Does your coach have a name?

Last year, while heading to the Fingerlakes for the fall colors with my mom, BIL and sister, I decided to name my coach.

It took all of 15 minuets for my mom to pick the perfect name.

Henceforth, my coach shall be named:


To Go Go Bo Gee

Gloria a.k.a. Go Go

Perfect! I think I'll have a large back cap sticker printed...

Ours is "Shurley".
This is two fold:
1. It contains the last name of a family member , hence the mis-spelling.
2. "Shurley" she will cost us problems or money down the road.

She was originally named "The Beast", but being close to a vintage RV and being stored outside in southern Arizona for a long period of time, we had several "issues" with her in the beginning. Felt the name wasn't a match.
She seems to like the new name.

Ours is "Pooh Bear." Winnebago became "Winnie," then "Winnie the Pooh" until we finally settled on "Pooh Bear."

Back in 2001 when we were looking for coaches, my daughter looked up at the front windshield from the outside and said "boy that is a big Discovery" hence the name BigD. Unfortunately the BigD was lost to a catastrophic fire and now we have the BigD2.

I never should have let our Grandkids watch the movie "RV" starring Robin Williams last summer while camping in our MH. If you saw the movie, you know what they named ours.

Our coach has a few names. They tend to change with our mood. For instance, if it's been behaving for a while, it will have one name (Cramalot Inn), but if something that's going to be a big inconvenience breaks in the middle of a trip, it's going to have a very different name.... and being we're family oriented, I'll not write that one here.

Had a Winnie some years back I called cow. (cabin on wheels) Had so many problems I felt it deserved the name cow. Before you Winnie owners attack me, let me state that I found out too late that it had been wrecked. That experience was very helpful in choosing the next two purchases. Experience is an excellent teacher.
About 20 years ago I had a really nice class B that was painted bright yellow. Naturally that was "Big Bird".

I have several names for my rig while I get it ready for next summer. None of which I can repeat here.

We just refer to it as "The Beast" because it's so big.
