Yep, and when I really get lazy, unit becomes an easy word. Maybe we should start using MC rather than MH (which could be mobile home as well as motorhome). I like MC better, then that may eliminate confusion of horses involved, but wait, there are horses involved. Just like the old days the coach still needs horses.

I don't care what others would call mine but it's an MH for me! Oftentimes, friends would ask me what kind of RV I have, so it's also an RV!

MC is the motorcycle I ride after I park my MH at the CG.

Wife and I still call it a trailer (old habits) for the most part and we KNOW that isn't technically correct... but we do it anyway.

Which goes back to RV. Simple to remember and easy to write.

I guess there must be quite a bit of "grey poupon" being passed in all the Coaches . Kinda like some call a "horse show" an "Equestrian Event"..... it's all in where your mind is. I have a buddy that insist that his RV is a Coach and when we are sitting around enjoying a cool beverage anytime he mentions his "Coach"(and it's not anywhere near a true coach", you should see the eyes roll with the other people listening. Even non campers know the difference.

Dern, I should have known MC was taken. ha Guess I better stick with MH or RV. Like many, we still catch ourselfs saying camper. When I went from TT to 5th wheel I tried to use the term fifth wheel more but seems it still got called a camper, now my MH often gets the name camper....old habits, exactly.

I do kind of pause for a moment when someone refers to mine as a "camper" but if bbeane can call his Foretravel a camper I'm good with it.

When we were in Upstate New York they called them Campers. We were parked in one of our son's Drive way and we heard the coach was a Winnabago. LOL We have a Georgie Boy. We are going to get a DP when we get home. OH Happy Days.

Does it REALLY matter what it is called?

What do you look under when searching the yellow pages? Coach? RV? motorhome? camper? motorcoach? recreational vehicle? bus?

Like many I do not care for the term "bus" as my mom calls our 35ft. motor home, darn! one foot short of a "coach". I like to use rig, MH, and RV. Funny, when talking to my bro. and sister in law who own a very nice Jayco TT I try to refer to it as an RV, but invariably call it a trailer, which to me comes across as a bit bemeaning.
