The TV is new and here to stay. We plan on keeping Virginia for the long run as well. I've tried to read up on painting decals, primer is important I think. Painting the skinny little stripes will be tough!!
When the bland silver rub rail material on my '14 goes bad (and it will) I plan to replace it with blue which I think looks very very good with Airstream silver. Airstream used it for years and it always looked nice.
I have thought of doing the opposite- the Airstream blue stripe and Classic logo on my tow vehicle.

I would lean towards BoldAdventures solution - and use a vinyl solution. Along this theme I've had good luck with 3M ScotchCal striping tapes. Available in lots of colors and widths. You might get lucky and find OEM striping. These tapes are usually readily available from automotive paint supply shops. some brochures available at:
I have done both..painted the striping and used vinyl. I prefer vinyl, but with masking tape and spray paint you can easily paint. I found vinyl boat striping on EBAY for cheap and it looked great.. Matched my awning colors.
Great. Thank you. Did you prime? My awning will not match but the color we are owing is pretty neutral so I think it will be fine. It should look sharp going down the road for sure! We just painted the air conditioner and vent covers!! Love them.
On one I had it was already painted horribly...so I sanded it all down and striped over it with vinyl. I have used primer before painting but on my present 66 Overlander the stripes are skinny and small, so I used spray paint masked out.
Here is the one that had the bad blue paint...redone in vinyl
