Our previous rig was 'BURT (big ugly rolling t---). We loved BURT, but recently traded him in on a new Newmar Kountry Star DP -- We call him KURT.

Happy Travels

Jo-Joe- after my God-daughter & me. I went thru the ritual of re-naming a houseboat;
it's easier to trade mo/ho's.

I haven't named my rig as yet, but I do have a name for my towed. When were shopping for a towed, I told my DW that I wanted a $1.00 a pound car. 2500 lbs for $2500 dollars. It took a while but we wound up with a 1998 Ford Escort and I got for about 1./2 the price I was looking at, soooooo.... we call her Fiddy Cent!

I call mine "Possessed". It seems to have a mind of it own at times and likes to take control. Good thing it take controls of little things like the step cover, it works when it wants to work, a/c's will work great on day and then not so well the next. There aways seems to be things that just wont work or turn on and then you try it later and then all is ok. Just seems to add to the adventure!!

"Brier Patch"

I was "forced" into retirement at age 60, although I could not wait!

Brier Patch's name is derived from the Uncle Remes stories that picture Brer Rabbit as having been born and raised in the Brier Patch, a place that is not comfortable for anyone else. "Please don't throw me in the Brier Patch!"

We started with an 81 Foretravel that was called the 'Time Machine'. We traded it in for an 01 Itasca Suncruiser that my family named the Bubba Hilton. We just traded it for an 08 Meridian, which my family named the 'Bubba Ritz'. I even have a sign for it!

We haven't really ever named our vehicles. But, when we bought our "Rocky Mountain Edition" Jeep a few years back its name came naturally: Rocky. When we were shopping for our first RV last summer, we discovered we already had the perfect toad. So, when we found our big brown "moose" on wheels, its name came just as naturally: Bullwinkle.

About then we started referring to ourselves as Boris and Natasha!

Thanks for the fun topic!

- Natasha

Our sidekicks: Bullwinkle, our 2009 Winnebago Tour 40TD, and Rocky, our 2013 Jeep Wrangler
