Great wit here..

I named my Safari "Rubyacht" to play on the Land Yacht, "she's a gem" and famed Islamic poet Omar Khayyam's poem of the same name. I redid the entire interior Moroccan. It's a whole N. African thing.

I'm new to this site/forum, but am inspired to name our 1974 Overlander. Her name is now Aurora! Thanks to all of you for the inspiration.

Don from east texas,
After admiring your puller at the Rocky Mtn. rally, I always thought she should be called Pumpkin in honor of her glorious color. That is quite a rig. What do you think?

We just acquired our Excella 25 after owning a "flimsy" Nomad Weekender for 12 years. In the California hispanic tradition, that was named Casa de Cardboard, in honor of imitation wood paneling and doors that would fall off. We tried "Casa de Beercan" or "Casa de Lata de Cerveza" but were shouted down by family, so after a short competition among family members, our son offered "Condoluminum" and it stuck... Runners up included "The Silver Bucket", Casa de Coors, and Titanium Twinkie..

Pumpkin is the name given to ALL the rigs on the road by Schnieder Truck ---- so I want to stay away from that one <g>.. Think it will be "Mountain Ghost" --- sure does a GREAT job in the mountains.

What's in a Name?

We started calling our Argosy Magellan, as in the original world traveler, but after his personality started showing itself, we have taken to calling it "Old Rivets".

Perry,
There were 4 Marx Bros. Groucho, Hapro, Cheeko and Gummo.
Not sure about the last 2 spellings but I believe the name are accurate.

Astrodokk,
How sweet of you to name your A/S after your sister - does she feel the same way ? hee hee Had you kept her "current" name the A/S might have been a Tin Lizzy. = )

Ours must be named; *THAT TRAILER* said very sarcastically with trailer spoken like tray...ler... all drawn out...

At least that is what my wife calls it when I want to spend money on it
