I know Cliff, at the time it was, but Katie or Katie C or Katie's Coach (KC) is resonating with me more lately.

I know, the pendulum....I am my Mother's son, used to tease her mercilessly about being on the pendulum, back and forth,

Wow, I like Katie's Coach better than anything. Katie's Coach. Gosh a welling up of sorrow just choking me...

Katie's Coach.

I love it.

Being a keen golfer, the coach should "Long Driver" and the toad "Putt Putt".
Looked into personalized plates here in New Zealand but at $870 for each set, I will just have to imagine them! May paint it on the front.
At the moment, it is simply "The Beast" - big and handles like a dray.

We name most of our machines. Current Truck is Pepe LaPew, trailer will be Penelope Pussycat when we pick her up. We will call 'em Pepe & Penelope for short.

There's a reason, a logical one at that, as to why water borne vessels are named. In the case of U.S. Naval ships, it was necessary for non Naval type people to be able to locate the ship. I served (among others) on MSO 447, MSO 439, MSC 209, FF 1091, MCS 7, DDG 21, DDG22. Would that mean anything to the majority of people? Of course not, but have someone point out the names, like Guide, Excel, Woodpecker, Unknown, Epping Forest, and Ect. all you have to do is read the name on the stern, or on a sign near the gangway.

Boats and Yachts have names on the stern for similar reasons, to readly indetify them from simular looking Boats and Yachits because registration numbers are harder to remember.

Cars, trucks, and RV's are named by those that wish to personalize such possessions, and in general serve no useful purpose to help identify, or locate that particular owned item.

Although airplanes in service of the USA are sometimes named, it is by the crew, and painted on near the cockpit, but served no particular useful purpose because the "tail number" is usually used for that purpose.

So what does this have to do with naming an RV? Like a name, not a damn thing.

Personally, I have My Car, My RV, and My Tools to work on them!

Should we band together as RV'ers and make this a trend not only reserved for boaters?

In fairness I have seen handful of RV's over the years with custom decals but most of them do not.
I call our Rexhall the Behemoth.

My grandkids (They are 8, 4, & 3) named my husband's YELLOW F-150 "Big Bird" and the 8 year old said when we got our (New to us) PU this past November that it makes it the nest, , Thought it made since so we call ours "The Nest" .

Our daughter named ours Mira (Coachmen Mirada), and gave us a RV Christmas Ornament with that name painted on it.

Being a waterman and from a family of watermen back many generations things get named. Often it has been just to eliminate confusion ("No, I meant the White Garvey..") But as much of the family has French background, we play that for fun.

This coach is Chaumičre - Say Show Me Air -
It means a cottage, usually with thatched roof - that wouldn't last long at 60 MPH.

The 7.9 racing sloop was Bonne Ideč - Say Bonnie Day
It means Good Idea, and it was, but alas, that is just one of the things we have lost to the depression. Hoping it ends soon.
