Just jumping in but I really wanted Black/Onyx But then I remembered a Cadillac XLR-V I once owned (compensating I'm sure) but it was black with black leather.

I swore when I sold it I would NEVER own another blk/blk vehicle.

Like crawling in an oven every time I got in it.

We settled on silver (in case we decide we need a Bambi to pull behind later).

I still get envious when I pass a black one on the road, but then remember why I didn't get one.

I may park it in the cool weather (Illinois) but I don't plan on camping in it anywhere it is below 50! (That's why it has wheels - to take me to warm weather).

We went beige interior - onyx was too dark - beige just made us smile when we stepped inside.

Vote: Silver/Beige.

After reading this thread I realize I made the biggest mistake of my life. I bought a black 2013 Interstate Ext with the light interior. Even though my wife and I have enjoyed our travels in Florida, it must have been hotter than we thought inside the rv. So maybe we didn't enjoy ourselves. Even though I can wash the entire rv in less than 20 minutes, it must have taken longer because it is black. Even though I own a silver 2008 a Corvette in mint condition I should have bought another silver vehicle. Maybe every vehicle we own from now on will be silver. I got to get rid of this rv before it's too late. What a disaster!!

Do I detect an ever so slight hint of sarcasm?

Seriously,

I can't wash anything in 20 minutes. How you do that?

I think that was part of the sarcasm.

Cleaning requires the following equipment: telescoping microfiber wash mitt, squeegee, bucket and a good car wash soap. Break up the vehicle into 6 sections. Do not allow soap and/or water to dry onto surface. So long as you keep surface wet, squeegee can be done at the end of the wash, Use a microfiber dry cloth to finish. Between washes I use Griot's Speed Shine with a blue microfiber cloth and Griot's Spray car wash (Waterless) with green microfiber cloth. Never any swirl marks on paint. I have used these Griot products for over 6 years on my Corvette. The Corvette has never been washed the conventional way with water. The paint is showroom new. The one area of the interstate that gets dirty is the hood and that portion above the windshield. The Griot's Products are used on these sections the most. Also the Alcoa wheels are a pain. So long as dirt is kept off the wheels polishing is necessary maybe every other month.

I don't see why not. If I hadn't bought used, that's what I'd try to order.

Just got back from Vegas and while there took a trip to Wagon Trail RV. Great place to shop if you are in the market for a B or B+. Had Airstream, Pleasureway, Leisure Travel and even a used Roadtrek.

They had a brand new Black Airstream Interstate Ext and while gorgeous from afar, already had swirl marks up close

You are CRAZY!!! If you have to ask the question you already know the answer. Besides all the maintenance for a neat freak, THEY ARE HOT AS A PISTOL. call me names, but red faces hot and sweaty is NOT bad ass, just dumb ass. Ok. I have a white roof on my house and all my cars are white except the interstate which is silver but I'd buy white if I could. So I am not neutral.

Tell us how you really feel lol.

Different strokes for different folks but calling People a dumb ass on your 13th post is not a way to win friends but I think you already know that.

I can tell you after traveling along with our friends in their new BLACK Interstate from San Diego to Lake Charles Louisiana, the black ones are definitely bad ass looking but do attract some of the wrong types of attention which was one of my concerns.
