Since our trailer is obviously silver we find that red - particularly Ford's toreador red - is a nice match with an airstream. We're on our 2nd F-series truck in that color in the last 4 years.

Hunter green in a close second. White gets too dirty too fast. Black is too hot in the desert summer sun. I'm tired of silver (I've had at least 3 silver cars.)

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?

Go for the color! Silver!

Any color goes with an Airstream. Our TV is two-toned electric blue with silver on the bottom.

I think Silver would be nice. It looks good with an Airstream. But we opted for the Toreador Red in Our F 350 (purchased before the airstream) and we also have that color that changes colors with changes in light on our 94 F150. ANY COLOR GOES GOOD WITH AN AIRSTREAM

We have the white sands tricoat. Reminds me of pearls and beautiful silver jewelry. We get comments all the time on the rig.

Of course, since the AS is always silver, in reality, ANY colour will work with it. I'd say though that the pale colours will mean less need for AC, and I've always felt that they show the dirt less, but of course, I could be crazy.

I've seen a nice colour on the new Ford F150 though, that appeals to me, they call it "ice blue". It's a metallic colour, quite smart, and does "call" to the darker blue in the stripes of the AS.

For me personally, the last colour I would choose would be silver, since the AS is un-painted AL, and you won't find any silver vehicle that will match the trailer. My (limited) colour sense says to get something that gives somewhat of a contrast, and yet complements the TT.

... green is always an option

We liked green (before it became PC); it blended into the woods a bit and the lighter color stays cooler/cleaner.

Obviously, the Jolly Green Giant's smile indicates his approval!

Like Road Ruler said (sorta) pick a theme that works together: gold, silver & black. Had we kept the trailer the awnings would have been replaced with something on this order.

In no perticular order, I like Pewter, White, or a very light Silver/Grey.
Because most trips are in hotter weather, will never have black, or red, just the thought of those colors sitting in a hot sun, makes my blood boil.

I hear some 2020 models will be iridescent polka dots, that shine in the dark, for safety reasons of course.
