    How did you decide if it's a girl or a boy van?

    Did the name just come to you?

    I've been trying to think of a name for my van but nothing seems right. It needs to stop being an it :)
     
  2. Ours has always been a she... But it was Mike4 wife Becks, that told me her name... Our van is Dakota B-e-i-g-e, some call it Magnolia.. So Beck's said her name was Maggie...

    Mines banana yellow and when I was buying it that's what we described it as and it's kind of stuck in my head.

    But it's not a name. Reckon it's a boy at least so that's a start!

    I couldn't do the nedfaux route , spent too much time thinking about it!

    I kind of like 'Bingo' after one of the banana splits but other half is less keen

  15. We were new to the scene last May, found out they mostly have names and couldnt decide what to call our late Bay.

    When we went to pick it up, a tall south african man told us quite firmly that her name was Alice, thats what she has been called from birth and it will not change, so Alice she remains !

    I am a huge Jam fan, ie the group from the late 70's. We have changed the words from Town called Malice to a 'Van called Alice'.

    The words being.......Stop apologising for the things you've never done, time is short, life moves forwards, its up to us to change, in a Van called Alice !'.........very apt for the difference in lifestyle the Camper has brought to us !
