Man, it must be the altitude GENE.... Mine is also just the "trailer" or "airsteam" and when I was putting the belly pan back on many unmentionable adjectives.

Every vehicle is just called what it is, Maybe this is uninspiring , but it seems practical when talking to others about them.

What if I said; "hey johnny has been giving me trouble" The person I was talking to would think it may be my son. When I was referring to my truck...

Keeps life simple when we have a 75 truck, 89 Jag, 90 Jeep, 01 4 runner, and a 08 Sequiea, also 3 utilitiy trailers,a tractor and the Airstream.

It's bad enough we named the cat, dog,and horse. Thanks goodness the kids didn't name the chickens, Well they did name the 2 Rabbits that escaped (by accident Really) and there still hanging around, wheres a fox when you need one...

The 03 Classic was the "PITA", if you don't know why, don't ask.

After several seasons of making it right, it's morphed into, "Cloudsplitter", just seems to fit as we spend a lot of time in the Adirondacks.

I am familiar with PITA and POS and have used those on occasion.

We named it The Silverdome because (a) I grew up in Detroit area not far from the stadium, (b) it really fits. surprised I haven't seen it elsewhere on the Forum.

The Crappy Camper

When we 1st bought our AS it was a total mess. Nothing worked and everything was so dirty. One day my husband ask what i was doing and i said "Still cleaning the crappy camper!" ....then the grand kids started saying "I love the Cwappy Campo" it was so cute hearing them say it, It kinda stuck.

Now that we have almost completed a remodel we are thinking of a different name for her.....I'll let you know what it is when we change it...

"Cwappy Campo"
That is kinda funny, and much better than the given name on the movie 'RV'

Names are most important in all things...
Would you want a car called G4 ? or Gran Prix ?
Mustang? or Edsel ?

I will not even vaction in a place without a cool name, as my state names its Gulf Coast...'Gulf Shores' whooo weee...
I'd much rather 'Cyrstal Springs' without ever being there.

Our is quiite simply called "Henri", after the original owner. Is that the OO?

Anyway, as others have said, there are several other names used, particularly when I bash my head on something.

It's not easy being 5'17" tall!

We call our classic AS MH Laverne. She is big, buxom, and beautiful.

Artemis was also a friend to mortals, dancing through the countryside in silver sandals and giving her divine protection to wild beasts and the very young.

Am I over thinking this just a bit?? What do you think
L&R,
I don't think you are over thinking it at all. I think Artemis is an excellent name for your Airstream.

We had a tough time naming our motorhome

and the kids were stuck on anything that reminded them of the movie "RV" and the "Big Rolling Turd" like the Silve Turd, the Big Rolling Silver Turd, etc. You get the idea. Needless to say, that did not work. Then the boys moved on to all sorts of weapon or bullet related names. That didn't fly with me, either. Hubby finally came up with A Silver Lining and I call her Silvie for short. The "silver lining" has many meanings to us and I like that it is both symbolic and obvious at the same time. The boys do not like it and refuse to call her anything. But, since I am the one doing the cleaning, packing, stressing, etc. in Silvie, I can call her what I want.

We had the same issue with our cottage in Nova Scotia. It had to have a name, but it seemed like all the good, clever ones were taken. My mom came up with A Breath of Fresh Air and we loved it. It works great for advertiving, too, since it puts it in the beginning of alphabetical listings.

Anyway, that's our Silvie's story. Good luck with the naming. It sure beats calling it the camper, coach, truck, that thing out there...

"Le Petit Chateau Argent"

Hi, we decided that we wanted a French theme. Something different. Seems that most Airstreams have Palm Trees, Pink Pelicans [Flamingos] Surfer, or Beach themes. We thought that "The Small Silver Castle" would be neat. So "Le Petit Chateau Argent" is what we ended up with. We haven't put this name on our trailer and it is mostly referred to as "The Airstream." After about three years of ownership we finally decorated our livingroom and kitchen with French looking items. Later we decorated the bedroom with an Asian theme because we couldn't find any small, light weight, French items to use in the bedroom.
