We have a 1971 Ambassador that we fulltime in is called "Boop", and of course the tow vehicle is "Betty".

The names we use keep changing as does the trailer that we will keep.

Well since the Overlander that got smushed is the one (for now) and with all the patching that is going on (photos to follow next week under a different thread) "Frankinstream" seems to be the one, for now and just may stick.

Our interim choice will be 'The 40 Winker'.. relates to a joke a motel owner friend told us about the other week

Our current camper is called 'PJ Snoozer' or 'The Snoozer' or 'PJ' for short.

"And Airylle is my name..." with apologies to Alexander Pope. The original line goes: Of these am I, who thy Protection claim,
A watchful Sprite, and Ariel is my Name.

Airylle, the Airstream nearly incinerated in a movie pyro stunt, has yet to go on an actual adventure...but soon.

We got ours new so it had no personality. We named it Adventure after the Wally quote. "Adventure is where you find it." because we bought it go have adventures in.
I'd rather be boon docking in the desert.

Very first post from us. We haven't camped in 20+ years and are brand new to Airstream but look forward to beginning our adventures.

Since our "new" motorhome is 24 years old and in need of repair we are at times somewhat overwhelmed with what faces us before he is road worthy. We read and soak up everything we can on the Forum and use the "Search" option often. It is so great to have this much resource in one location.

In the Airstream tradition we named "Seymour" in honor of a former owner. Right now Seymour has more parts missing or broken than what actually works but we love him just the same.

Our current Airstream is the Betty Lou. Named after a B-17 my dad worked on during his Army Air Corp days in WWII. Our new Airstream will be the Betty Lou II.

Welcome Jimarq and Seymour! Glad to have you aboard the forum. We, too, are fairly newbies, so still call our Bambi "baby." In time we will give her a more permanent name. Happy trails to you!

Our girl's name is "Maude." Why not give one American icon the same name as another -- from the same era.
