Now its:

Our RV's name is the motorhome because that's what it is.

At times we have called it "The Money Pit" and when things are going good we called it our "COW" Condo On Wheels.

Generally, when things are on an even keel, we'll refer to it as the Cramalot Inn.

Ours has the potential of being referred to by several names - generally which one used at any given time having to do with it's current reliability factor. Some are not so kind, or repeatable in a family environment....

Talking What I call mine

I should have called mine Holy [moderator edit] as that is what I usually say when I get the bill for some damn repair on this thing. But I often refer to it as the RIG just cause it sounds tough, which it has been as I have been over some rough roads with this old sucker. Now with this question what do you call your rig ? I realize I have been neglectful and should come up with a cute name like other people do, but my mind cant seem to focus on something cute referring to this thing. Maybe I need some suggestions EH?

My wife dubbed ours "Tinker" because I was always out tinkering with something or the other on our very old class C. We are going to drive the old girl across country next May, hoping to get all the way to Newfoundland and back, after attending our granddaughters wedding in the Soo mid May.

We are now on Norv Orbus III. Our front license plate frame says "Hello, my name is Norv Orbus".
I LOVE This!! Seriously one of the best yet!!!

As you may notice with all the 'cute' names on here, its an organic thing... It has to come naturally - My sister's 95 Rockwood Frontier's name is Rocky (i know, original right...) and her in-laws 04 Coachman is called The Coach (again, very original) but named none the less...
I find i can't develop a reltationship with the coach unless its got a name, and anything we spend that amount of money on we've got to develop some sort of reltaionship with.... RIGHT!?!?!?!

I started out calling ours "The Green Monster", but I've since shortened it to "The Beast".

It IS a beast, in every sense of the word- It's huge, burly, a little scary sometimes, and it yanks our 3-1/2 ton boat around like it's not even there...

(Now if only we could ever get a boat and a motorhome that matched!)

Magic Bus
We have an Allegro Bus, visit the Magic Kingdom (Ft. Wilderness) often and are Orlando Magic fans.
It also feels magical every time we head out on the road.
