We are renovating / remodeling our 88 Excella. Hubs and I were joking one day that we should name her Stella since Stella is getting her groove back. Besides we think Stella the Excella has a nice ring to it.

No, that wasn't us. We have a blue Ford F-150. We purchased on April 22nd, and have done just a couple weekends so far to Trough State Park (nice) and in New Jersey when we purchased from Colonial. We are headed to the Skyline Drive area this weekend. So looking forward to it! Are you going to the Rally in Clarion PA on July 4th? It will be our first....not sure what to expect, but looking forward to it.

It'll just be our Airstream, I'm satisfied with that and it could care less.
I talk to mine too... and by "to" I mean "at"... And by "talk" I mean "curse".

We haven't purchased ours yet, but you KNOW I've named it already! We're looking for a gutted one so we can redo it in the next year or so. It's name? Baked Potato. BKDPTATO

I am naming our, soon to be delivered FC 19C bunk, "Modine". This was the fake name my mother used to go by, when she didn't want to give her real name. Her and her sisters all had fake names.

I even got a Modine sticker from: http://www.standarddecal.com/index.p...oduct_id=34328


Now I just need to decide where to put it on the camper.

You want to know why some people name there Airstreams cause it right of passage. I mean they are in a class by themselves. They look like spaceships and the factory in Jackson Center it's called the Mothership. It's like a old Volkswagen they are cute and you smile when you see them. Well Airstreams are so cute and cool they need a name. Mine Airstream name is Agnes. She named after my Grandmother that loved to go RVing.

Hey, Modine is real, and he rides in a UFO. A perfect name for an Airstream.

My airstream told me to name it (apparently it objected to an anthropomorphic gender distinction) the silver phallus but we objected and told it this was too crude...no compromises yet. Not sure I can reach a compromise with this apparently juvenile object.

My mothers cats would come when I whistled, or if she ran the electric can opener.

Typical cats. Perverse.

No actual name for ours yet. I've been calling it, generically, the "silver twinkie" - a name my wife hates for whatever reason. To keep peace in the valley I've now begun referring to it as a "pickup Pullman"...

Maybe, if we follow the "Pullman" car analogy, we could name it "Chessie", after the "Sleep like a Kitten" logo of the Chesapeake & Ohio trains of the 1930s. Let's see if that sticks...

Oh, we're pathetic... we "name" everything... our Airstream is "Fortune Cookie" (being an International Serenity). The tow vehicle is "Cookie Monster."
