I wound up with a black truck - just because that happened to be what they had on the lot and the price was right!

I do think it goes nicely with the silver of the Airstream though - course I am partial to the combination of black and chrome on motorcycles too!

Its a bit of a labour of love to keep it looking clean though -just bought oneof those carwash gadgets with a special ionizing filter that prevents water spotting. It works well.

I don't find heat in a black vehicle to be a problem - probably takes a bit more fuel with the AC cranked up a bit higher though!

I bought my tow vehicle way before ever considering getting a trailer and got it used. It just happened to be this color. But I must say they look good together and I'm thankful the vehicle has the towing package. It wasn't really something I looked for. I just liked the truck and it suits my SUV/Truck needs. Funny how things work out sometimes.

I like the charcoal--it matches the banana wrap! We have a Silver F250 too, but I like the ride of my Expedition!

I think Black looks nice because it doesnt take any emphasis off the main attraction, the trailer!

Blue because the last truck was red and it was time for a change. Too many silver and white vehicles to buy another. Black and brown look dirty too fast, but so does blue, but not as fast. Green—never.

Blue in different forests, different coasts, different elevations (just about sea level to 10,000'), different seasons—Florida, Colorado, Minnesota, Oregon

I’m partial to Blue… here are a few pictures of a trip this summer to Chama NM. The truck and Airstream have only been parked for a month now and I’m already read for summer adventures again!

Silver is the most popular vehicle colour in North America. Is anyone surprised?





It does surprise me how many people are surprised that I tow the Sovereign with just a 4.2 litre V6. Hey, that's Ford power!
