    I know a lot of us have "named" our motorhomes, Helga, Vanessa, Jemima and so on - but what about the last name???? Martin put the non-start number into his phone as "Jemima V" - so what does the "V" stand for?

    Van is a bit boring
    van Brumm Brumm a bit better :)

    We have just replaced our van. Our previous can was a Bessacar and he was called Buster... the name really suited him.

    We now have Kontiki and are struggling for names. I currently refer to him as The Van with No Name.

    Any suggestions gratefully received!!

    Surely, should be Thor! As in Heyerdahl - late leader of the Kon-Tiki expedition!

    Have a name for ours, all the same name, called the van!
    Although the name it could be called now would be acne as it's AKN, don't think I will somehow!
