Name that Trill

Todays discussion on "facilities" gave me an idea for finally naming our Trillium 4500. Carol Ann was not amused with my thoughts of naming it The Porta-Bunky. Help me out here folks with your suggestions.

To get your creative juices flowing you might want to look at the Fiberglass RV gallery and see what others have named theirs.

Name that Trill? Do you mean the host or the symbiont?

Ha ha, a Star Trek joke! Geek! (from a fellow member).

Is the trailer the "host"?

Roy, naming a trailer is like naming a kid. Not really something you can outsource, but your wife should probably be consulted.
Names that spring to mind:
Creamy Freedom
Resin Resort
Towed
Tent on Wheels
Tailgater
Plan B

It would have been easier if we had taken the U-haul. With it's distinctive center ridge matching our dogs I thought of Roll-desian Ridgeback.

I'm liking "Plan B" Dave, it sounds better than BOW for Bunky On Wheels. It is our second trailer, upsized for the dogs.

Tyler, she's a stock 4500 single blue stripe. Jon Vermilye too this picture at the Niagara meet in 2011.

Never thought of that Gary, might be an angle to work from.

Literature says Fromme 9201F789, from St. Laurent, QC. I'll get Carol Ann to check tonight. She's checking on the trailer in storage. Both to confirm what is there for Ontario bolerama this weekend and to make sure we don't have much damage from the 5" or 296 mm of rain here yesterday.

Does your Boler have a name, and if so, what is it? That might give us a clue as to your tastes in that department.

I think it was aftermarket Dave.

Francesca, We named the boler American the Eggstream. Partly from the extreme condition it was in when we bought it and visions of an interior Airstream like finish when restored.

The almost good news is we had much more water in the house than the trailers with yesterdays storm. Buckets vs paper towel. Won't know the bad news till we pull the cupboards and plaster.

Currently, I call mine "sow's ear"

Hopefully, after I get the fix-ups done, I can change the name to something like "Kat Sass"

I like that as well Jim,
I would have to change my tow vehicle for that one though. Does Chevy still make the Blazer?
I still like my Tonka Toy, 5 more years and it will be an "antique" and no more e-tests. Steve L. does not think too much of my little Ranger. I remember him saying something about they all should have come off the line painted Mary Kay Pink since they aren't a real truck.

Maybe I need to up the ante and offer a prize or something ...

Cool How we named ours

Casita was taken.

So. Something to do with eggs.

Omelette is an egg dish

Homelet is a little home.

Our last name begins with H.

So Homelet it is.

A year has passed without a suitable name, then a few things have happened in the last week.

A driverless car rolled across the street clipping a hydro pole just before landing into the Trillium. Pictures posted here: http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f...tml#post469464

Then there was a lightning strike at bolerama which came close, even closer to another Trillium, blew out a row of the electrical sites, later the transformer went up in smoke taking out a good chunk of the electrical sites.

We are thinking, "Lucky" or "Lucky Strike" ... thoughts or suggestions?
We could wordsmith the latter substituting Strider for Strike from Tolkein and this members signature line Fiberglass RV - View Profile: 2yax2go
"Not all those who wander are lost." (J.R.R. Tolkein from Lord of the Rings..."Strider's Poem")

That would make it the "Lucky Strider" - gotta bounce that one off Carol Ann first.

Background on Strider: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aragorn
