    Some of you daft people are crackers, you give your motorhome a name, why, what is the point it's only a lump of metal. My question to you is what do you call your van and why.




    P.S. Mine is called Hermann, why, because it's German of coarse...how sad am I :giggler:(y)

    We don't, but the best one I've seen was;

    THE LUMP SUM

    Edit, forgot about the SKIMOBILE, saw it in France but it had a UK Reg. No.
    Driven by an older couple who weren't going skiing.

    She also has brushes so she just had to be a female :)

    A friend of mine is an actual alien! She doesn't have a belly button so is constantly teased about being hatched from an egg?
