Wich name did you give to your rig?

Mine is called "Bertha"

On one side for the "B" in the grille and for the Big Bertha (the german cannon) for the long distances I took on it :)

I call mine ROCKY the Flying Squirrel, and I had a license plate frame made that says exactly that.

 "The Ugly Truckling" is my rusty, lowered one and "ROCKY II" is my lifted hunting truck.

My wife and I were absolutely creative.  Our '92 SE is named 'Rocky'.  Just like the Dodge Cummins is 'Dodge', the truck camper is 'Camper' and our new car is 'Honda'.

Actually, I think I'm going with Reddy, but I am having a former student who's a comic book artist trying to come up with an angry Rocky the Flying Squirrel for it. If he can do it and put hiking sneaks on his paws, I think we have a winner

Plenty of Rocky the Flying Squirrel cartoons on the interweb - do some searches.

In my last REAL job, I spent endless hours scouring the ether for technical information and got fairly good at it.

utherjorge, you could base the cartoon/drawing on your actual frankenrocky :13:  If your student comes up with a good one or two need to share with Gonzo, not only is he a really good guy and Navy Veteran he has always come through in a pinch when I needed a photo of whatever part of his Rocky I needed.  We both use ours in similar ways, towing behind our RVs.

Yep, ROCKY the Flying Squirrel has been doing yeoman's duty.  Last year we went to Jellystone NP and it was great.  Towed the ROCKY for 1250 miles. This year I'm thinking of doing the Grand Canyon North Rim and Monument Valley.  We'll see...
