Willard was my fathers name. He bought an Airstream in 1958 and hauled our family all over the US for the next six years. Fond memories!

We bought our Airstream so Sparky, our White West Highland Terrier (commonly known as a " Westie"), can have a larger kennel than our car or airplane travel would allow. Thus, the AS is our "Westie House".

Years ago as I was coming out of a nasty divorce I bought a ski boat and named it "Separate Asset". My second wife hated that name so has been in charge of naming stuff ever since. She loves doing that and has names for our tractor, UTV, riding lawn mower, car, truck, etc. When we bought a large boat she named it "Smitten" as she fell in love with it on sight. She has decided to call our AS "Chara" which is Greek for Joy.

Dancer, from Dancing til the end of time, sung by madelaine peyroux. A fitting name for a rig that enables adventure. And she's ably pulled by the road dog, so the entire rig is called - dancer and the road dog!

Ours is named "Firefly" for the SciFi series, where the "Serenity" class tin-can space ship roams the galaxy. "Firefly" seems to fit with our aspirational camping dreams too.

Our AS got its name because my youngest son (original owner) and I have Ham Radio licenses, and spent a great deal of time wiring radios and antennas into the AS. Since we have the rear desk as a place to operate the radios, the name "Silver Ham Shack" was kind of obvious...

Our 1984 Excella was named "Stella" by the previous owners - much easier than trying to come up with our own name and has a nice ring to it.
Because of course we have a blog, every hipster family is remodeling an airstream these days and has a blog.

My daughter, a stand-up comic, suggested "Airstream of Consciousness." I like it.

My late sweet mother-in-law was named Ollie Faye, I thought Ollie was fitting. I named my boat "Fogducker".

My truck is "the truck". My boat is "the boat".
Ditto....except mine is an Overlander
