Both our trailers, the 1974 Trade Wind and the 1961 Bambi, are named "Sweetpea".

Murray's childhood pet, a little terrier mix, was named Sweetpea. He loved her and I love the name.

Alice, my wife named it after "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland".

Here's a thread we started on Airstream names.

Talking Meet the Aluminotti

Hubby and I are avid book readers. He's always "mining" (as he puts it) one or two books at a time and I'm usually reading some spy or romance smut one after the other...

One day on the job at the plant the name became apparent to Hank. Hank and the guys were talking about the Catholic Church, the Knights Templar, and all that fun stuff, and the name hit him like a ton of bricks. Let's see if I can follow his train of thought (a dangerous thing!):

  • Airstreams are made from Aluminum.
  • Hubby and I are big book readers- both loved the DaVinci Code and related books
  • Hubby is a HUGE history buff...
  • Hubby is Roman Catholic (no, not a roaming Catholic...LOL!)
  • Interestingly enough my ancestors on Mom's side had some "issues" with the Knights Templar back in their day and held a few captive in their castle.
  • Plus we wanted something unique...

So Aluminotti it is!!!!!!! It's kinda tongue-in-cheek, but we'll take it!

/Lois

We call our '62 Ambassador "Marti" short for Martini, since we have consumed so many of them as we have gone through several restoration projects.

We thought about Ketel 1 for the trailer and Ketel 2 for the TV but just ended up with Marti.

For the record, "Old Rivets" is now named "Elsa"! Our 07 Basecamp is named "Amelia", as in Amelia Airstream. Amelia has her nose art, Elsa still hasn't had hers applied yet. The plan is that Elsa will also get some tailend art - "Thou Shalt Enjoy the Ride" across the back with a pink flamingo done up as a pirate, holding a margarita glass!

Aluminotti is gorgeous! We have similar interiors, how lucky you are to have those extra 5 feet! Love Lucy's size for towing, backing up and such but once we (the dogs & I) get settled I would love the space especially with a 127 pound Great Dane!
