Our little fiberglass motorcycle trailer, a Legacy Harley or Gold Wing type, we call "Shelly" as it opens like a clam shell. We use it for hauling things beyond what'll fit in our van for local runs. It was also what Mike Rowe in Dirty Jobs called a Shetland pony who refused to turn her head toward him, "Look at me, Shelly...Lots of girls have big feet..."
We're thinking about "Peanut" for our 16-foot amerigo
, as it's a shell with two nuts in it.
Also thinking about "Masha" since from my childhood, we called these things marshmallow trailers, and that was what a funny dinosaur was called in "Caveman" as a play on "Marsha" from the Brady Bunch..."Masha, masha, masha!" was the warning the cavemen would yell out.
We've gone through a huge list of names trying to find the right one.
Also considering "Sandy," as in "Correct me if I'm wrong, Sandy," from Caddyshack.
Don't want to steal anyone else's name, so we're trying our darndest not to use, "The Trailer" for her.
While it was brown and the PO had it, they called it "Wilma." For a while I called it "Root Beer Wilma" because of the color, but the charm wore off fast with that. Anyway, she's white now, so that'd be obsolete, anyway.
