    Not overly creative here, but it works for us:

    TV is a ruby red Ford Edge, named "Ruby"

    Pup, is Rockwood 1940, so the name that instantly came to us "Rocky"

    We name all of our vehicles, engine or not.
    The PUP is a she, and we call her "Cubbarita"(baby bear). Our former TV, a big white 4x4 conversion van, was "The Bear Den"(papa bear), but now we've passed that name on to our new travel trailer. Our other smaller white conversion van is "The Female" (mama bear).
    Our current TV, a Ford F150, is "Scout", named after one of 4 wild fox pups we once watched on our game camera. Scout was the brave adventurer of that lot, and he used to sit outside of the den waiting for mama to return from the hunt while his siblings stayed inside. One time we were outside having a campfire and seasoning a cast iron skillet by cooking bacon, and Scout trotted right up within 20 ft. of us!

    Our Pup is called Gus.
    The first pop-up we were interested in on Craigs List, the poster called it "Gus" and said he was looking for someone to carry on his adventures in Gus.
    Well, that guy flaked out on us after a few weeks, but by then, we were talking about how we couldn't wait to get OUR GUS.
    And so he is!

    TV is "Bella"
    It's a KIA Sorento, which is a town in Italy, and I bought it from a dealership in Belle Glade, Florida.
    It worked for me. :)

    Well since our camper is a Palomino Canyon cat, and has 3 big mountain lions on the front, I suggested to the DW that we name it, "The Cat House".
    She never goes along with what I want to do!!!!!! She just rolled her eyes and mumbled something about Red lights out front....I don't know, I try real hard to understand her thinking but she just doesn't want to try to understand mine.

    Do any of you other guys have this problem????

    My DW reaalllyyy likes fairies and enchanted type stuff, and it didn't work out naming one of our girls Fae, which means fairy, so I decided to name our pup "Fae" to hopefully make up for it.

    I have been thinking of a name that would stick. After a few tries, we are now mulling over calling our old 87 StarCraft Rufus. We will label him by his full name. We got this pup [PU] for a song, and I have now spent about three years repairing it to get it back to usable condition. When I got him, he had been used by a couple crack heads and was pretty rough . I spent the first summer just cleaning and trying to make the camper so the wet would stay on the outside. It still isn't done, but we did use it last summer and had a couple "educational opportunities". Like how to fix things on a budget. Anyway back to his name. We are probably going to call him "Rufus" but officially, he will be dubbed and labeled as
    "Rufus Lee King" (roof was leaking). [{}=]

    Bluesguy52,
    That's a name to be proud of!
    Especially since you're making it usable once again.
    Best wishes with the restoration.

    My PUP is called "sweet mother" as is "sweet mother I can believe she is still rolling!". LOL. I love that old girl and that is why I am refurbishing her. Having a PUP as old as I am tells me two things - 1, I am not that old and 2 if she can do it so can I.

    :)

    In case someone forgot, my pup is called RotnPuP. My TV is called RotnTrk. My Subaru is referred to as RtnMom. And they all have the license plates to prove it. [A]

    I am a huge Star Wars fan. When we bought our GMC Envoy, we started calling it "the Falcon" as in Millennium Falcon. When we got the pop up (a Jayco Eagle), we stuck with the bird theme and we call it "the Eagle".

    I wanted to name it either "Annie" or "Clarabelle" as our kids are huge Thomas the train fans... However my wife came up with the idea of "Toby"...which is spelled "Tow-by".... somewhat witty I guess lol
