We moved on from the Argosy (the Beluga) so long ago. But just never had a name that stuck with the Safari. And yes, we had the same problem with naming our daughter -- nurses jokingly threatened not to let us go home until we had a name.

A name finally stuck this month - Amelia Bedelia after the children's book series. This name comes from all the 'misunderstandings' we continue to have but enjoyably work it out in the end.

Well the first thing we did several years ago right after we picked up our '56 Overlander whale tail was try to come up with a name. Of course we wanted it to be whale related in some way. The first one that came up of course was Moby. It was also the last one to come up. Sorry for our lack of creativity, but since we have started our shell off redo, I think it is time to make it official. Moby has stuck, and I love it.

When we called on the Airstream we saw on Craigs list the guy said to meet him at the Olney store in Oregon. We had never herd of Olney and thought he said Only. We thought to call it Only but settled on Olney cause thats where it came from.
I like Olney, not a great name but we will call it Olney

My 1982 Avion 30P is named "Stella" (From James Dean - A Streetcar Named Desire). She is definitely an obsession.

Would you rather have a mansion full of money or a trailer full of love?

Eire Stream, pronounced "air", Gaelic for Ireland, and since I own an Irish Shop and do Irish festivals with it all Summer, the name just fits.

We haven't picked a name. Several have come to mind, but none have stuck. Baked Potato, Road Toaster, Silver Twinkie...

I named ours Shiny, to force myself to polish it. Didn't tell anyone until it could live up to the name.

Oh, and I also have a silver TV. (But that's no big deal is silver is one of the three most popular colors..)

Silver on Silver...we tried very hard to buy a silver truck to no avail... We call ours "TED" shortened from "Limited" and to give it a persona... Your military reference brought back fond memories...please don't take this the wrong way but we enlisted types would refer to Lt. Col's as "Telephone Colonels". When we got phone calls from you, you (they) always referred to themselves as Colonel such and such... Good times!
