The Perfect TV Color

O.K. ... what is the perfect T.V. color, the color that will best enhance (but not overpower) the timeless style of the Airstream. Is it funeral parlor black, fire-engine red, German racing silver, palomino gold, split-pea green metallic, angel white, danger sign yellow, or true blue?

I happen to favor palomino gold (the color of my truck) which gives you a silver and gold combination when all hooked up.

Is the TV to be mounted on the inside or outside of the coach?

Seriously, I would match the TV's appearance to it's surroundings, like the color of the woodwork or style of the furniture. You can't see the outside of your coach or the color of your truck when you are watching the tube.

I don't recall taking a picture of my house with me to BestBuy when I bought my den TV...

In my opinion, anything other than black will call attention to itself.

I was really thinking about T.V. as in tow vehicle color ... I definitely prefer silver in T.V. as in television color. What color should the truck, van, automobile, or tractor be?

Does anyone ever stop and say, "My, how nice that tow vehicle coordinates with the bare aluminum trailer."? Of course not. The truck/van/car/suv either looks good or it doesn't.

Mine is white, too, by the way.

i would have to say indigo blue and silver work well with the trailer.

however, it is the orange motorcycle that really sets it all off!

That's MY setup!

John,

Except for the wrong Airstream, and lack of dirt on the truck, THAT'S MY SETUP!" How did you get the picture?
