    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)

    Ours is called Vanessa. Shes a van and end of Vanessa starts my name...simples. The reg just happens to be made of mums name Jean only in a different order so seemed only right I got to choose the name mum said.
    She also has brushes so she just had to be a female :)

    My race car is called Roary, wifey's 5 is called Black Rose, work van is known as "the Duke" and our present camper is called Eclipse, my kit car is affectionately known as "the Dragon". Why? Because we aren't sad, we're happy people. :)

    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?
