My impression is that a lot of the toyhaulers carry graphics and names meant to evoke a "bad a##" image. As in, "let's get out there and tear up as much sand and dirt as possible, as fast as possible, 'cause I'm a bad dude..."

I think one named "Apocalypse" would sell quite well.

"Green"? I have looked closely. Means they charge more and you feel better about it because it is "green" and good for the environment. The biggest issue I saw, other than the price tag, was that the materials have not passed any kind of test of time.

Also, with names, the bad thing is that they change them all the time which means when the unit you bought is a couple of years old, nobody recognizes the name. They are all doing this now pretty much. Stickies used to have 3 levels, entry, mid and the high end and you could kind of know what you were getting but not anymore. Information disappears from their website every time they come up with something new and you can't get parts or at least the color of replacement parts you need.

We had a nice Coleman we bought new. The shop threw the "extra" parts away after replacing the roof for the 2nd time. The "extra" parts were for a hanging cupboard and clothing rod. They said they could not get the grey ones because the unit was SO old. It was 4 years old.

And, tow it with an Avalanche.

Hi: All... Does an Escape trailer towed by an Escape tug, mean you're having twice the fun?

Yep, with certain groups the Bad A$$ name is important and can usually be seen on larger trailers with a swing down back wall and a built in 50 gallon gas tank & gas pump for the quads. The, now defunk, "Rascal" trailers used to be built about 4 blocks from my house.
