So is your Airstream a him or a her?

Our new Bambi needs a name and I like the idea of a female name. As we all know Bambi is a male so what to do? What is the thinking here among my fellow streamers?Bruce

As Airstreams enjoy a similar status as ships, a female name is most appropriate for a "her".

She. In our case, Wanda is her name.

Well, Duh! How could anything that pretty, curvy, voluptuous, enticing, etc. be anything but a "she"? In our case, she's the "Silver Lady" or just "SL" for short.

With our Navy background, we always think of all RV's and vehicles as female. However, the PO of Little Girl has an Air Force background, and she always referred to the airstream as a "he" as according to her, planes are always male. So, is your Bambi ship or a plane? Or, how about a name that's not gender specific?

I have always felt "she" is female, it is the Bambi thing that confused me.....
I an now convinced that we need a female name. Our current boat is "Esmeralde", a name given to our first boat when I purchased her from a man who had named her "Hummer". No way Hummer was going to stay ! Now we need another name, we will get there...

A friend of mine told me of a young lady named "Bambi". She was very good at what she did on stage. I'll let your imagination take over from there. And then there was the 007 movie where "Thumper" and "Bambi" worked over James Bond. Delightful young ladies.

Not sure why -- perhaps it's as their personalities developed. Our 1974 29 ft Ambassador is a "she" (Emma) and our 1966 20 ft Globe Trotter is a "he" (Newman).

Male or Female?

Hi, the way I see it, is that Airstream trailers are Female and Airstream motorhomes are Male.

I had a friendly discussion with a co-worker many decades ago. He was trying to tell me that my Honda GoldWing was a girl bike and his Harley Davidson was a male bike. Then, I asked him if that was true, how come my bike had a shaft and his didn't? He walked away and didn't talk to me about bikes for several weeks.

Our last name is Modaffari. Our '77 '31 is a vehicle to be used and enjoyed by us as a family. Our away from home. Our own comfy, familiar bed wherever we choose it to be. Thus, it has been named 'The Mod Pod'
