And here I thought California Scab was what I got when I skinned my knee on some rocks in Scotts Valley.

The only thing I know about Scabs are those that cross picket lines...

My wife bought a new car a couple of years ago, a Ford Focus ST, twin turbo, 250+ HP. You can link your phone to it but it had to have a system name. So she named it "Bob" after her dad who loved sports cars. So for her birthday, I got her a license plate frame that just says "Bob" on it so her car is "Bob"

Fast forward to now. We have been struggling to come up with a name for our recently acquired Escape 19 and could not decide on anything. I would throw out a few, some just for laughs, but nothing stuck.

So on my birthday (yesterday), I get a license plate frame from her with "Escape Trailer" on the top and "Rufus" on the bottom. So our trailer is now named "Rufus" after a Boston Terrier that I had 20 years ago.

I'm leaning toward: "Oh, The Places You'll Go!". Any Dr. Seuss fans in the house? Kinda wordy, but my kids will love it!

We will be signing our final build sheet later today for 'Our Roam Home'. We may have set a new record for the number of changes to the build sheet, but feel good with our decisions now. The months of planning are finished, now the months of waiting and anticipating.

George and Jodi, I hear ya. We made about 20 changes to the build sheet and wound up with about 47 options added. But in the end, we think we got it just right. Congrats on the next step.

We'll be signing ours today, as well--I think Just one more ? and addition. Crystal has been great to work with! It's good to feel good about the decisions, no matter how many changes are made, right? We will all be so pleased with the trailers and ETI wants it that way.

So, together we'll join the ranks of "brothers and sisters in waiting". May the time pass well~ Happy Trails! Peace~

You may still be able to make a last minute change, during construction, as long as ETI says it can be done.

Nice to know--just trying to avoid the extra $. Hopefully, today's choices will be it. This trailer is already so much more than the one we had and more then we could have wished for. We are grateful and happy:^)

Custom vinyl shops are everywhere if you need to renew or replace graphics. Most shops will work with you to keep you happy.

Yup, lot's of creative names. We still haven't decided how we're supposed to spell our trailer name. Is it the trailer or The Trailer?

Hi Ron
If it is a trailer that you are proud of, that comes through in difficult situations, is easy on the eyes and promises to do its best every time out , then it
Is THE TRAILER. Just like the fine American Institution of Higher Education and Alma Mater of three members of our family THE OHIO STATE UNiVERSITY in Columbus Ohio.

Ha! We named ours "Zen Purple". It has purple graphics, and purple is my favorite color.

I had initially thought about naming it "Purple Haze", but we were concerned about the drug overtones. For me, it was more about naming it after one of my favorite and most effective dry fly patterns (a fly fishing thing)...

In any event, Zen Purple stuck. So if you see a 19 tooling down the road with this name on the back, you'll know who it is!

Since I'm on my 4th Escape and 2nd E21 I was going to name it the french DeJa Vue but Mr. Ryan suggested a play on words like his infamous "Past Tents" and use DeJa View, so there it is!

I love how they combined the threads. Nice choice.


If you can't go to Purdue University, then consider Ohio State, just realize they go around using upper case all the time.

Names

We only learned one chant as kids growing up in Iowa on football Saturdays. It
Was ďP.U. PurdueĒ it was a kinder more gentle time. I have a lot of fun with the over zealous sports fans. Iíve actually seen people get mad at a game. personally Iím a lover not a fighter thatís my wife Rita and my Daughter Kelly at the Rose bowl last season. I planted three Purple Prince flowering crabs in our front yard in honor of Prince and Purple Rain.
