I named my 35 footer, "Space A", in deference to free military retiree travel on space available basis. As the name implies the space is Airstream's largest trailer because it has slide.

How we named ours...

Years before we ever got a trailer, we bought a small goat made out of tin. We just liked him. Put him in our garden, what have you. When we bought the trailer, it jus felt obvious to us that we should dub it the Tin Goat and bring along our tin goat as our mascot. The picture below is on our maiden voyage when someone at the campground apparently felt the tin goat should celebrate.

As a side note, we bought the tow vehicle before the trailer and knew its purpose was to tow our trailer. So we call the truck the Freedom Machine - towing with it speaks to our freedom when we retire someday and the feeling of freedom we get from camping.

Thoroughly unnecessary but fun for us personally. Your mileage may vary....

Ive always liked the "life is good" brand and it usually has a Daisy next to it. I put a life is good sticker on the back window and a Daisy sticker on the front window and just started calling her "Daisy"

It was eventually an easy choice

When I bought mine the former owner gave me the name. I forget what they called it. My father was at Pearl Harbor and was a survivor and growing up as an Air Force brat I have a love affair with WWII aircraft and their nose art. It hit me one day that my love of the Airstream was closely aligned with those aircraft so it was appropriate to give it the following name:Click image for larger version

What a fun thread this is! For those of you who didn't or won't name your trailer, I don't call mine by name. But its unofficial name comes from a friend who is into mid-century modern (and has been since the mid-century when he was born). He named it "Flash" for Flash Gordon. Now if you remember Flash Gordon...you have a lot of time now to tool around in your Airstream!

Alice and Ralph

We named our Flying Cloud 25FB Alice and our 2016 Ram Ecodiesel TV Ralph as in Ralph and Alice Kramden from the 1950's show the Honeymooners because the airstream reminded us of this era of time.

Our '66 Tradewind was previously owned by a guy who had bought it five years before, meaning to restore it. Unfortunately, he came down with cancer and passed away. His son-in-law, a friend of ours, was handling the sale for his mother-in-law. As we were pulling away, she stood there wiping a tear from her eye. When I asked the son-in-law what his father-in-law's name was, he said it was Hal. So we naturally named our Airstream Hal.

"Silver Mistress"

"Silver" for the obvious reason

"Mistress" She's pretty to look at, high maintenance, I tend to spend a lot of money on her, drives me crazy at times, but have had wonderful experiences with her.

You guys have some great stories and are so creative!

Looks like Hubby wants to name her and here are his choices so far:

1) Miss Virginny
2) Homer
3) Steal Magnolia, which if we're going that route, why not Shelby or Truvy?

My one suggestion:

Tin Ginny

If you're thinking Steel Magnolia - why not Aluminum Magnolia
