Sorry, I just don't get the naming thing with RV's, cars, motorcycles, etc.

It makes sense for a boat, both for documented vessels and for radio communication.

To each their own.

Welcome to the forum! I'm a relative "newbie" too. I see we are practically neighbors. Is your unit on the Airstream Registry on their website? I thought I saw it there. Can I ask, how long from the time you registered, did it take them to put it online? I've been waiting over two weeks now.

A lot of guys name their tractors but I ever saw a need to.
Until I got a 3 cylinder 4000 gasser. It is thirsty.
So I named it Musashi, after the WWII Japanese battleship.
At battle speed Musashi burned 70 tons of fuel per hour - yes Seventy Tons.
By the way, Rocinante was the name of Don Quixote's horse.
Rocinante was known to get into a trot on occasion but was NEVER known to break into a full gallop.

Can't see a reason to name an inanimate object. I do call it names when I get mad, but none of them stick.

And I call my Avion the Pewter Palace. The Eddie Bauer is "Eddie Haskell" from Leave it to Beaver - you know he's up to no good, but you just can't catch him in the act. The one before was "Foiled Again" and the first one was "Tin Lizzie" - the nickname for all Model T Fords

We informally call the safari "The Silver Playpen". We haven't discovered a name yet for the Sovereign or the Classic. The around the world Airstream is "Marco Polo".

I am not into naming trailers or TVs, etc. either. But my wife is! On our way home to IA from Delaware where we bought the AS our son called to check on our progress. He said to his mom "How is the chrome Twinkie?" That is the source of our trailers name and personalized license plate which is "2WINKIE"! All of our friends now know what to call our AS.

Yes, my wife registered it and she said it took a few weeks for confirmation.
We were at Gettysburg campground back in April and I saw an Airstream there being pulled by a Ford Expedition (silver?) Was that you?

My 1966 Airstream was named Aunt Bee (appropriate for the era) and my new 2016 is named Christie after my dear friend that passed away. She loved Airstreams and her last request of me was to go camping in my Airstream. Unfortunately she passed before we got to do so.
