Please help name our T@B teardrop travel trailer

   POINT RICHMOND - After all the years of sailing on SF Bay, the California Delta and the ocean (as far south as Zihuatenejo, Mexico) Admiral Fox and I have purchased a land yacht, a bright red T@B teardrop trailer.
     This will come as no surprise to the 100 or so friends who already commented on Facebook in the last 24 hours in response to a post by the Admiral as we took delivery on the trailer Saturday and pulled it home from Santa Clara.
     Travel plans include a sojourn to Seneca Lake in NY this summer (no kidding, I know). But plenty of other destinations in California, Oregon, Washington State - and other west-of-the Mississippi states - are up for consideration, too.
     There's even some loose talk about driving the Calgary, Canada - if the snow ever melts.
   BUT the trailer really needs a good name, other than just the red trailer.
     Already in the running are two possible sobriquets: 'Red Writer' and 'Rocinante.'
     It would be nice to have more to consider, which is why I am tossing this out to the incredibly creative Fitz-Fox brain trust.
     If you have a red-hot idea (sorry, that's really an awful pun even from me), send it along via email or blast it up on Facebook.
     The reward for the person who comes up with the best name?
     A bottle of wine, of course.
     If the winner is in California, I have a bottle of Atwater Riesling Bubble waiting. If they happen to be in the Finger Lakes, I will bring a bottle of Mondavi's best when I travel east - if bringing California wine into the Finger Lakes is even allowed!

Is Red Rover too obvious?
Congrats and cheers!
