    Hi, I've had my motorhome a few weeks now and have noticed that you all name them, I'm not sure what to call mine.
    At first I thought it was a 'He' as it puffs up hills , farts about in the mornings and drinks quite a bit but didn't give me any trouble.
    But now I think it's a 'She' cos I keep spending money on her, new this, new that, and this week a new TV!

    What have you called yours and why?:Smile:

    Mine is neither. I call it a name that can't be repeated in polite company. It's a right shed:Doh:

    LHotRy

    Ours is called LHotRy, which comes from Little House on the Runway. One of the first trips was to Switzerland to swap over some aircraft parts. The avatar picture is wild camping beside the airfield.

    Prolly why I think of ours as Bessie then, so you aren't alone!

    But there again my car is always Betsy anyway. I mean successive ones. My BiL always called his car Betsy which must have made some sort of impression I spose.....

    Pete doesn't call his vehicles anything but as far as I'm concerned he still owns Wanda (the Honda) and Trixibelle (the Trophy) (without the Fifi)

    I call mine "the motorhome" or "the camper" because that's what it is.
