I like bright colors, and I liked the Deep Ocean Pearl Blue with tan on our 1500 Ram



But.... we just bought an all WHITE Ram 2500 and honestly, I think it will hide my trail rash better and work better as an expo rig when driving around the desert.

Blue was so hard to keep clean.

The best color is White. Silver and black have lots of problems including being associated with the "Raiders". Reds attract the constabulary. Brown, gold, and other earth tones are great for hiding dirt, but not too good from a safety perspective. Yellow is great for safety, but who wants their theme song to be about a submarine. Orange is great for safety if you don't get pealed. Blue is a bit clouded and needs additional consideration, but while it might calm road rage it is not considered a safe color.

White shows up at night, in the day, and at dusk as well as sun up. It reflects sun so it's not too hot. It hides dirt as well as any color except the earth tones (remember we are not even considering silver - see above). White is also low profile, so it does not attract undue attention. And most important it's neutral and does not upstage the Shiny Airstream ....... note ALUMINUM is not silver. Pat

I like my charcoal truck with the silver TT, but would have chosen silver truck had I known I was getting an AS. Love the continuity of color and lines.

As long as it gets me where I'm camping, I don't care if it's plaid.

Pearl White with a touch of Silver.

We recently replaced a 2013 very Dark Blue RAM 1500 with this 2016 2500 Pearl White with a touch of Silver. Much easier to keep clean and better for the dogs in warm weather.

I agree completely!
We had a silver GMC Sierra gasser before the Silverado Duramax and liked it and may have chosen silver again except we got the LTZ Z71 4X4, loaded for $12K off (with undercoating & spray-in bedliner thrown in)...

"Brownstone Metallic” suites me just fine!

Just my opinion, but the people who look at your rig on the road or in a campground probably don't notice the color, or even make, of a TV. They just see the Airstream.

As an aside, our TV is white; because white fades the least and is the coolest to touch (and air condition) in the desert southwest. Black and dark colors will burn skin in the summer; and silver and other metallics fade, yellow and peel after several years. White lasts the longest, which is important because we keep our Toyotas until they rot into the ground.
