    I'm think of naming mine "Poptential" I'm just waiting for a name to stick. I camp with big toy haulers they always say my little popper has potential.

    Ours is called THE BOTHY.
    A BOTHY is an Scottish word for an illegal drinking den and as I'm Scottish the PUP named itself, I therefore became THE BOTHYMAN. LOL.

    Our camper is so new to us, we haven't really had time to come up with a name ... But I have found myself referring to it as "the Great White Whale" because I was kind of unprepared for how huge it would look when parked in our driveway. So maybe that will end up translating to ... "Moby"? ;)

    'the Aliner' ;)

    We've only bothered to name kids and pets.

    (oops one exception, the first time we bought a 'pleasure' boat, after decades of fishing boats, my wife called it 'her turn')

    After finding out our 1 year old lab is perfectly relaxed in our pup, it’s like she’s in her crate at home, we now call ours “the family crate”

    She is my "Mistress". My DW actually gave her the name seeing I pamper her.

    TV is called "the big D". It is a 1987 Chevy 350 in mint condition. The previous owner was a car geek and took excellent care of it. The D is the first letter of the past owner's last name. The 1999 Coleman popup is called "Miss Lily". She has all that nice white canvas even after all these years. She is huge. So the big D pulls Miss Lily.

    We're taking her out on her maiden voyage (for us) this weekend and our goal is to get our 5 year old to name her...because 5 year old's give things amazing names. The last thing she named was a snail she found in the backyard, she named it Rainbow Sandy. I'll update with results. :)

    I named my pup Petit Chiot ("Little Pup" in French). My decor, the mural on the side, curtains, and the tire cover are all French themed. I even found little Eiffel Tower lights to decorate outside. My tire cover says: "L'amour sur la route" (means Love on the road). I'm in the middle of renovation now.

    My pup just got named TODAY! As I was walking through her again admiring the progress it became REALLY obvious that she's a combo of "cottage and rustic." That's when the name Rusty came to mind! This process has been really fun. I'll be the first to say that my '76 Starmaster Swinger is NOT perfect, but I like that part. She's rough around edges and that works for me. the curtain had been on our window until I swapped it for black out curtains. Our duvet is that camouflage, which will probably end up in pup.

    With the black ceiling, curtains and camouflage, "HUNTER" comes to mind.
