'62 Overlander, AKA, "Titanic". Most of the folks we camp with have tents and pop-ups. Oscar

Ours is too long to be a twinkie. I wanted Silver Wiener or Silver Weenie, but the wife nixed that, so it's Silver Dollar. I told her Silver DollarS would be more like it.

Our 1979 Excella MH's name is 'Lizzy'.
I usually name our Motorhomes after the first critter I find inside. The last one was called 'Spider'

trailer names

For a change, Murphy's Law wasn't smiling upon me, and the IL Secretary of State's Bureau of Motor Vehicles permitted me to acquire the personalized plate with my '78 Argosy Minuet's nickname - - 78 MINI.

It has been more challenging choosing a nickname for my '64 Overlander - - one friends has suggested "Christine" after the '57 Plymouth Fury in the Steven King Novel - - because the trailer seems to be possessed by Murphy's Law at times - - there was the time that the spare tire mount broke sending the spare tire bounding over the Oldsmobile Cutlass that was tailgating the trailer just missing another Wagon Wheels Caravan participant who was traveling the same route - - then there was the time that the electric tongue jack decided to become a pogo stick and began lowering and raising all by itself while we were traveling down Interstate 90. So far every personalized plate that I have applied for on this rig has already been taken.

We call our 25' Classic, 2002, Ariel. Just like the sound, I guess. My wife names all our vehicles; MH was Mary Ann; never named our 5er but should have called it Dumbo. Jeep is Noelle and our Cad is Felicia.

We named our 78 Argosy Minuet - Minny Driv'r. Minny because she is a Minuet and Driv'r cause she may drive us into debt before we are thru with all the goodies and tinkering we plan to let her have!! Besides, one Minnie Driver is famous and stands out in a crowd, maybe someday ours will too!! Leigh

Our first motor home, an Airstream Excalla 270, was nameds "Big Girl" mainly because of size. Our current Airstream 345 Motor Home was initially nick-named "Big Momma" because she is much bigger than Big Girl, however after she was cleaned and shined up, she was prettier than Big Girl, and in the dictionary, the word "Belle" is an attractive female. Her silver color of course denoted that she was in fact a "Silver Belle". Since to date since owning her, we have not met or seen another Airstream Motorhome, much less an Airstream 345 Motor Home,
we feel she is a Belle of the Road. Big Girl was too garrish and crude for such a beauty. Due to all the favorable and complimentary comments we have received concerning her in our Coast to Coast travels, her name of "Silver Belle" is confirmed.

Talking Not very original...

but we just call our Bambi....Bambi! It's kinda cute, and since none of our friends or family were ever AS owners, it was original in our circle.

A lot of folks we run into at gas stations, rest stops, etc. will compliment us and refer to Bambi as a "Silver Bullet," which I'm sure you've all heard a million times.

Jellybean III

Our 345 MH was called "Jellybean III" by a previous owner. The lettering was not removed but painted over by a later owner. We thought about other names but "Jellybean III" seems to stick. I will re-label the back with "Jellybean III" at some point. I always thought it would be cool if the owner that named it that saw us driving down the road with their nickname still on the back. Highly unlikely though!

I wonder what happended to Jellybean and Jellybean II?

We named our GlobeTrotter "Maxwell" after the original owner...the other choice was "Clytia", Maxwell's wife...but we couldn't get that to roll off our tongues!

I name everything! My '82 Mercedes 380SL was also named after it's original owner...Claire. It fit perfectly as that car was pampered & very well maintained, I bought it in '89 with only 32,000 miles....a true classic! I sold it 4 years later when we moved from CA to CO , but Claire was my favorite car ever!!!

We thought of that, but don't usually drink Coors Light and Sterling Marlin isn't our driver

"Silver bullet" is so apt, and yet so overused, that I had to think of something that is related, short, and not likely to conjure up the image of beer.

"Clayton" is the name of our '85 25 foot Sovereign, which is morphing one piece at a time into a Limited! I'll let you connect the dots.
