Totally Inappropriate RV Name Game

On a typical day, a front country park ranger encounters an endless convoy of land yachts. The model names often belie the lumbering, cumbersome, cushy, awkward nature of the vehicles, opting for the friendly ("Hitchhiker"), the agile ("Arrow"), the rugged ("Road Ranger") and the majestic ("Ambassador"). Getting stuck behind such a vehicle on the way to a program or meeting, knowing all the while that the passengers probably just want to see "that thar tree y'all can drive through" before plodding on to check off the next box on their national park hit list used to bum me out; but then a good ranger friend turned me on to the RV Name Game.

The very simple rules:

1. Collect all the RV names you see in a day.
2. Append the adjective "anal" to the beginning of each name.
3. Compare them with what everybody else has seen at the end of the day.
4. The ranger with the funniest combination wins.

In my book, nothing has topped the combination of the "Crescendo" and the "Encore" (in order!), but I've always favored the classier names, especially when alliterative ("Ambassador," "Admiral"); but some opt for the low-brow winners ("Invader," "Blaster"). Whatever floats your land yacht, I guess.

Today I saw the Anal Explorer and the Anal Ranger. I thought it would have been fun to have them get together eh?
