Cackleberry was something my Dad always used to call eggs-evidently, per Mom, as a young man he worked in a egg diner & the reference always stuck with me...so here's to Dad
(I did see a Cackleberry on the Casita site-hope he won't mind)

I like it! It's different. Can't say that I remember it but I will know it now. Good choice!

"Bon Temps"

Donna and I have been searching for a name for our trailer for quite some time. Happy to say we have agreed on one. "Bon Temps" which will be flanked on either side by a Fleur de lis symbol. We are from Cajun Country and in the Cajun French dialect Bon Temps means Good Times. For us this is a very fitting name as we will be having lots of Good Times with our trailer. It is also a sign of respect for our south Louisiana heritage. Bon Temps and the Fleur de lis are both important throughout the state of Louisiana and to us personally. It is also the symbol of our favorite football team, the New Orleans Saints and to top it off Donna just loves anything with a Fleur de lis on it. We are happy campers.

I read something about that when we were trying to figure out what we wanted to name our trailer. It was one that we had considered but figured one "Who Dat" was enough and we kept looking. I think the owner who named his trailer "Who Dat" ended up selling his trailer. Wonder if the new owner kept the name. Regardless we are happy with the name and design we settled on. I figured with as much money as we spend on these trailers, they deserve a name.

If we were travel companions we could name our up coming trailer "when? "

When I was a kid growing up, Cedar Rapids Iowa
was called " The Parlor City" kept clean, inviting and always ready for visitors. Everybody "got
it". In later years some genius came up with " The city of five seasons". Made no sense, had to explain it, still not valid, and the wags used City of 5 Smells which everyone got. Choose
wisely, some citizens will burn their brain out if it's too deep.

Hi Mike & Donna,
We did not keep the "Who Dat" name for the 2015 21 we got from the original S. Louisiana owner in August. Even though Denise also has family connections to the area (including her father having gone to high school with Tom Benson, owner of the Saints), we are not professional football fans so the name and related ornamentation wasn't really appropriate. So, it's available and free for the taking if you want to reconsider.

Thanks for the update. Nice of you to take the time to post about it as someone on this forum may decide to use it. I have already sent the request to ETI for the "Bon Temps" so we will stick with it. Did you rename your trailer or just decided to be nameless?

Our camping mode is dashing from one campsite to another, so we call our fifth wheel
"Scooter".

You register your name with ETI? Sounds official.

Oooo.... I like the name "The Parlour Car" for the trailer. Maybe I will run that one by Lisa.

No this is all in fun. ETI will make a decal with your chosen name as an option if you wish. They'll even apply it to the trailer!

They are now charging? Used to be free, didn't it? If not too long.

Yes they are charging. Gave them the name I wanted and Sarah got back to me quickly that they now charge $5 CDN per letter in the name. Also get it in quickly, I didn't and they also asked for a $10 late fee as my trailer already had the trim added.

Well, I guess it makes for people looking for short names!
