Not free on our build sheet. Our first quote for "Hardley" was $30.00. Then we decided to pick a more Harley like font and it became a "custom graphic" for $50.00.

What's in a name

Everyone has such great ideas for names! I love all the creativity how the names reflect who they are. My daughter and her wife live in the Bay Area, Oakland, and just had a baby boy 7 months ago. Chicago is far away and we so much want to be a part of their lives. Our 21 trailer is going to be named "Hotel California" because that is one major thing that it is going to be to us. Along as a way to make new friends, see the country and enjoy nature. Come August, we'll be living it up at the "Hotel California" Bring on the pink champagne on ice!

I like that name alot. Not to mention, my favorite song. Someone had the good fortune to have a recorder running while Don Felder and Joe Walsh did a little magic.

While I don't have an escape, I once owned a Perris Pacer
And stole the name from someone a lot clever than me
The Perris Hilton
I use to love telling people I was sleep with her
But that's another story

When my wife and I made the decision to order a 5.0TA, she said we needed a binder to keep everything related to the trailer in one place. She goes into our home office in search of a binder, emerging with one that had the word "DREAM" across the front. When we were thinking of a name for our trailer, we settled on "Dream Maker".

Personally, I kinda liked "Lazy Daze." Other names we considered were "Tiny Dancer", "Rolling Stone" and "Free Bird".

Tammy, of ETI, asked what font we wanted to use for our trailer name. Nylene wants a script font. Has anyone used a script or cursive font? A pic would be appreciated so we can see what it looks like. Is there a web site where we could find fonts used by the ETI graphics vendor?

I don't know who the graphic vendor is but unless something has changed, the basic font used by ETI is

Other common fonts are possible. Our trailer will be named after the ship Serenity, from the short-lived series Firefly. Fortunately, the series producers used a commonly available font for their logo.

If you have not seen Firefly, get thee to netflix, go. You'll thank me.

No, actually, no one has that I have heard even though that would seem to be a good obvious choice.

There is a brand of RV (Class C motorhomes) called Lazy Daze. It doesn't really matter (you can use whatever name you want), but it could be confusing, or an amusing conversation starter... "Does Lazy Daze make trailers now?"

We already have that problem with Escapes as there is the American trailer with that name, not to mention that there is the Escapees organization with no connection to the trailers.
