    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:
