Camper names

I saw a post where people were talking about the names they give their campers. We do this and with our fleet of kayaks and canoes we have given them names from Jimmy Buffett songs. Our kids have named the new camper "Little Miss Magic". My DD says that it's appropriate because she pops open to become such a much bigger camper. What have you names your campers and why?

My son in law named our Aviator Wright Flyer "The Hawk" since I'm a retired pilot AND the paint job. Now we just say we are flying the Hawk to where ever.

My last coach was "Thirst-en" because of all the fuel it could drink, 454, 4 barrel, and a 3 speed. We have not named the new camper yet.

On occasion have called ours the Rolling turd, but it really doesn't fit a 2010, so for the most part it's nameless.

That's funny!! We called our last Motorhome OBRT (Out Big Rolling Turd) he was a 1989 Southwind 27 foot class A, big and brown, with delaminating fiberglass and leaks and all sorts wrong, big damage in the bedroom, so I replaced all the paneling in there and cleaned it from stem to stern, but when DW sat on the couch in a big puddle of water and water pouring out of the overhead cabinets .... We traded him in on our new to us 2011 FourWinds Windsport 31D. The wife says to me .... Look its a big white elephant ..... Hmmmmmm I got it!!!! NOW .... I am a HUGE Smokie and the Bandit fan ..... SOOOOOOOO the new Motorhome is called ....... Charlotte!!!!
2011 Thor FourWinds Windsport 31D

It is a Hybrid ... it burns both gas AND money!!

What name do I call my RIG...Well.. I will not tell you.

How did I choose it however.. That I can say.

It was chosen right after there was a loug BOOM as the engine threw a rod.

Nuff said.
Home is where I park it!

My DW named ours (Big Bertha).

So now when I do an online order for parts or updates, and they come in, it's addressed to Bertha, she has her own mailing address.
