We wanted a wild and crazy name for our RV, so we call it "The Motorhome", pretty cool, huh.
But to answer your questions:

1. Why not.
2. Why not.

And I am guessing from your post you do not have dogs? Coz those of us who do feel quite strongly about them being true members of our families.

Right on! Although Tasha puppy has been gone for a few years now, she was a part of our family. The house is recently pet empty with my daughter buying her own home and taking Taz with her. ( 20 pound cat the size of a small dog! ) I'm sure some time in the future we will get another dog because we love our animals.
As for the rig... WHY NOT! You paid for it and do whatever you like.
Ours is called TERIS. We are both teachers and have a 32foot front end diesel by Tiffin. If you know the Tiffin slogan then it makes sense.

We've got two really great dogs, plus two bunnies & 8 chickens. Love the dogs, but they are only animals, not as valuable to us as our family.

We did name our three awesome kids, and every boat we've owned... But the motorhome, cars, motorcycles, race cars? Naah, they're all just things.

Didn't name the dogs? but named your boat, why would you name a boat- oh yeah its the thing to do Everybody names their boat.Gotta be like everybody else. As for the race cars every racer I have come across (the succesful ones anyway) always had a name for his car!

Of course we name the dogs, we're just not naming them in the will... For boats, you need to name them for at sea ID purposes, besides yachting tradition. When you hail someone via radio, you use the vessel name. As in: "Avalon harbor, motor vessel "Dream" approaching. Request mooring assignment." That sort of thing.

As far race cars go, I would think naming is more of an oval track thing. We road racers generally don't name our cars, at least in vintage racing circles.

That said, I still think it's pretty goofy to name a motorhome, but feel free if that's what turns you on.

For the original poster; I submit the name "Throbulator"

Obviously the coach has been named 45/45.

Hmmmm......

Main Entry: inane  [ih-neyn]
Part of Speech: adjective
Definition: stupid
Synonyms: absurd, asinine, daft, empty, fatuous, flat, foolish, frivolous, futile, harebrained, idiotic, illogical, imbecilic, innocuous, insipid, jejune, laughable, meaningless, mindless, pointless, puerile, ridiculous, sappy*, senseless, silly, trifling, unintelligent, vacant, vacuous, vain, vapid, weak, wishy-washy, worthless


It's clear to me we don't share opinions in this matter.

We are all individuals with the ability to maintain our own opinions free of the overbearing, pernicious attitudes of others.

On any given day our coach is referred to as "The Hulk", "The Big Green Machine" or "The Hotel Monterey". The first two because it's three different shades of green. It depends on how we're feeling toward it at the time. Sometimes it's just the Coach.

People have been naming inanimate objects for years. I remember my dad driving a truck that he lovingly called "The Red Ball of Fire". The name was kind of an oxymoron. It was bright red and it was pretty, but it couldn't get out of it's own way. If you go to the beach, especially in New England, one of the first things you will notice is that all of the beach cottages have names.
