My sister and brother in law who live on the East Coast are die hard sailors and spend all their free time out on their large cabin cruiser. Last week they asked me the name of our Toy Hauler.... I said we didn't have a name for it.

Yikes, they say...... every boat owner names their vessel!

How come we don't do it and should we start naming our land craft?

Well Howie, I figure there is two ways of looking at this. #1...you can name yours the "Mod king" and everyone else can choose theirs, or, #2...tell you friends that we already have names, its called a "Toyhauler" which makes us unique from everyone else.
Since I have two 5th wheels out there in the garage I address them by, "shall we take the 5th wheel or the warrior", meaning do we take the regular 5th wheel or the hauler?

I'll let those water folks name theirs and I'll just call mine by name, "Warrior". It really doesn't bother me if others have the same name. But if others want to, it doesn't bother me either. what say the rest of you?

In my stste of disrepair I call this thing the "big brown turd",but when she's all better she's just the bus....
When I had fivers they were just "the fifth wheel" or whatever....

As a former "boat person" I know where they're coming from,but you ain't crackin no champagne over the front of thins thing...
