It's all in the name
What would YOU call one of these?
Nooooooooooo, the model. To differentiate it from bigger/smaller models. Like they do with cars.
'Cos I've been driving about on the motorways of the good ol' U of K recently and no matter what time of year it is, you invariably see plenty of caravans. Why someone would choose to sit in a confined space without adequate toilet facilities miles from civilisation on a cold, wet day is perhaps a question for another time.
But, sit in them they do.
And what they sit in has a name.
Anyway, here's a few I spotted on my travels the other weekend.
A couple of them stand out for being quite obviously inappropriate. Which, for my money are...
Let's take "Marauder' first. My Boy's Book of Big Words tells me a 'marauder' is someone who spends a good portion of his time plundering, pillaging and generally scaring normal people shitless. Like this bloke for instance...
Hard to imagine him using a chemical toilet or sitting in his caravan doing a jigsaw while it pisses with rain outside.
Next up, is 'Swift'. Now, is this an image of 'swiftness'?
But someone must have thought it was a good name. Why?
HERE'S A MUCH BETTER LIST OF CARAVAN NAMES.
