At home, I call it "The Bus"
At the DMV, I call it the "Motorhome"

My plans are to have "Highway Yacht" lettered across the top of rear cap.

We named our bus "Heavy Metal" based on the 1981 motion picture of the same name.  The theme song for the movie is "Takin' a Ride" by Don Felder.

Depewtee,
  LOVE IT!!!!! The movie AND the song!!!! I may just have to see if I can find that movie and watch it again. (I guess that might show my age a little.  Roll Eyes LOL)  I hope you don't mind if I commandeer that name??  Roll Eyes  It really fits me and the bus. Plus,I haven't yet named her yet either. I also liked "Chip" and "Buffy" but those are also taken.

Out to find a movie!!

  Living here in the Indianapolis area, my bus over the entrance has the number 500. Must have been the number it had at

  Trailways in Vancover, BC.  With that said (Indianapolis 500) we call Her/Him  O'LE 500.

Many years ago I saw a 4104 in an RV park with 'Tin Cup' in the headliner. I thought that was pretty neat at the time. We still call ours 'Bus' at home, and 'Motor Coach' at DMV, Will
