The "Grande Dame"... what we respectfully call our oldie-but-goodie ...because she's so elegant and stately, with the impeccable manners and dignified bearing one would expect from her lineage. When she makes her "entrance" at a CG and glides smoothly down the lane, people who know their coaches take notice and nod politely.
(Well, OK, we concede that warmth and friendliness as a given among this unique and close-knit community ...but I speak of a palpable level of respect beyond that wonderful norm ...and I never expect it, but always sincerely appreciate it.)

Don't get me wrong... in reality, we realize that she is an older MH with the squared and segmented appearance of the coaches of her time; when "end caps," window openings and bumpers were not so seamlessly integrated. Looking at the graphics, and color schemes... one can almost hear those old ABBA songs playing!

But we can easily get past those superficial elements of styling, graphics and color schemes, because we are continually amazed at how well EVERYTHING in this old girl still functions. The solid oak interior finish, doors and cabinets with recessed panels, pocket doors with smoothly functioning hardware, inlaid Corian countertops ...all of these things speak about the enduring value of high-quality, old-school craftsmanship.

That we are able to effortlessly cruise down the road at 70 MPH and carry on a whispered conversation ...that all the systems and controls, safety and convenience items still work flawlessly ... that she is so very solid; the things endear this fine old lady to us. She is our dependable transport, protective shelter, safe haven and benevolet matriarch ...and we love her all the more for her minor blemishes.

Certainly, we do at times cast admiring glances and smile approvingly (well, OK... sometimes there's outright ooggling and major drooling) at the sleek, stylish, smooth and ultra hi-tech futuristic look of more contemporary coaches. ...But we do so with utmost discretion to avoid commiting the faux pas of offending our remarkable "Grande Dame".

Yes, I DO realize this was supposed to be a simple "Whats the name...", but I stongly believe in paying all due respect to one's "elders" all things.
... and I'm pinned down recuperating from surgery and I got nuttin' else to do for awhile, Thank You kindly for your tolerance.
All the best to all of you,

mm well I used to call the RV Bessie but as we have not got our 5th wheel yet I have not got the feel for it so I will let you know later.

Having said this probably Big Bertha may fit the bill lol

Cash Flow....

If I'd've thought in that vein I'd've name ours Cash Flush.

Since ours is a Camelot and, naturally, she's a lady, we had to call her Gwenevere.

After 29 years of marriage to my high school sweetheart and two kiddies later. My wife decided to see what she "had missed" I got the truck and fiver. The day after the divorce and I pulled out of the driveway for the last time, I stopped at an Ace Hardware store, and bought a stencil set.

I went out in the parking lot and put the name of my fiver , in big letters across the front of it .

"THE SHAFT" named after the Jerry Reed song.

Now Im on my second fiver, and I have made arrangements to put the following name on my new to me fiver...............

'THE SHAFT, second tunnel" !!!!
