How did everyone come up with names for their trailer?
 
I'm clueless, but I've already been asked, "What did you name your Airstream?".

I'm drawing a blank here.

How did you guys come up with a name or did you?

I hear ya. I just don't get it really. To humor some of my acquaintances I've tried to come up with a name but it just doesn't work for me. I can come up with doozies of nick names for friends and family that stick for life. My pets all have half a dozen nick names. My Airstream, when I have one, is "the Airsream", or "the Safari". My truck is "the truck". My boat is "the boat".

I call mine the "Err-stream," as I have made so many errors during my rennovation!

Yup......my 310TD is simply "the rig". I don't get the whole cutesy naming of inanimate objects. Just me, just my opinion, don't kick me out of the club :).

(Oh....I don't do clubs either) dang it.

It is what it is. No need to make up a name. "Slick" is what we call it.
As in, "Let's take Slick camping this weekend." :D

The Baked Potato...
It looks like a baked potato in the foil...
After I registered the name I saw that someone else also named theirs Baked Potato...
I guess it wasn't as original as I thought...

Priscilla. My wife and I are from Australia and decided to name our AS after the movie ... Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

Airstream Name
 
I named my old Caravel Stella just cause it sounded right. When I got the new 2007 Bambi I tried Marilyn Monroe cause she got in so much trouble but I may just call her Stella II. Also referred to as AB---the Aluminium Beast.
