I've only had my sweet baby for a few days but I'm toying with "Jupiter II", "SS Minnow" or flat out "Johnny Quest".

(I'm a child of the sixties. Clearly!)

I have an R-Pod and my last name is Kidd so I named it the Pirate's Pod.

Last name is Schmidt. So of course we are german and named it "Das Schmidt Haus". And it means " The Schmidt House". This fun little homebuilt will be our second home...hence the name.

Well, I had an epiphany recently and thought of what I think is a great name for mine. I am doing the entire interior in tongue & groove 5/16" thick knotty cedar and I have been gathering sticks of wood that beavers have chewed the bark off and sharpened to a crude point from a dam near my house (mostly green poplar). I am going to incorporate several unique pieces of it as well.
So the name I came up with is:

"CEDAR-BEAVER"

Maybe I've just been a dirty-minded factory worker too long, but I think it's funny! ;)

I don't ever refer to it by "name" but named by build thread http://www.tnttt.com/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=69583 "Photophobic Retreat" because a big factor in deciding to build it was that I can't stay in most hotels anymore (especially any reasonable rate roadside stops) due to the florescent lighting and this was the best way I could come up with to still be able to explore more than a couple hours drive away from home at a time.

Our trailer is named "Abeona"

Abeona is the Roman goddess of journeys which seemed fitting. Normally I use greek gods/goddesses for my naming scheme (my car is Andromeda, my home automation system is Hestia, my computer server is Hermes, etc) but the similar greek god is Hermes who's name is already taken in my naming scheme, and our trailer is very much a "she" not a "he" anyway.

Actually, my wife named her...

Long story short: Retired end of 2019 and planned a push effort to have the tear ready for a cross-country trip this summer. Then COVID-19 which meant 1. A trip across multiple states seemed out of the question for this summer, and B. Taking time to finish the tear seemed like a good way to alleviate boredom while avoiding outings among our fellow germ infested citizens. :frightened:

PS--Shelly just mentioned a key point is that we actually live in a cabin

been in quarantine so long I'd forgotten some people don't!

Because I know I've bit off more than I can chew and overestimated my ability, but I'm going to bumble my way through the brick walls, anyway.
If life ever let's me get back to it, that is. Couldn't buy steel for 4 months. Now I can't get plywood. Oh, well. Plenty of time to work on design refinement.

We are seriously considering the name "Rona" or "Rona Therapy". I might not have gotten the build project off the ground if it wasn't for all the spare time presented by corona virus. We'll see.

We named ours Bilbo. When we got our car a few years ago, we immediately named it Gandalf because it was old, grey, and had travelled hundreds of thousands of miles. So when we got a little, wee trailer that was going to be pulled around by Gandalf on adventures, it obviously had to be named Bilbo.

We're also nerds :SG
