Smile I'm having problems!!

I've picked out a name for ours, but alas, it's a hard sell convincing the other half. She doesn't want any part of our A/S if I to use the name I want. She used to call it "that thing", but that was right after we bought it & before we had the axles replaced, so we could use it. With the name I prefer I feel she's being totally unreasonable, but then again some of it could also be the 45 years of marriage. See we used to have a local they called "Four Winds". Never knew what direction he was going, he'd just go. We think they were lucky as they had but one son called "Long Winded". You really wanted to avoid this kid, as he could go on & on. At times I thought both were a gas to be around, but it got old after a while. At least to me it seemed that way, so I tried to avoid them or stay upwind. It's really sad what they say happen to them. Had a bad accident one day and from what I heard---don't know if it's true--but supposely they were together talking when "Four Winds" lit a cigarette & poof. They say both left in a loud bang & a puff of smoke & flames. It was bad, so bad even the EPA got involved. They thought from the smoke & the smell someone was burning old tires, or something, well you know--it's that not legal stuff. So out of respect for good the neighbors we once had, I figure we could honor them by naming our A/S "Breaking Wind". I think it kinda sounds "classy". What'd think???
Best,

I think your wife is a wise and saintly woman.

I name my trailer "Freda" after the Mexican artist because I think Airstreams are works of art.

Thumbs up Name Database

What is the easiest way to see if the name you have in mind for your A/S is currently being used? I have scanned through this list. And then tried doing a SEARCH of the name and found no matches. Does that probably mean no else has *claimed* the name, yet?

Redeagle, I'd say it's a pretty good bet that your nickname isn't "claimed" then.

"Moby" is "beached" in the hay barn for the winter. We named him that because when we got him home, we found that he wouldn't fit in the shop, and by the time we backed up and went forward and turned and prodded him around, I said "It's like moving a whale"..... end of story. No, end of chapter, beginning of epic.

Talking Tin Lizzie

With a last name of Ford, Tin Lizzie was a logical name - a nickname for a model T Ford.

I call my Airstream the "Bauxite Bungalow"!

I'm amazed when I think that most of the trailer I live in came from rocks in the ground!

1) From the Bauxite ore extracted from open air strip mines,
2) to smelting the alumna from the slag,
3) to Alcoa milling and rolling the big sheets of aluminum
4) to Airstream cutting, forming, drilling and rivetting the aluminum into the recognizable shell of the trailer,

is a glowing testament to the American ingenuity and industrial spirit!

Cool Name for our new Airstream

We are going to call our new Airstream "Hi Yo Silver, Away!" As we will hook up and be away to new places to see and do new things. We hope, maybe illogically, that no one has used this phrase already to describe their Airstream. Other than the Lone Ranger of course..................

Great nickname. Along that theme, I hope you can pick up some Lone Ranger DVDs at Best Buy, so your kids will be able to enjoy a great TV show that we grew up with in the late '50s and early '60s. Don't forget the William Tell Overature CD as you drive off into the sunset.
