How Did Everyone Come Up With Names For Their Trailer

Ours had a history that has to do with the Eagles and Hotel California, so we decided to call her The Hotel California. It has lots of pieces in it that have to do with this as well for the theme.

Nothing fancy, just a composite of our mother's names as a way of remembrance.

Our Airstream was named by our then a little over 3 year old grandson on the first day he saw it in late 2013. We name pretty much everything around here, so I asked him what we should name the Airstream on the first night he spent in it, and without hesitation he said "How about Pete?".

He was into the new gen cartoon version of The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse at the time, and Pete is the modern version of Pirate or Peg-leg Pete from the classic Disney cartoons......... always causing trouble for Mickey and the gang.......... Luckily our Pete doesn't cause much trouble.

His name stuck, and our coach has been and will always be "Pete". In fact, both our grands (now 6+ and 3+, who camp with us frequently), and all the rest of the family only refer to him as Pete. Actually, ANY Airstream is "a Pete" when the Grands see it........but he is "our Pete".......

Oh, and I added the Shiny part of our AF handle, "Shiny Pete", because I think when I registered, most forms of Pete were taken....

Even though I did make up a name (The Baked Potato) and register it on the official name registry we still call it "the trailer" or "the camper".

We named ours Dora after Dora the Explorer. We were supposed to go exploring all over the US, that was the plan. I even got some Dora stickers for the door and backside. About half the time we call her Dora and the rest of the time we call it the Airstream.

I did name my boat, which is bright red. Our group is deep into Monty Python and we all got Knight (or ka-NIG-it) names. Mine is King so naturally the boat had to be the Watery Tart. Now THAT NAME has stuck.

All of our Airstreams have been named Lucy. As I recall, the original Lucy was named in honor of Lucille Ball for her memorable performance in the movie,
The Long Long Trailer (1954). Lucy's misadventures involving a travel trailer beckoned us to try our own cross country adventures. We did, and the rest is history.

We are now on our third Lucy, and have no intention of stopping. We also name our tow vehicles. Lucy's current travel partners are Olivia and Fred.

Having kids and they all love to trout fish, they liked the name trutta, the latin for brown trout is Salmo trutta. The 6 year old said that the AS was too chubby to be a trout, so the 12 and 17 year olds came up with a term for chubby tout, Trutta Hudda, so that is its name now The Trutta Hudda

Glimmer, cause she travels behind Bimmer.

We do not usually name vehicles, unless it's a boat. Brother does, sister does, but not us. Now we do. That's what smiles do for you. Pat

I call our Bambi the "Lil' Puppy".

Because it followed us home. Also from this funny scene from the TV show Parks and Rec.

I'm just a little puppy.
