Black is Beautiful!

I like the look of Black and I went black. Too bad the rain storms dulled my polish job

I like bright colors, and I liked the Deep Ocean Pearl Blue with tan on our 1500 Ram

But.... we just bought an all WHITE Ram 2500 and honestly, I think it will hide my trail rash better and work better as an expo rig when driving around the desert.

Blue was so hard to keep clean.

I can win any argument on any subject. People know this and steer away from me at parties. Often as a sign of their respect, they don't even invite me.

The best color is White. Silver and black have lots of problems including being associated with the "Raiders". Reds attract the constabulary. Brown, gold, and other earth tones are great for hiding dirt, but not too good from a safety perspective. Yellow is great for safety, but who wants their theme song to be about a submarine. Orange is great for safety if you don't get pealed. Blue is a bit clouded and needs additional consideration, but while it might calm road rage it is not considered a safe color.

White shows up at night, in the day, and at dusk as well as sun up. It reflects sun so it's not too hot. It hides dirt as well as any color except the earth tones (remember we are not even considering silver - see above). White is also low profile, so it does not attract undue attention. And most important it's neutral and does not upstage the Shiny Airstream ....... note ALUMINUM is not silver. Pat

I like my charcoal truck with the silver TT, but would have chosen silver truck had I known I was getting an AS. Love the continuity of color and lines.

As long as it gets me where I'm camping, I don't care if it's plaid.
