Hi: All... Well it's starting to sink in that the big white hump in the driveway isn't a snowdrift. It was an easy tow home 2hrs. down the freeway and backing in the laneway in the dark seemed daunting at first but I made it, and if I can do it anyone can!!! It cost an arm and a leg and I had to give up my rights to "Our First born Child" but we will be camping in style though we will have to eat beans more often...thank goodness for extra ventilation!!! The next thing will be a name for "Her". Any ideas???

Congrats!....now for name ideas, since you said your going to be eating beans my vote is for these three depending on your favorite beans, in no particular order...

Rosarita...after the refried beans
Nellie or Nelly........ a shortened version of a white cannilli bean
Libby........brand of wax cut beans

I vote for Nellie as it seems to have more variety...for example when your going to fast down the road..Whooaa Nellie

When you go about town you can say your out will Nell, where as Rosarita shortened you would be saying I'm out with Rosy doesn't quite sound as good.

The origin og the name Nellie is English and means Light (which fiberglass trailers are) and happens to be 145th on the list of popular names.

Enjoy ! Let us know what you name her! Brandy

Cool

Alf S,
Congratulations!!! I just hope you'll be able to put a few dribbles of gas in your tug so you can show her off!
As Donna is fond of saying---pictures, pictures, pictures. We're turning blue in the face because we're holding our collective breaths.

Expanding on what you've already called her, how about "Summer Snowdrift"?

Now the fun begins as you contemplate how to personalize her with your own touches!
Exciting, excruciating anticipation is becoming reality, or is it an "Escape" from reality?

Enjoy the "trip",
Kurt & Ann K.

Hi: All and thanks for the good wishes. I am to say that I can take the pic's but "SHE" got dirty in the rain on the way home and you wouldn't want dirty pic's posted here!!! The opportunity to own this 11 month old beauty just happened and I felt it too good to pass up. I was thinking of adding "Our ESCAPE Hatch" to the spare cover.
Thanks for the insight and name choices... I'm still thinking.

Congrats on your new purchase Alf

That 2 hour drive to get her was just a drop in the tank....you need to start plannin that trip out to the west coast for a visit!!

Just for name's sake, the reason we named the trailers 'Escape' is because that's what we do in them! Escape Hatch sounds fitting to me!

Alf, that is truly awesome! I know you'll have boatloads (or is that trailer loads?) of fun with it.
