Best color for a tow vehicle???

Since we can not agree on so many of a tow vehicle attributes lets deepen the chasm a little further.

What is the best color for an Airstream tow vehicle?
Do you choose your color to be he most photogenic, safest or why?

I'll go first.

White! Because it is what we currently have...

White, because it doesn't detract from the beauty of what it's pulling.

I kind of like silver. I think that it compliments an Airstream the best.

Maroon is also nice, but I still like silver better.

Ford F350 Ingot Silver. Almost matches the Stream and does not show dirt as readily as some other colors.

I'm going with the one I own - a two tone. My truck was all white when I bought it but I had the bottom painted a factory color like the more expensive trim levels.

You need to have a nice complimentary color, like brownstone.

Black looks great but never looks clean and it hot. Now silver looks clean all the time even when it's not. Looks great with my AS.

I started with matching colors with my first trailer. Like the idea but have not continued.
Those 36 horses could not pull the Airstream.

I had a white Tundra but when I got my Ram 2500 I decided on Silver.

Is that a Meyers Manx?
