Three lessons learned in the process:

1) Pick your color from color samples from the paint shop and don't use the factory paint code on the Airstream site. The factory code is beige but with a slight yellow tint. I guess that was the look in the 70's. The coach still looks great but the yellow tint makes the condition look older than it really is.

2) The orange rub rail trim insert fades VERY quickly. Like 2 months! I was very disappointed. I wasn't expecting 10 years of vibrant orange but 2 months? Come on!

3) The metallic dark brown in the center section and lower sections looks great!

Sorry to hear about the rub rails. Where did you get them - if it matters. The ones my PO purchased from Inland faded fast. I've removed them and want to replace, but not sure what to do.

I purchased the orange rub rail from Inland RV also.

How much did it cost to have it painted?
