Mine is also Past Tents like Rbryan4. We haven't run into each other--yet. I'm a retired English teacher, so it's also a bit of a pun where I'm concerned.

Hi Jack
Can’t wait to see the new 5.0 and the artwork “name”. We’ve not named ours because the names you gave them were better than I could have come up with. And the artwork too. Stay warm and dry.

My wife still calls it "the tent trailer".
The byline for little guy teardrop trailers is "I go where I am towed". Nice to see a manufacturer with a sense of humor. BTW say it like you have a stuffed up nose!

Driving across Illinois with a van full of Boy Scouts years ago we came up on a pickup pulling a horse trailer. Not needing or wanting to pass my Assistant Scoutmaster followed at a safe distance. Pretty soon the boys were all snickering and laughing. What now? I thought. Looking at the trailer a little closer I saw the bumper sticker and the two horses from the rear end. The sticker read “You are what you see”. Then I understood the humor going on in the rear seats.

"Escape Hatch" Kind of a double meaning, It was hatched in 2017, but it is also a place to go.

We named our new 21NE "Pookatoo" after our good friend "Pooka", our cute Burro we finally upgraded from. Pooka is of course Elwood P. Dowd's imaginary 6' tall white rabbit (from one of our favorite movies), and is also a play on words (Pooka-Burro...~Kukkaburra).
Doesn't have to mean anything to anyone else!

We have a 2018 GMC Canyon, satin steel metallic. For some reason we felt the name Herman suited the truck. When we got our 2019 Escape 19 Lily seemed like an appropriate name.
If you recall the old TV show the Munsters, Herman Munster was married to Lily.
When we picked up the trailer our kids put on a little surprise party for us with banners saying Herman and Lily got hitched.

My trailer name is on the back between the top lights and on the passenger side near the front.

I spent my working career as a woodsman and wanted to show a little local, that is coastal Northern California, color in naming my original trailer. Decided on Fog Lark, the old time loggers' name for the marbled murrelet. Kept the name when we acquired the E19. Almost always a conversation starter when we are travelling out of the area.

We bought our 5.0 from some local folks, last fall. They called it “Houdini”, for the Escape Artist.

This one made me laugh because I let my beard and hair get kind of long during the extended Covid work from home and my employees all started telling me that they thought I was trying to look like Kenny Rogers.

We worked up a variety of names, with many probably being too obvious and likely already in use. Then we thought up...

JoMoE ... our abbreviation for Just our Means of Escape.

Ordered it from ETI and we're now waiting to have it professionally installed.

To those who might ask the obvious ... Why don't you install it yourself? ... my response is from a life filled with experience.
To quote the great Harry Callahan in the movie Magnum Force ... "A man's got to know his limitations". I'm finally at that point of experience, knowledge and recall LOL.

Our 19 is Hacuna Matata. Everything is simple and good memory from past camping and trip with our sons.

When the title to my new trailer finally arrived the make of the trailer was misspelled to read "Escapade" rather than Escape.
Had to return the title for correction but the Escapade name is starting to stick. We may have to go with that.

Harvey is one of my favorite movies and Jimmy Stewart’s favorite role.

My sister and I are considering calling ours Willie. So we can say we are on the road again with Willie.

We decided on ‘ The Nuthatch ‘, but the above ‘Nest Egg’ is a great name or ‘Eggland’s Best’

Some that we've bantered about are Dream Escape, Escape Artist, Skylark (my former singing group), Zen Moment, Flying High, Served Well, and Escape in Style, among others.

Could you please respond with writing down your trailer name,and add other trailer names that you've seen or admired, and especially any humorous or light hearted ones?

Or, add a name that you've come up with since naming your own trailer.

Let's see what we can come up with!
Thanx!
My TV is my second white Tacoma so she is called "Blanca Secundo". I thought of something Blanca for my 17B at first. I can see the back end of my trailer from my kitchen window, I'm there several times a day washing dishes. I always admire the red maple leaf on the spare tire cover. So one day I decided to name my 2018 17B "Maple".

There you have it....
