What's your RV's Name???

Like any good captain of any good vessel, it must be named!!!

So what did you name yours - and more importantly - WHY!?!?!?

We have a 1999 Sea View 8330 that we call the The Beach House - or Blue for short... Why - Well where do ou get the best Sea View??? In a beach house!! Blue, because everything is blue inside, carpet, drapes, walls, doors... Ok, maybe not everything, but the carpet is and thats enough!!!

Our previous MH was a class C, it was a 1995 Tioga Arrow 24ft, rental return that we purchased for $3000 to go 4wheeling with... So we Lovingly refered to him as Bubba!!!

Prior to that we had a 1989 Southwind 28ft that we called Rosie - which was the name given to her by her previous owners.. Mostly because that was color of the interior...

So what'd you name yours???
Do you have a picture??

Hi,

We have named our Rv "The Bears Den" due to the fact that my last name in Italian means Bear. So my wife and I travel and live in it when we travel thereby the Bears Den.

Enjoy!

After the last breakdown, it's being called Class Eh hole! Eh because I am Canadian, and hole because it is like a gigantic hole that you throw money into. It also summed up my frustration at the time.

Ours is just the Beaver. Our old toad was Wally. Our new toad is a Malibu and since my name is Ken, the Malibu is Barbie.

Our coach is a brown holiday rambler and we call it the RLN-TRD after watching the Robin Williams movie RV. That is also our personalized license plates/tags......gets lots of laughs..

Moan-a. When I test drove the model it made a moaning sound from the grill. The salemans said this would be corrected on ours. Sure enough it moaned----but also on our first trip lots of things were wrong. We called several times with no success until I ask for the owner---then they came through.

But during the "tension" while we were on the road I said to one person-"and incidently the grill moans and that was suppose to fixed also---so from now on we are naming it Moan-a and when someone ask we are going to tell them why.



Post Script:
Just the other day I answered a thread where a person had a strange moan from his MH---sure enough it was his grill.

Haven't been able to convince DW to do it. We have a license plate ending in "YUR". Since Canadian airport identifiers all start with Y, I thought the airport associated with the three letters would be appropriate as the starting point for a name.

No joy.

Then I thought about the "Rolling Yurt" again, based on the license plate. No way.

Currently, the RV doesn't have a name. I'm still thinking about it, Maybe "HMS" something, since we're both Brits!

If it had been an American Clipper MH, no contest. "Clipper Queen of the Seas" after tha PanAm 747 that was destroyed over Lockerbie, Scotland. As a Boeing engineer at the time, with some colleagues that were on thet flight, a no brainer.
