Yeah, and when someone says My Way, I still think Sinatra....

Wow, interesting, did not know that!
But just thought of another possibility: My Way IS The Highway.

I agree... Name your trailer whatever you want (as long as it's not the same as mine)!

Like the name Forever Blue on the 17B I believe, maybe because I like Chris Issak's music. You could probably study his song list to come up with another, such as Yellowbird(which of course he didn't write). Then there's Two Hearts, Blue Hotel, then one of my fav's: Baby Did A Bad Bad Thing.

Always liked Chris Isaak. He did a cover of Neil Diamond's 'Solitary Man' that is one of the best covers I've EVER heard. Liked it better than the original.

Our trailer name has been used by many. Not much I can do about it though.

Yeah, "Escape 19" is becoming more common all the time Jim...

That is the model, we affectionately call it "The Trailer".

Ours is named similarly to yours. Of course, we don't capitalize the first word of "the Trailer".

Good thing for that, it will definitely help to avoid confusion.

Jim, I know your aversion to the whole trailer naming thing, but I think you should reconsider. Us chrome domes should stand up and be proud that we are unencumbered by all that high maintenance hair. Escapes are smooth and rounded too, so
Maybe "Old Baldy"?

That would be too confusing, what with both of us sporting the same name.

And my trailer is pretty bald, no antenna, no solar panels, no A/C.

It is hot, hot, hot in Calgary today. Went for a bike ride in shorts and a short sleeved shirt, and was plenty warm.

19 degrees C currently, might even get a little warmer. Previous record has been blown away by a significant margin. I really hope this is not the cause.... It's Official: 2014 Was the Hottest Year on Record
