I love "Titanium Twinkie" !!!

I just may use that if I ever get a trailer. The current name that we kick around for it is "Room service"

I have to agree with an earlier post, a certan floor plan has called out to us and we will find it.

Under edit;

Changed Hotell to Room service. (Mama didn't like Hotel anymore "Sounds like Hotel no tell" )

BTW My neighbor calls his the "The Fuselage"

We didn't name our trailers until we succumbed to having more than one. The '71 Sovereign became "Large Marge" to distinguish it from the smaller Tradewind, which became "Winifred." My husband hates both names, but it's better than "the big trailer" and "the little trailer." A rather beleaguered friend of ours who has suffered mightily in the love department nicknamed someone in his past Large Marge, and it stuck to the Sovereign. Winifred...well, what else sounds good with "Tradewind"?

The Liner is years away from any name other than something that connotates the sound of money being flushed down a toilet.

I've been toying with 2 names for my trailer.

"Airiel" and "Alloy McBeall"

I like it!

Sue and Ike,

I like "The Royale Flush" for the Liner project. It's even funnier, because the museum where I work used to have a portable "potty trailer" that our parks department used for special events. It's actual brand name was "Royal Flush," and I'm embarrassed to say that I didn't think about the meaning of it at first. I thought it was just a nickname for the trailer.

Here's a photo of "the flusher..."

Guys, are you planning on using one of the "Amflush" toilets in the background as donor units?

Ben works at a passenger car rebuilding facility where retired private and Amtrak cars are rebuilt for private owners and transit operators. That's a good thing for a wife who likes "project" Airstreams that sometimes need the help of his fabricators. Actually, some of the railroad car hardware and lighting would look good in an Airstream that didn't have its original interior.

But, yes, some of those cars in the background are "flushers" themselves.

Thumbs up Royale Flush

Ben and Molly,

How cute is that one gonna be??!! I do believe spelling and pronunciation of "royale" in the European sense is totally appropriate (and a must). Very continental indeed!!

I've been trying to convince Patty that "Silver Slider" would be appropriate for our new Classic S.O. Apparently she feels that slider connotation has some negative aspects...ala White Castles or other gastric issues.

Sliders

Well . . . sliders remind me of mid-rats on the ship! There's nothing like a couple of sliders (hamburgers) late at night, in the dirty shirt locker (forward Wardroom), right after an OK 3 wire (no comment!).

With that kind of a memory how could there be any negative connotations to the word 'slider'!!!

Take care,

Cool trailer name

When we retired a couple of years ago we couldn't decide if we wanted to settle into a condo at the lake or take to the road in an RV. We decided on the nomad life!! The Airstream and diesel GMC cost as much as a condo----therefore we named our 31' Classic "The Aluminum Condo" . We LOVE it, getting ready to spend the winter in Mexico and next summer in Alaska.
