How To Name Your RV

Have you named your RV yet?

If you haven't, do you know that you're in a minority?  Over 50% of RVers say they've named their RV. It brings some great pride to ride around in their nicknamed home on wheels. But it also has some practical value as well. It might not be very efficient for conversation to say "let's head back to the New Horizons M453S" compared to saying "let's head back to Betty".

If you're having a tough time coming up with names here's a list of ideas you may want to keep in mind. Try brainstorming by writing down every name that comes to mind for five minutes and then sifting through the results to narrow it down to the lucky winner.


You might have a personal connection to your travels that you want to utilize with your RV name. Maybe you are glampers, or weekend warriors.  Maybe you use it for biking trips etc. If something touches your heart with the reason you travel it might be a great idea to use it for a name.

Puns can be Fun

I've heard someone call their RV the "Cramalot Inn".  I know another guy who named his 5th wheel "Charm".  As in... 3rd time's a charm!  Puns can be a great way to keep light humor of your RV name.


I once saw poodle named "Brutis", a Pomeranian named "Bear", and a bald guys nickname was "Hairy". Sometimes opposites are great for RVs because they could be quirky and make people laugh.  i.e. your 24' travel trailer might be named "Beast"


Consider the Make/Model

This might be a good idea to name your RV after. Maybe you've been brand loyal for years or you think the name is catchy. Some RVs are made with great outdoorsy names. We knew someone who had a Class C Sunseeker that named their RV the "Sun Seeker". Maybe you're a "Road Warrior".  Perhaps you named your 5th wheel "Winslow" after one of your favorite places to travel through.
