Does your coach have a name? Story?

Did you name your coach? If you did, what's the story behind your name?

I named my coach HubaRVeski, or Huba for short. The name came about during a get-together with friends. One couple in the group announced they were having a baby boy, so we all pitched in with name ideas. Our group likes hockey, and at the time an NAHL team in Bismarck, ND, had a player named HubaEski. Well why not, what a perfect hockey name for their unborn hockey player! Well, needless to say the couple shot-down the name HubaEski so instead we opted to use it as a framework to name my coach HubaRVeski.

We stored the coach in a storage lot that we passed by often. Every time we drove by the kids yelled "Hi RVVVV!" Hence the name "Harvey!"

Last license plate we got had "PBM" as part of the number, DW said it stood for "Pretty Bodacious Motorhome". When it came time to get new plates (WA required new plates every 7 years for no reason at all) we converted them to a vanity plate and paid the extra fee.

AllyCat (Allison Transmission and Caterpillar Engine), We just call her Ally most of the time. We had a Travel trailer before that which we called Wanda, partly in tribute to my Dad who grew up in New York City. Those who know the NYC accent will know that there is an "R" sound added to the end of some words that end with vowel sounds...so my Dad would have pronounced Wanda as "Wander" which we thought appropriate.
Finally a previous trailer was named Patootie so when going down the road we were "Hauling Patootie"

We own a Monaco Knight. So we bought a stuffed mascot for our rv. He's the knight from Monty Python. So we now call our RV ... Monty! Before that we had a Jayco Eagle. The kids always called it Eglet. And prior to that we owned a Kiwi (it was too small for the family) so the kids called it the Ki-weiner.

We think our motorhome is the "Ideal R V", hence his name is Irv.
