Our MH name has a bit of history to it. 15 years ago we started a club called the Patroitic Sons of Constitutional Liberty. The PSCL would meet once a month on a Saturday with massive amounts of firearms to shoot, then we would grill, then we would show movies on a 20' portable screen and drink lots of rum. A few of us had 16mm projectors. When someone asked if we could be anymore strange, I said sure, we could dress like pirates. Well we started to do that and we all took pirate names. That's how I got the nickname of Bones.

We bought a GMC bus which was named Tortuga (Spanish for turtle as well as a known hangout for pirates). When we got our Barth it became Tortuga II.

The "Lazy Hog Inn" and my DW found an image of a hog and I made a sign out of it. Why HOG? In respect to the bikes I tow in the trailer, 04 ULTRA & 04 Heritage.

Well, We haven't named ours yet, as it's our first mh,,, and only had it a few months. Looking at it, Europa's are pretty rare,,, and the look of the front, I'd name it "Aardvark" . She changed that to "The Ark" ,,, We Love it,, a 95 model, jumped right in (after new tires and things, and a good looking over by my mech friend) , and took our first trip from Arkansas to Arizona and back. No problems at all, and 13.39 mpg ! So it will be an affectionate name...

Well, somehow, Jan began calling ours Matilda. Where that came from, I don't know. It seems to me that's kinda feminine for such a manly motorhome. ha ha ha
Me & my Hun RVing for fun!

I thought we were the only people that named our vehicles. Our motor home is EV which could stand for evacuation vehicle since we live on the Gulf Coast of Texas. We prefer to EV being named for excape vehicle because is takes away from the reality of day to day drudge. Our toad is a jeep with the name of Prissy.

We have owned 4 MHs. The first, a 1970 Pace Arrow, was named "The ancient one". Our current one is a Fleetwood Storm. It's named "Stormy". My wife names them.

The "Cat House". Signature is explanation enough...we (the humans) are definitely outnumbered and exist purely to "serve"...just ask them (the cats)

In Texas and other parts of the South a "Cat House" has a totally different meaning....

On our 4th A and never gave any a name. We just say the bus, so I guess that's it's name but never thought of it that way. Never call it a her or he either. Been very lucky also and have never had to call any b&#*erd.

Yep...have southern roots (Carolinas and Tennessee). We get some smirks...you'll note it is The Cat House, not A Cathouse The front porch light is yellow, not red... Tongue-in-Cheek. What's the point of being "old" if we can't have a little fun with it?

Most of the time we still call it the camper but the DW calls it my mistress as I seem to always sneak off and spend time with the MH. She say's that I pay more attention to the MH than I do to her.

When we first got the motor home, we got a key chain engraved "The Double Decker" because there are two of us and our last name is Decker. However, it has a nickname of Moho as that is what we call it most of the time.

We have just recently up graded from a pop-up to a travel trailer. When we got the pop-up, we referred to it as the "Tin Tee Pee", as we up graded it from a tent.
Now we were in a delima, as I really did not want to refer to our new TT as the "Tin Tee Pee"
Our Travel Trailer sort of named itself. When we got serious about hunting for it, we have had 4-5 months of no rain. Well guess what? It started to rain on the lot when we were looking at it, It rained harder during the Pre delivery instruction, and on its maden voyage, We got S O A K E D to the skin. Hence I have stencelled on the rear bumper " T H E R A I N M A K E R" We got some questions when we pulled it into Springfield, Missouri in September, as they were in a dry weather condition also. I think it has lived up to its name, as we have had some sort of percipitation on each of our outings Jimm Zi/
