It’s totally a ‘thing’ to look up camper names once you buy a camper of your own. As soon as you tell your family that you bought an RV they’re going to ask you if you’ve thought of any RV names yet.
So, have you?
We learned quickly that our KIDS wanted us to name our RV and even our mini-van that we drove along with it. Much like you research baby names after places if you’re a big traveler like us.
I did a little research online for motorhome names, but it ended up being my husband who suggested the name ‘Morph’ for our RV since we had two slides that would open up and ‘morph’ it into our house each time we set up.
But what RV names could possibly fit your camper? Are you living in your RV full time and want to name your home on wheels? Or do you take your camper out on the weekends instead of tent camping?
You’ll find ideas with our list of RV names below.

They’re always so fun to say. So if funny is what you want, check out the names below.
