We call ours the "Dody-dome". That's how our daughter called it when she was 18 months old. We just kept on calling it that ever since. She's now 8.

Our's is called "ROAD RUNNER", you know, BEEP, BEEP! This is our third Pleasure-Way, and our first and second one had a tire on the rear door and on it was a vinyl cover with a picture of the road runner, and underneath it were the words, beep, beep. I can't tell you how many times people would go past us and beep. Harold would say, "Why are they beeping at us?" I'd say," ugh, there's a beep beep on the back."

Ours is referred to as "The Little Hilton". After years of tent camping, this is serious luxury!

We haven't come up with any cute name for our van, so I guess we still call it "The Van" too. It's enough that the "Pleasure-Way" gets a few laughs and innuendo snickers from our non-B friends.

It's the sixth incarnation of "The Little House on the Highway (tm)." Our RVing started with a Casita, hence the "little house."

You are in good company with that name. The late Zeno Klinker, a comedy writer for Edgar Bergan, called his pickup camper "The Highway Hilton."

"HAL the Van".
Why HAL? Well since my name is Dave.....

Dave Bowman: Open the pod bay doors, HAL.
HAL: I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.

We started out with Artimis. It comes from RT (Roadtrek), pronounced Artie. Of course Artie is short for Artimis.

This only lasted about a week. Then we named it The Cabin..

Sometimes it is The Cabin in the Woods, or The Cabin at the Beach, .....Mountains, .....Lake, .... etc.

The Cabin

We just call ours "The Plezure Way", pronounced as spelled, as in 'If the van's a rockin' don't come knockin'. It's a 1995 Pleasureway MPL.
