I'm inclined to prefer "brilliant silver metallic", "Oxford white", and "black" in that order. They also have a "white sand tri-coat metallic" which is the only one that costs extra ($500).

Thoughts? Monochromatic color palette? Or pop of color?

I think my Combo looks like a pretty HOT pair. My 17ft AS Safari Sport and my Jeep Commander 4x4 V8 limited. Here's a pic of what they look like together.

Awesome bunch of replies. What a great group this is here.

I think I was right that Airstream tow vehicles tend to be colorless (somewhere between white and black inclusive).

I'm leaning towards Black, followed by Sliver, followed by White.

Read Durangos might be going bye-bye in the new world order of the auto industry.

I like either yellow or black. My mood will determine which color vehicle I use.

My last two TVs have been an off silver. The Chevy was Pewter, my present GMC is Birch Metallic. Both are easy to clean, and in tend to blend and take on the color of their surroundings.
I do however also own a silver FJR, Silver trailers x2 and my hair is turning ... hey I see a pattern!

I like red, I have painted my last two hot rods red. The Burb was white when I picked it up. The plan is to finish the sheet metal replacement, strip and paint it two tone blue and white. The f-250 will remain dark green and washed often.
