    New owner here and we're wanting to name our new to us Pup. anyone want to share theirs? I'm just not creative that way!

    My NTM popup is a 1997 Starcraft Star Flyer. Hubs wants to name it star[something] but I'm hoping for a variety of suggestions!

    Well, hopefully you'll be taking lots of voyages, also known as treks, with your NTU camper, so how about the obvious one, Star Trekkin'? Only going forward cause you can't find reverse. [LOL][LOL][LOL]

    To clarify: this is my suggestion for the OP, since they have a Star Flyer...

    I have never named mine, It can't come if I call it so what is the use (my opinion)
    However most people do name theirs.

    First of all, Welcome to the Portal. We're glad you decided to join the group.

    We never really named ours proper, but sometimes I refer to it by different names in conversation. My youngest daughter came up with Poptimus Prime about 6-7 years ago, but since then, I have seen other ones called that. Our last name begins with 'B', so sometimes I'll call it "B....'s Bed & breakfast". I'll also call it 'The Mobile Bed & Breakfast'. In the world of Geocaching, it's called 'Bigfoot's All Inclusive Summer Resort'.

    Although mine kind of has the name the “adventurer ” I really don’t call it anything in a conversation other than pup. Although that gets confusing for others seeing as I have a couple dogs that I affectionately call pups as well.

    I'm not usually one for naming vehicles/campers. However we got our NTU PUP last fall and it kind of named itself. After bringing it home and digging in to maintenance and repair items, DH and I began referring to it as Captain Janky in honor of the PO and his repair techniques : )

    "The Finest" is taken because it is the finest 1984 on the block (or in my county)

    Ours was easy. “Flipper”. Thank you Jayco for a model name that makes a good nickname.

    How about “Twinkle”?

    I guess I need to see if anyone in my family has ideas to name our new PUP. I was thinking the "Pop-tart" but we'll see what a week of brainstorming turns up.

    He was the little kid in the TV show "Different Strokes" back in the 80's. He was pretty famous back then. Even before he died he was well well.

    The "Mistress". My DW says I spend so much time and money on her it's as if she's my mistress.
