Have you named your RV?

We came across a poll recently where the question was “Have you named your car?” The results surprised us — more than nine out of ten of those who responded had, indeed, named their car.

One person said, “My first car was Otto the Auto. I’ve not named any others: they just don’t have the personality.”

Another replied, “Her name is Katharine because the GPS voice sounds like Katharine Hepburn.”

And yet another reader said he had named his car “The Car” and his truck “The Truck.”

And so we wondered if you have named your RV. Please answer the poll, and if you did give your RV a name, would you please leave a comment? Tell us the name you chose and how you came upon it.

Finally, the poll could take a moment to load, so hang in there for a few seconds. It will be worth the wait!

Our RV is an American Revolution. My wife shortened that to Revo, didn’t like that so much, changed the “o” to an “a,” and settled on “Reva the Revolution,” or just “Reva.”

Years ago when I was young and was ok sleeping on the ground I used to tent camp, and I had a red stakebed radio flyer wagon to tote heavy things like my cooler from the car to the tent,
Now I have a 23.5 foot red (and white) RV, and I’ve named it my Little Red Wagon. Because even in my older age I still haul my camping gear around in a red ‘wagon’. And I don’t have to sleep on the ground lol.

Our tow, with all the bells and whistles this stickshift/no options except power steering and a/c couple didn’t even know existed, was named the Carship Enterprise. My father always said there’s nothing more terrifying than a motherbear defending her cubs. I updated it to Unless it’s a Grandmotherbear in defense of her grandcubs! The trailer is named Grandmotherbear’s Den.

I named my 39′ RV “Big BS”, because it is blue and silver.

We named our 1999 Endeavor, Alice. When we decided to buy it, 1 year ago, hubby said, ‘Well, we really went down the rabbit hole on this one ‘ thus it became Alice. No name for the toad, yet.

Our 2012 Outback 230RS is named “Port-A-Party” and our 2000 F350 that pulls her is named “The Donkey”.

My ex named a car I got her, “the general”. A few years later we acquired and fixed up an old motorhome that she named “the major”. She’s gone but the general and major are still going strong

Really? You took back the car you gave her? So maybe she didn’t want that car anymore. Come on, what’s the rest of the story?

I wanted to name our trailer in honor of my parents. Daniel and Geraldine. We took the first three letter of each of their names, it just didn’t work that well! (DanGer). So no name so far.

I named my class A 30′ Ace “Carol” after my girlfriend who died of Ovarian cancer in October of 18. She helped me drive the newly purchased rig back from PA to San Diego. I would not have my RV without her.

We bought our 36′ class A in Humble, TX, so we named her “The Humble Beast”.

My Sunseeker is Sunny, obviously. 😁 She’s not a rock and roller, she’s a rock and rattled.

We call our Forester GTS the “The Rattle Trap” after our first trip across the south west. So much trim fell off that we didn’t get it back from the dealer for two months after we got back.

Not unless you consider “piece of junk” a name.
