Actually, John, they each have their names prominently displayed on them written in Sharpie.

Exactly, that would be way too predictable for me.

HippieChickie~ Names just come, we had no intention of naming her but she just looks like a Silver Bell (The Christmas Song-Silver Bells), so we named her "Belle" and its a lot easier to call her that than da-tradwind, or da-camper.

Lately I've noticed the generator being called "Jenny" also....

Funny, I've never been in to naming anything inanimate as well although I've called them names from time to time, as you can imagine, when say a bolt stripped as I was trying to get it replaced to meet a deadline . But those wouldn't be names I'd be telling anyone else anyway.

But the Flying Cloud has been a whole different story. From the moment we got it home our little old kitty adopted it. She loved that trailer and if the door was open on it when we were out with her in she'd go, up on the bed (my side ) . The trailer quickly became "Cricket's trailer" and it continues even though she passed a year after we got it. To me it is not what it is, but what it represents. A memory of a sweet little soul who loved to be in "her" Aistream that she was willing to share with us, as long as we didn't take up too much of her space on the bed.

I'd have to agree! Naming an inanimate object is odd but it's the joy these little (some biggg) trailers bring. We build a lot of fun memories while camping in our Toaster (some not so fun but memories none the less) and thats what why I belive we have become so attached to them! Every time we plan a trip or see her I smile and can't wait to hit the road. My other half (most say better) and I take our two labs and we make quite a time of it! It's brought us closer together and we will have many miles of smiles and laughter in our little toaster!

Bring on the AS love fest!

People have been naming inanimate objects all along. It doesn't seem at all odd to me.

I live in "California," not "the middle of the western edge of my continent."

I'm not averse to personalizing an object rather than relying on someone else's label, especially when it has such a big place in my life.
