So you have finally purchased your campervan, RV, Motorhome or caravan! Congratulations! So what next? You may be starting to think about what campervan essentials, you need, or clever camper storage ideas to help you to organise all of your gear in a small space (packing cubes anyone!?) The next step…. before you do anything else, is to think of some great camper names of course! Time to choose a name for your home on wheels….
So why do people name their campervan, caravan or motorhome? Its kind of a right of passage isn’t it? Exactly the same as naming your first car or van! I had a VW beetle many years ago named Beatrice, and in all honesty I do tend to name my vehicles. So when we purchased our VW campervan, I spent days thinking about a cool camper van name. I very recently talked about this exact topic over on Instagram and Facebook and I had an amazing response. It seems many of you love a camper name!!!

Things to think about before naming your camper
- Now you have decided on a name for your camper, consider ordering a personalised camper sticker. There are loads of small businesses that will design a logo and also create awesome campervan name stickers.
- Don’t use offensive words or a name that could be considered offensive. Gypsy is one that springs to mind!
- Consider a name that has a meaning. Perhaps a place that you visited, or an area that you are from, or a place you met!
- Don’t forget this list is not exhaustive! Consider a name for you caravan or motorhome that is not on this list, the world is your oyster!
- Don’t feel embarrassed naming your RV or camper! Your camper is fun and will give you the best memories.
- Once you have thought of a camper name, next step is to decorate it! or give it a colour scheme. There are so many awesome ways to decorate your camper!
- What happens if you sell you camper? Does the name stay with it? Or do you transfer the name to your next home on wheels?
- Choose a name that makes you smile. Then you know you have made the right decision!
