Thread drift and hijacking are common on all forums and other means of communication. We all have our own special interests, points of view, and agendas.

This is true. However, until the person who started the thread has an answer to his question, the thread ought to drift back on-topic once in a while, so he doesn't have to start another thread to get his answer. Just trying to facilitate that.

Lol you gotta point! The only answer Iv got is to try lighter fluid.

When I buy a vehicle from a dealership, I always remove the dealers name sticker. Scrub off the main part with your finger nail or pressure washer then go over it with rubbing alcohol usually does the trick. I might have to try it now that I reminded myself lol

Just to repeat: put a wet towel over the number, and then go over the towel with a steaming clothes iron. Got this from Inland Andy and it worked like a charm. Saves the lighter fluid and fingernails.

Do not think the wet towel thing will work with numbers on since 1981, hope it will though. These things have a way of being part of the panel after a few years. Jim

Really? I start to handwrite an addition to the sales contract that each and every dealer sign on my vehicle will pay me an advertising fee of $150/ea, annually, due on January 1st; the first payment in full due at closing. The salesman takes care of that problem quickly. It's real pleasure when they haven't noticed it until signing time.

MEK is the piece of dynamite in the background. About fourth choice. But it'll git it when other things won't.

Now, as to naming the trailer . . I recommend that the first time that TT tries to pass you in traffic cause you did a half-assed job of hitch rigging besides buying cheap hitch that the name might actually matter. Be careful about naming things that might kill you. It ain't quite so cute, then.

I'm surprised some Marrero boys ain't thought of rodeo bull names. This ain't a milch cow if it gits loose from you. Let that be part of the inspiration for channeling the right name.

To Rednax-

WoW, I'm not sure of your exact intent, but I must say, I'm rather offended by your tone. I'll have you know, we have successfully pulled our Airstream over 4,000 miles, in the 2 outings we've ventured on thus far. We do tons of research on any & all aspects of things that appeal to us, before we make a move. Many others here have expressed "names" for their AS. Perhaps that is what inspired me to want to do the same. And I have. And I'm sure that we'll accomplish other things as well. But I see that I must really sift through the threads, to find the knowledge i seek, from kind & helpful people. Unlike yourself.

You asked for a different way of looking at names in an earlier post, correct?

So I offered a tongue-in-cheek way of looking at "cute names" as a trailer trying to get loose and come around isn't called anything cute by the driver at that point when it's trying to kill them. (When "Bambi" turns into Godzilla).

Same with a rodeo bull. Might have a classic name such as Thunder or Midnight . . . folks still ride the bull. The name has some depth to it. Things may not be what they seem, and the name leads them somewhere in that contemplation. The name might ought to capture some of those other qualities.

When one is asleep and the TT catches fire. (And so forth . . . .) What is wonderful aint so wonderful if the tables turn.

Sorry it came across the way it did. I guess that emoticons are there for a a reason . . when the other speaks in cliches ("short, sweet and sassy") the visual reinforcement is necessary.

And, half-assed hitch rigging on a cheap hitch covers 90% of RV'ers. So I'm guessing that your reading hasn't gone far enough to have come across this citation dating back to the 1950's. I have no idea how you've done yours, as it wasn't at all to the point, but only to illustrate a notion.

Good luck on a name, cowboy.

I like that!

Tumbling Tumbleweed would make you the Sons Of The Pioneers. Can you sing?

LoL... No, Aage, I would never subject anyone (other than my partner) to my awful singing. I have many talents, but I also am smart enough to know, when to keep my mouth shut!
LoL

Haven't seen it in years, but there used to be a comic strip called "Tumbleweeds." Back when I lived in Oklahoma, it was a regular in the local daily newspaper, and one of my favorite strips.
