Hi, our 13ft Scamp was named "Travelling Egg". Upon its sale, within the next week or so, we will transfer the name and license plate with that name to the new Escape on order.

Interesting side note on license plates. Here in Mich. if you can find a license plate more than 20 years old and the vehicle or trailer is more than 20 years old you can get the "antique" plate registered to the vehicle.

So I found and purchased a 1976 Bi-Centennial plate with the 77 sticker for my 1977 Scamp. I have to send in color picture of plate and paper work to sec. of state but eventually will have a permanent 1977 trailer plate for the 1977 Scamp.

We actually considered getting plate from year of graduation from high school but apparently horse and buggies didn't usually have plates in Mich.

Roger, in California we don't have that set up, that I am aware of. My soon to be sold 05 Scamp 13 has had TRVL EGG plates from day one. Now that we have an Escape on order ( for retirement Canada and US coast to coast travel), we are transferring the plate over as its a lot longer but still an egg.

2004 Trillium Outback named "Ruby Tuesday"

85 year old couple that I purchased it from had a beautiful standard bred black Poodle named Ruby who was very interested in our comings and goings.

And we came and went a few times since it was a long weekend (holiday) here and I wasn't able to transfer the ownership until Tuesday. It was an antsy few days wanting to get her home here after making a deposit on the Friday prior.

Besides, those of you 'of an age' will remember who/what "Ruby Tuesday" was!

Had a decal made with her name that was applied to a brand new spare tire cover which was mounted on the back of the trailer. Unfortunately near the end of an 8,000 mile journey to the Arctic Circle and beyond, on the worst washboard road I've ever been on, the tire mount broke off, chain, lock and all must have gone spinning off into the bushes somewhere. Too dusty to see anything out the rear mirrors of the truck to notice anything.

So now I'm thinking it might be the opportunity to re-name her. Since I have a love affair with the family 'Corvid" I might just call her "Raven Lunatic". To be decided.

Fun thread to read!

Great name!

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:



And now, I can look out my home-office window and there she is in the side yard: Close By.

Sallee--good one!

I love hearing all the trailer names. It really personifies these eggs.

You know, psychologists ("them, somewhere") say that if you put a bandanna or ruff on a dog, people feel more warmly toward it than one with just a collar or worse, naked.

I think naming these trailers helps us all feel even more warmly toward them than we do otherwise--and that's pretty warm!
