Default Poll: Your favorite exterior color

Do you like color on your Class B? Now that Iíve been looking a while, Iíve noticed that most vans are somewhere in the black-to-white spectrum, but recently manufacturers are selling vans in red, yellow and blue (not all at once!). Seems that in the past, manufacturers have offered a very limited palette so I find the change refreshing, but wondered what others thought.

I wish I could make this a two-part poll, because Iíve also noticed that while exteriors tended to be white, older interiors could be anything, from green and gold in the 70ís, teal in the late 90ís and (apparently) pink in the early 2000ís. Iíd be interested in whether folks like their outside plain but the inside wild, or vice-versa, but, alas, I can only ask one thing so Iím going to focus on the exterior.

Red. I don't do stealth.

Hi Phoebe,

my RV is mostly white with gold-coloured highlights ... stands out like a sore thumb when boon docking (which is not necessarily what I want). More muted colours suit my preference.

Cheers,

Steve

I live where it's hot- I wouldn;t consider a dark vehicle



( last car shopping cycle most of the cars on the chev lot were black/black- I bought a light green toyota with a light tan interior)

our van is white, tan seats, maple cabinetry.

Hey there, Eric, if you selected Red in the poll, it didn't show up - Red hasn't been selected at all.

I prefer silver because it doesn't show the dust and dirt. LOL


My previous RV was a dark gray, which looked great, but showed EVERYTHING... every rain drop... dew drop... grain of dust... (I don't have an obsession with washing cars or RVs... LOL... OK... I'm lazy)

Good to hear - we bought a silver van, color secondary to price - can't wait to pick it up in a couple of days. Very excited!

How exciting! Which one did you decide to get? Are you traveling to another state to pick it up?

I think dark gray looks the best. However, white (which is what I actually have) is by far the most practical, from a heat management perspective.

Advanced RV gives you the choice of color - all 24 of them from Mercedes Benz Sprinter. My next one, if there is a next one, will be green. I selected Metallic Graphite Grey for my current one when there were very few of that color and thought I was been different. Now that is a very popular choice for many manufacturers and not so unusual now. Not too long ago you could only get white, silver or light bronze or whatever that color was. The Promaster made Red a popular color. Of course the FitRV made Yellow acceptable. Maybe not. I haven't seen another yellow one.
