more names

After reading the Forum for a long time, when we finally got our 66 Trade Wind I started referring to it as "Twinkie."

For the license plate, I voted for "BauxBox."

But my husband doesn't think that is such a great name, so our license plate is

"TinGypsy."

Just for me, but I think one of you people with a Bambi ought to name it John! Why you gently ask? Because it's such a 'Deere'!!!
Ooooh! I crack me up!

Compared to the Safari, the Bambi is "Dinky".

My husband and son named our airstream Peppy because our truck's name is little peppy. They got it from a line in Romancing the Stone. I have not watched the movie I just went along with the name. As much problems as I have had with him in the last few weeks I can think of another great name and it rhymes with witch. Just kidding i'm sure in the long run it's going to be all worth it.

My Bambi is named "Sparky" because he is so sparkly and shiny and always wants to get going.

I can not imagine how I ever missed this topic. I did search the thread and found that I was mentioned twice but I had not posted yet! Best that it happened 6this way for now the thread is resureccted and with all the new members we have been getting I hope it will be filled up with many new names.
Our motor home is of the male gender and has been named Chummy by our grandson. We do not know what the word means but when he would get wound up and very excited he would run in circles and yell out "chummy."
Upon purchasing the motor home I was so excited Sammy, my grandson said it was a chummy and the name stuck.

Let's keep this thread going.

Well I named our trailer, and it probably shows my age, and it hasn't shown up yet in the posts, but it was named after a certain adult star film star from the 80's.
I love the idea of painting the name on the side and a new exterior job and pinstripping is on our "dreaming to do " list but I don't know what Steve will say about it....

My Argosy has a big brown stripe around the middle and looks like a reverse "Twinkie", being cream colored. So of course being of the male gender, his name is "The Twink".

SilverTinker

We have named our recently ordered Bambi "SilverTinker", after TinkerBell in Peter Pan. Tink' s a fast-moving flash of light who represents adventure and keeps us young, just like our Airstream.

Airstream 1 has landed!

Yes we've posted this before but wanted to let you all see a completed weekend project.
Due to the paint job and nose art on the bus we are constantly asked if "The President" is on board.
As in "The American President" .. the movie..I often reply.... "I am the President!"
So now it's on for everyone to see. BTW this is the only reference to Airstream on the coach. Seems it had the funeral home identification on it rather than AS prior to going into private service.
