Kids have named the nissan XTrail "the beast"  (just wait until a Patrol is in budget!) and our Cavalier camper is "Chuck".

Has "The Beast" any beastly attributes? LS3 conversion with SAS maybe?

The tug(80 series 1hdt), The Bus.
It was a school bus a few years ago, not only taking the kids to school, when I had the third row seats in, we would take another three kids to sport events.
The Camper, Touche(as in Touche the Turtle)

The tug is "Max", both the name of a now departed pet, and shorthand for the Isuzu DMax.

She naturally names things, so the van got a moniker as well. I wanted call it "MightyVan" (as in "My TVan"), complete with a small cartoon of Mighty Mouse on the rear deck; but in the flawed democracy that is marriage, it turns out "Molly" was the right name after all, and any pimping has to be dragons...

I'm glad we aren't the only ones! Our non camper friends laugh when we refer to our vehicles by name.

The previous challenger was Charlie (seems to be popular), and when we upgraded to essentially the same vehicle (same model same colour) we had to keep Charlie so he now gets Charlie II, CJ (Charlie Junior) or Charlie Boi

The previous camper was Thomas. We are now in the process of debating new names for the new camper.

The other vehicle is Tommy Tiida, and the old x-trail was Noddy.

my old defender was called "Fergie", blew smoke like and shared a top speed with a Ferguson Tractor

My new defender was named "Pepper" after I parked it next to our old one. one was white and one was black. I'll let you guess which one pepper is.

Hi,
   Mate had a converted Toyota Coaster with "For Play" written above the windscreen.
Another mate, Mervyn, had "Mervana" on the back of his caravan.
Cheers
