That may involve your favorite word, planning to attend a rally as Dave attends a lot of them.

I wanted a name symbolic of the area we're from, as well as perhaps being a conversation starter,thus our 19 happily carries the moniker of Fog Lark. It is the name given by the old time loggers to the now endangered (in CA) marbled murrelet, a sea bird that nests in the old growth coastal redwoods. After feeding in the ocean in the early morning hours, the murrelets would fly up the coastal streams through the fog to their nests, singing to their young.

Likewise, the loyal Nissan Frontier TV is now known as Sancho Panza, Don Quixote's faithful, and rather smarter, servant and traveling companion.

Ours is called Canadian Bambi . We thought before we bought our Escape we wanted the Airstream Bambi . After being on their forum and really checking out their trailers , sure glad we didn’t go in that direction ! Pat

My wife and I named our 2019 E21 Mystical Medicine.
We always see something Mystical and beautiful on our trips and camping is good Medicine for the soul.

Or you could try "21x2", for a more obscure Escape - Hitchiker's reference.

It takes time to get a name if you ask me. You need to own and use the trailer and just let a name come to you that fits it's personality or something that happens during use that you find funny. Our old 96' Honda Civic with 360,000mi is called "Nellie". After an old work horse that keeps on plugging along. Our Rav4 with the V6 engine is super sensitive on the throttle when starting from a stop. It will jump out from under you if you hit the gas just a little too much. Took me 6yrs with no name until I decided it would be called "Peppy". It just fits. Don't have a name for our 17B yet but we've only owned it for about 5 months now.

You are correct, there are certain names that just fit.
Though not for campers here are Several of my favorites and I might add that I Have actually seen and sometimes patronized these establishments
Thistle Dew Cafe
Mountain View motel Bozeman, Montana ( third night I was married)
Duck Inn ( a tavern from my youth owned by George Priborsky)
Dew Drop Inn (Vinton Iowa at one time)

That sign hangs at the Sutliff Tavern. You can either drive there about 10 miles south of Lisbon Iowa or boat up to the dock on the Cedar River and walk up the bank. The ceiling is plastered about three thick with autographed dollar bills, the walls are mostly bad taxidermy and news paper pictures of large flathead catfish. It smells like fish in there and it’s not coming from the kitchen. You must have good soles on your shoes or the floor will pull them off. Crowd is from 16 to 92 and average 15 teeth and everybody has a chainsaw scar.

She’s a Gem. The flood in 2008 went into the building.
The old Sutliff bridge over the Cedar River was closed to vehicles and is now a pedestrian bridge. There’s a new bridge just upriver. It’s a nice area and is only about
15 miles from the Palisades Kepler State Park on Highway 30. A nice
Park with good camping but a small campground.

Hi Jim
Sutliff is south of Lisbon Iowa about 10 miles. US 30 goes through Lisbon and there’s a blacktop that runs south down to the winery and then you come to the Tavern and the Historic Bridge. It is 80 miles from Thompson causeway where we camped last fall.
Not much going on between the two. You need to go up to Poopy’s at Savanna for local color if you’re ever back at Thompson. They have a website.
