John Balentine’s recent column on RV models amused me greatly. Indeed, I share his interest and wonderment at some of their names.  The ones he mentioned are among those I hold dear.  There are, however, a couple of others worth mentioning.

The Hurricane and The Avalanche, for obvious reasons, seem to me to be examples of less-than-brilliant marketing, far worse than The Storm.  My personal favorite, and the one I search for during the many trips my husband and I take to and from Connecticut and Maine, is The Bounder.  If you check the dictionary you will find “bounder” defined as “a cad, an unprincipled, ill-mannered man.” An appealing name for a vacation vehicle?  I think not.
