What color tow vehicle goes best with an Airstream?

Okay, here's a question for all of you. My wife and I will be getting a new tow vehicle within a year and we'd like to know what your opinions are on the best matching color an Airstream? We're not sure. Right now we have a charcoal grey truck but all suggestions are welcome. Incidentally, the charcoal grey truck rocks with the Airstream!

Yes, I decided on the silver/grey also, but when a deal too good to pass up on a like new Tundra in white, came along, I took it. I think white looks good, so does red.

Like stated any color goes good with AS but if I would ever pur. another tv it would be some color like my 2012 Ford Escape that is maybe a subtle gold or so as does not show dirt like some colors do. I wash often but no dirt showing as my other vehicles with random colors do show dirt

The marketing minds worked hard to name that one.

Truck looks great.

I prefer Toyota Tacoma (Tundra eventually) in silver metallic. With a matching cab-high camper it looks really good according to my wife (the only opinion that really matters )Click image for larger version

Ford marketing chose red - you can find pictures of a red F250 pulling an Airstream on their 250 webpages
