We call our Trillium Olive. The shape , of course, and because the center band is painted olive green

Being monolingual, I always thought that if I were to buy a Casita, I would remove the graphics and replace them with ones which read..."Little House".

Or better yet... How about "Cascaron", "CasaGallina", or even "Casahuevo"

Mentally, I don't even think of my Escape 5.0TA as being THAT... or even a trailer or camper. I automatically think:

Little egg campers just cry out for names. There are a lot of clever and appropriate names that people have used here if you check the profiles and the showcase. I couldn't come up with an original name for my old Scamp 13 until recently. As I was mounting my 3rd solar panel on the roof, I couldn't help but think of the Mars Rovers with their panels deployed. So...she's got a name: Opportunity (earthbound). I think it fits.

You inspired me. When I put solar panels on mine, I'll call it Curiosity. We also explore this world - I mean this continent.

We never named our inanimate objects, it easier to part with them when they crap out. Lot of cars we drove until the end of their lives.

I've never been one to name objects. But with two daughters, I guess a name was inevitable, and Scampy stuck. It started as "the Scamp," and then "the Scampy," but when it became just plain "Scampy," as in, "When are we going camping with Scampy again?" I knew our trailer had a name.

Thumbs up Scamp

My 13 foot 1979 Scamp is simply known as Sis. Once I finish painting the exterior, I intend to redesign the vinyl Scamp sticker to say Sis.

After I got married and left college, my dad gave me a land yacht- a big heavy brown Fury 1. The name was inevitable- I named him Nick Fury (after Nick Fury and His Howling Commandos/Nick Fury Agent of SHIELD)
My ex-husband then decided we needed to trade that in on a sporty looking car. I refused to cosign for a Fiat, so we get a blue Chevelle, named Blue Max. No better mileage than old Nick Fury, and it ate a quart of oil every week.
After that died, and I was a single mom having some problems getting to my nursing school's external labs using the D.C. public transportation, my mother gave a Toyota station wagon- little bigger than a matchbox, in those days. She had a big red car, and I was reading DD chapters every night from a Jim Kjelgard dog book named Big Red, so I named mine Little Red.
The car I bought myself after moving to Florida was a cream colored Toyota I named Sandy...
I know that the name for my Snoozy will come to me, just as all my other vehicle names did..

I named my Burro after a literary donkey who tagged along on questionable adventures - Sancho Panza's Rucio.

I refer to my Subaru Outback as The Lady Subaru because it's such a mom car, and my husband bought a BRZ on the same day I picked up the Outback...so it's distinguished from The Man Subaru.

This thread is fun....people are so creative.

Our 16 foot Scamp was "Li'l Scamp". Dunno what the new owner will / does call her...if anything. I'll leave it to him to say if he has joined this forum.

The new to us 21 foot Escape was named "Black Jack" when CPAHarley had her/him, but we've rechristened her "The Mis-Adventure" as a sort of play on Miss Adventure and misadventure as we are often like the Griswolds on vacation in what we call our Madventures.

You take that back, you plagiarizer, you!

I have been using that name for over 30 years now on various trailers, though I might not be the first.

I view ours as a portal to adventure and relaxation. My five week a year escape from my day to day work life. Hence:

The Fixer Upper ( 13' Trillium) that my wife and I purhased 1.5 years past has been lovingly named the "Hillbilly Hotel" due in part to the much much more work that is involved in trying to fix her up than first thought.
