog House". Husband says he got the Airstream so he can take his new dog hunting, and we did take our first long trip to go pick the pup up in Lovell Wyoming.
