What is the popular diminutive term for a motorhome?

As a narrowboater then it was - "I'm off to the boat for the weekend"
or a caravanner maybe - "We're off in thevan this weekend"

But what term describes a motorhome ?

Thanks

Peter

Ours is 'The Wheelèd Shed'.

As in:
'When lo,
A sudden glory,
And I saw the tarnished splendour of The Wheelèd Shed ascend,
And in that joy,
I forgot my tortured past'.



Really, though, it's just a wheeled shed

Motorhome names

We call ours 'The Duke' - two reasons: 1) we got off our horse (forget the milk) and 2) the last three letters of the reg plate are DKE :ROFLMAO::thumb:

As everyone has thought all our RV's have been Winebago's even though we have never had one:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

It's also quite apt now as we now have a Windsor

off in the ark.

Havent thought of a proper name but seeing as how we only started end of last year and every time we go away we travel in the rain, set up in the rain and most times whilst on site it rains the ark will do for now. :roflmto:

:Cool: We never say we are going off anywhere. But when on the road? We have always said 'we're trucking again' or singing 'On the Road Again'.

Sometimes we use a generic term, like "the rig" - but we usually refer to it by it's given name of "Slick".

starts every trip as 'the van' then goes through various stages most of which arent printable on a family forum.

if i have to change down more than two gears it becomes 'you bag of s****e' then gets worse from there.

one day it will fight back. :whatthe:
