Separate names with a comma.

I named her "Therapy".
Named our Aliner "Chuck". Don't know why, just kinda fit.
Yes, they do come up with some "amazing" names. When our DD was about 3 she told us she had an imaginary friend. His name was "Chax". Got some interesting descriptions from her as to how many arms, legs, etc Chax has. The name has come up a few times since, but not that often. I may ask her what she wants to call it soon as she's approaching 5 now, but I doubt she'll say anything other than "the camper".
The kids got together and came up with the name "The Banana Whammy" for our 1972 Yellow Cox Cadet. Our Green 77 VW Westfalia tow vehicle (also named by the children) "The Rusty Pickle". Well to make a long story short...I ordered a custom graphic for the camper. It's a picture of a banana with THE BANANA WHAMMY! in big bold print. I had no idea what a banana whammy was...until I used Urban Dictionary. But it's too late now. Our family is pretty dedicated to the names given.
Mine is named Penny. It was my mother's name. She's been gone 10 years. Some of my fondest memories as a kid were camping in our old PUP, "Nimmie". So, now I get to take mom camping with me Mr. Nuocmam calls it our "Money Pit"
Absolutely not true You can name whatever you want.. .. My PUPs name is Old Betsy, because well, she's old haha Would've named her Hurricane (since my name is Katrina), but my Jeep claimed that name
There was a hurricane named Betsy that hit the coast in 1965.
Omg I didn't know that!! Yup, I'm cursed! Lol
On the bright side, like most major hurricanes, she was a strong force to be reckoned with and didn't let anything stand in her way.
Hahaha that's a positive way to look at it! I love it!
When I was younger I wanted a popup camper, but after I was old, I decided a travel trailer would be nice, but never had the money.
After two hurricanes were in the gulf last year, I said if I had a popup camper, I could hook up and leave if I wanted to, so that was when I started looking. I've never left for a hurricane, but it would be nice to have that option.
We named our 2000 Coleman Niagara "Phyllis", because that seemed like big, old, and reliable lady name Also, we are fans of "The Office"!
We've called our pup Twinkle because she is a STARcraft STARlite....twinkle twinkle little star.
Pondering "Lil Deb", after my wife Debra or perhaps DD after Dan/Deb.
We haven't named ours yet, but "LEMON" seems to be a good fit.
@Orchid Sharp Shootin' Grandma
Every time I see your ??, don't know what it's called, but I think of my mama and my nephew. When he was in the army they asked him where he learned to shoot and he told them "my grandma." We called her Annie Oakley when we were kids because she could shoot a snakes head off. Our house was up a hill and one time there was a snake downhill and we ran inside and told her, so she raised the window in the living room and with her 22 she shot its head off.
I found out in my 30's that I'm a naturally good shot. Prior to that had never shot a firearm.
When I joined this site, I was still into shooting competitions. I can still shoot the head off a tiny coral snake at a good distance, but snakes are the extent of my shooting now. Too busy with grandchildren.
I've tried for years to change that sentence to something else in my profile, but it won't change.
I can't do anything in mine, not even a text link.
Lol, I can't believe you competed, that's great. I could shoot a 22 when I was a kid, but I have a problem with guns because of the loud noise right at my ear. I tried dove hunting, but gave it up and just went with my uncle so I could go 'fetch' his birds.
My great-nephew got a bow and arrow set, he's 9. I was there one day and him ad my other nieces boyfriend were shooting targets and he told me to try. I haven't picked up a bow since I was around 12 years old - over 50 years. I took aim and hit the bulls eye and quit while I was ahead.
