I guess I'm pretentious. I call it "the Airstream". Who knew.

Ditto SeaLevel. And I refer to us not as campers, but trailer trash.

Living in the South where mobile homes are often the dwelling of choice we refer to our trailer as the "single wide" and our van, because no one can prep for doomsday like a good ole Southern boy, by its name, "Bugout."

We had a pop-up camper for almost ten years before moving up to our Airstream.
When we had the camper, we would go camping. Now that we have the Airstream, we call it the glamper and we go glamping because we are enjoying a more glamorous outdoor experience than ever before. It may be an Airstream, but we try to fly under the radar.

We call ours Airstream or camper and her official name is Silverspud. When we see one anywhere, whoever sees it first calls Airstream alert including our four year old daughter and we all wave like crazy people.

Airstreams have been in our family since the 50's.

Grandpa and dad always called theirs "the Airstream". That is what I tend to do, although my wife calls it a "camper". Just not a trailer... LOL

It really doesn't matter "the Airstream", "the camper" or whatever.

You know what you have and that is all that counts.

I only call it an Airstream, in the same dialect as Thurston Howell III...

We call ours the Four Seasons. When folks ask where we're staying, we just say "the Four Seasons."

Never gave it any thought but we call the Airstream the Airstream and the SOB motorhome the RV.

Airstream calls them Travel Trailers

If you visit the Airstream.com web site, you will see that they refer to the Sport, Flying Cloud etc. models as Travel Trailers, which I guess is why we just call it the trailer. It's a very descriptive word, since it's a pull-behind that is trailing us down the road. If someone asks what kind of trailer we have, then I let them know that its an Airstream trailer. Maybe we will switch to calling it our travel trailer once we retire and can start doing more traveling!
