Funny Camper Names: What Were They Thinking?

We have a list of funny camper names for your entertainment. This list is also an excellent way to inspire you to name your camper. While we can’t tell you exactly what people were thinking when coming up with these funny names for RVs, we can hint at the stories behind these names. We hope to encourage you to give your RV a creative name that matches its style.

Let’s dive in!

Do People Name Their RVs?

People name the craziest things, from their boats and cars to their bikes. Some people nickname their plants, shoes, and hats. So, it makes sense that people even name their RVs. 

While campers aren’t the same as pets, people name them after their style, just like they name pets after their personalities. So, when it’s time to find a funny camper name for your RV, you should choose a nickname that fits your home on wheels as much as the name you chose for your furry companions.

Why Do People Name RVs?

RVs are like traveling companions, and that is one of the main reasons why people name their RVs. When on the road, the RV is your home. It’s a safe space. RVs provide a warm, comfy location to gather when the weather isn’t so inviting. 

To many people, RVs are a part of their family because they create memories by traveling to many memorable places. For that, RVs deserve names. More than likely, those names will be off-the-wall silly.

Should I Name My Camper?

Just because many people name their campers doesn’t mean you have to. But let’s be honest; we know you want to name your camper. While you may not know the name yet, you may have picked some funny camper names already. So, go for it and give your trailer a name. Your RVs name might spark conversations and create new friendships.

Pro Tip: Can’t think of a good name for your RV? These are 5 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Name Your Camper.

Whether you’re renting a camper for a short stay or living in an RV full-time, giving it a funny name can make it feel like home.

Funny Camper Names

To help you on your camper naming journey, we’ve compiled a list of some of the funniest camper names we’ve seen. Whether you name your RV for its color, purpose, or money-hogging qualities, be sure to call it something that resonates with you. After all, your RV is your travel companion. Your travel companion deserves just as much attention as you do. So why not do it with a funny name?

The Money Pit

Anyone who owns an RV knows that it seems like there is always something to fix. There’s also always something to buy to fix it or a repair shop you must pay. The Money Pit is a perfect name for those who love their RV but recognize that it’s not effortless to maintain.

Beddy White

Who doesn’t love a reference to Betty White? She was an excellent actress who made everyone laugh. Turn Betty into Beddy, and you have a creative camper name that keeps everyone rolling… down the road and in laughter.

Glorious Gypsy

If you picture yourself as a carefree gypsy, moving from place to place whenever you want, why not call your camper Glorious Gypsy? Freedom is glorious, so this name matches the autonomy of full-time living. You may not be a gypsy, but when traveling, you likely feel like one.

Liberty on Wheels

Speaking of freedom, we imagine that’s what the owners of Liberty on Wheels thought when they named their camper. An RV is a tool that can get you anywhere you want to go. That’s liberating!

Dora the Explorer

Who needs a map when you named your camper Dora the Explorer? Even the kids will love this name. Whenever it’s time for a camping trip, tell the family to hop in Dora the Explorer, and they’ll do anything you say when Dora’s in charge of the adventure.

Roam Sweet Home

A home doesn’t have to be stationary. So if you feel at home in your camper, this funny camper name is a perfect fit. Roam Sweet Home will take you anywhere you want to go. When you’ve explored all day, your home is by your side, no matter where you are.

Big Bertha

For big rigs that confidently roar down the highway, you can’t beat a name like Big Bertha. Hefty, powerful, and full of energy to get you into any campground, a camper with a name like Big Bertha is the way to go for those with all the toys.

Vinny Van Go

Are you not so into the Big Bertha’s? Perhaps you’re more of a van-lifer with an artsy, creative side. Vinny Van Go might be the name for your camper. It may not be as famous as Van Gogh’s Starry Night painting, but your van can get you to those starry nights.

RV life can get tiring. Give yourself a giggle by giving your camper a funny name.

Rolling FUNder

Oh, what fun it is to ride in an RV, and what better funny camper name is there than Rolling FUNder? When rolling down the road and having fun, this name fits like a long-lost puzzle piece. Wouldn’t you rather have rolling FUNder than rolling thunder? We thought so!

Cram A Lot Inn

Whether on vacation or living in your RV full-time, you’ll want to bring everything. It doesn’t matter how small your house is; something is always hard to find because people can cram a lot into a small space. When that space is where you also sleep, Cram A Lot Inn might be one of the greatest names of RVs of all time.


Arvie is at the top of funny camper names. However, when you introduce your camper as Arvie, people might give you strange looks. After all, who names their RV “RV”? Some might not catch the ingenuity of this name until they see it spelled out as A-R-V-I-E. Cute, right? 

Life Coach

We all need some coaching at one point in our lives, so why not use that as inspiration when finding funny names for RVs? This funny camper name might make your RV the best life coach you’ll ever have. After all, it takes you to all the places you’ve always wanted to experience. Thanks, Life Coach!

While many of us might have enjoyed tent camping when we were young, we’re likely not so keen on tent camping now. If you’re in the same boat, naming your camper, NotATent might be the perfect camper name for you. Heading into the great outdoors with an RV instead of a tent sounds like a plan. How about you?

The Rolling Stones

Bring classic music for a retro road trip with your camper’s iconic name, The Rolling Stones. There’s nothing better than rolling down the highway, and the Rolling Stones can keep you company.


The Terminator might be the best name for a futuristic robot trying to save the world, but the Travelnator takes the cake when it’s time to name your camper. You may not be on a journey to save the world, but with the Travelnator by your side, it will be an epic trip.

Are Funny Names for RVs Worth It?

Giving an RV a funny camper name is worth it. After all, laughter is the best medicine, and you will leave a lasting impression on your fellow campers. It allows you to show off your sense of humor, be creative, and make memories that will last a lifetime. 

A funny camper name also serves as an excellent conversation starter. It gets everyone chatting happily about their trips away from home. With some imagination, you can give your RV a unique personality and provide countless hours of amusement.

We named our 20’ R-Pod LIL’ TEXAS ROADHOUSE. Due mostly to it physical description. We tried out other names but this one gave us a chuckle and it stuck. It’s little, we live in Texas and it’s our house while on the road. It take awhile to get comfortable using a name other than simply THE RV. We even made a custom adhesive name sign. Even tho it doesn’t roll off our tongues we now just call it ROADHOUSE for short. It works for us.

Years ago, we had a little third-hand Aljo Ally. It was about 13', single axle and those brown tones from the 80's. We named it the Tater Tot.

Tallulah Tioga, because she is a drama queen that has required more $$ to repair her than we orginally paid for her. A 1997 that can still flash her peacock tail. One more roof moulding and we'll be seen at a campground near you!

I named my Tag Boondock GoBeWan(der) Nomadi... GoBeWan for short. Albeit, I am a Star Wars fan, I really chose it for the fact that I can just hook up and Go, Exist simply, and Wander!
