Why Do People Name RVs?

Recreational vehicles are inanimate objects, but, because they are used on exciting road trips while having fun experiences, they can become part of the family.

Cute camper names are a great way to celebrate all of the memories you create while using your camper trailer.

The flip side is also true, when the vehicle has lots of problems, the RV’s name can be derogatory, like “Money Pit”.

In addition to creating a great name, lots of RV owners have a custom vinyl decal made they apply to their camper.


Names Of Our Trailers

My husband and I have had many trailers and we’ve given each one a unique name.

The Baby Doll: Baby doll is the nickname we call each other, so, why not call our first camper by the same name. Ha ha.

The Bantam: We had zero creativity when we called our hybrid camper trailer by the RV manufacturers name! What were we thinking?

The Mansion: When we moved from one hybrid to an even bigger one, we felt like we moved into a mansion, hence the name.

Weezie: We were done with hybrid tent campers after we woke up in the middle of the night with wet beds, the thunderstorm was a big one and the rain penetrated the canvas walls. We purchased a travel trailer with a slide out and my sister said we were “movin’ on up” just like the Jeffersons did in the tv sitcom. That’s how Weezie got her name.

Lucille: After my husband retired we needed more space to pack more gear for longer trips. Traveling greater distances and living in a camper most of the summer caused us to move out of lightweight travel trailers. We considered new RV types: fifth wheels, a, b and class c motorhomes, we ended up purchasing a 5th wheel. It was a big step into a much larger rig. Our challenges reminded us of “The Long, Long Trailer” movie with Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz so our new-to-us trailer was named Lucille.
