I've been asked via PM by several people how I came up with the name for my 5er. Those that know Star Trek are already in the know, for the rest... as posted on the EscapeForum.

As is said, there are Ford people and there are Chevy people.

There's also Star Trek people and Star Wars people.

I've been a Trekkie of sorts since the campy original series debuted in 1966. To seek out new life... to boldly go (where I've never gone before)....

One of my favorite series was Star Trek: The Next Generation (TNG). On board the starship NCC-1701-D was an area where the crew went to relax. That lounge and recreation area was on deck 10, section 1, the forward section.

Do you see where I'm going with this?

The name of that facility and what I'm going to call my beautiful trailer is: TEN FORWARD

Ten Forward is the hub of the ship's social activity. Everyone on board comes here." - Jean-Luc Picard (TNG: "The Offspring")

Children are not usually allowed in Ten Forward unless accompanied by an adult. (TNG: "Imaginary Friend")

In case of low-power or emergency situations, Ten Forward is a designated emergency environmental support shelter. (TNG: "Night Terrors," "Disaster")

And my personal favorite account: Thomas Riker's description of Ten Forward in a romantic clue to ship's counselor Deanna Troi was "What the future holds, no one can know, but forward we look and forward we go." (TNG: "Second Chances")

I never thought I'd have an opportunity to purchase the tenth of any Escape build. Maybe the 110th, but not the 10th... especially a 5th wheel. I am willing to wait however long it takes to own the 10th new Escape 5th wheel off the line.

This is FATE and is partially defined as:

1 - A power that is believed to control what happens in the future

2 - The things that will happen to a person or thing : the future that someone or something will have

3 - The will or principle or determining cause by which things in general are believed to come to be as they are or events to happen as they do : destiny

As Paul Havey would say... Now you know the rest of the story.

Besides, Ten Forward is also the name of a coffee shop in Los Angeles.

When We Get Around To It we're going to get the Appropriate Decals for our 16-footer and it'll be a shuttlecraft. STNG, flavour. We're trying to think which one, though...

This is so much fun, thanks to all for the ideas, from lighted signs to a saber!

But in that flavor, Gary have you check out Memory Alpha for a name? I vote for Galileo, find names here: Shuttlecraft - Memory Alpha, the Star Trek Wiki

Galileo here: Galileo type shuttlecraft - Memory Alpha, the Star Trek Wiki

SWEET!

Wifey vetoed my thought: ComRubRafPac (Commander Rubber Raft Fleet Pacific) and we settled on Felicity:fe·lic·i·ty (from dictionary.com)

1. the state of being happy, especially in a high degree; bliss
2. an instance of this.
3. a source of happiness.

Sounded like a better fit to me, too.

Whatever works for you Charlie.. and Catherine. I expect most folks talk about their all molded towables as "the trailer." WORKS FOR ME, if it works for them...

A couple more days and more pics of TEN FORWARD
