    In the boating world most boats have names and these are shown on the vessel, has anyone thought of naming their motorhome, although I guess you would not want to be confused with a large transport company :Rofl1:

    thought about it? are you sure?

    Don't you mean has anyone not got a name for their motorhome?

    OUrs is Called Adriana, she replaced Nessie who had a wonderful number plate of NE55IE(d)

    A motorhome with no name? that would be like calling your dog DOG.:RollEyes:

    a lot of vans do, but I would not personalise it tends to detract from its value.

    We never managed to think of a decent name for the old one, but we just bought one that had already been named Amber - with the name on the back.

    We were looking for a Bessacar, so we could call it Bessie after our dog who died last November. Hope that didn not bring the mood down.. :Doh:

    Thought of naming my motorhome .... NO!

    Matilda told me her name not long after I got her and as soon as we were friends.... there was no thought about it.


    and please dont tell her she is not a Land Rover... she would get upset!
