Great name!

And thank you Joss Whedon for a wonderful show that died young. "Grr....Argh"

My 1972 Compact Jr (which I haven't road-tripped to pick up yet) has already been dubbed 'Trailer Swift'.

Yep, I have a weird sense of humor.

Bryan,
Cute name and take on the Coca Cola logo! LOVE the awnings! How did you make and attach them? Do you take them off when traveling?

The wheels are just re-pop 1957 Plymouth 15" caps from Summit Racing snapped in to the original Casita wheels. The 3" wide white walls are custom made extra load oversized radial tires. The awnings are removed before travel. The window box is a re-pop door push secured with suction cups with red Solo cups partially filled with expanding spray foam and heavy floral wire stuck into various size fishing bobbers. The awnings are secured to the trailer using VHB tape on PVC awning rails and furniture grade PVC pipe holds them up with suction cup ends. The accent stripes and lettering are custom vinyl.

Yes, we have a 13 footer for the 3 of us.
I'm going to be traveling in my 17'Bigfoot with my Great Dane as well. unfortunately I lost my 7yo Dane in Mar. Soon to be the new love of my life, I pick him up in mid July, not named yet....and neither is my trailer..

I have decided to call my Campster "Pup". I was joking around the other day about towing a trailer that serves as bathtub behind it and my friend mentioned that the name for trailers towed behind other trailers is a Pup. The Campster is so small that it feels like a little trailer one would tow behind another trailer and at the moment it is living next to a big cargo trailer so "Pup" it is.

Howdy—

Towing our new-to-us 2013 Casita 17 Spirit Deluxe home from its previous owners in NH, just last month, I put on a Bill Monroe CD, while nervously glancing at the mirrors of our Ford Expedition to make sure our Casita was still following.

Then the classic Monroe song came on, "Close By." I knew right away that was the trailer's name: I really needed it to be Close By:
