Susan said Pink. I said, ummmmmmm.

Ours is white with silver on the bottom.

Our color choice was limited by the rapidly dwindling end of 2012 model year inventory. First choice was the burgandy color but was second to the required towing options we needed. I have always liked the burgandy color.

The 2007 Mercedes is Iridium Silver so nearly matches the aluminum of the 23D.

Best color for a tow vehicle???

Wife likes trucks in silver. End of discussion at our house. She bought the first Toyota Tacoma crew cab long bed. I bought the second one in 4x4 short bed. Both are silver. Looks nice with the AS, looks nice by itself.

If it's the least bit foggy, rainy, or AS in tow, all the lights are on for safety and visibility to others on the road.

Hey m.hony! I think your earlier question was aimed at me. Our TV is a 2014 limited 4x4 w the 5.7. She pulled our EB 12,000 miles last year including to the highest point in the US interstate system (the Ike tunnel in CO) and below sea level (the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel in VA). Planning another 12,000 or so this year starting as soon as the rest of America has weather that meets the strict standards we Floridians subscribe to.

I like blues and greens. A few years ago I saw a neat teal looking color on a dodge that I was told was a dealer/factory special order.
But, if there are two identical trucks with different colors and the least liked color is substantially less $$, I'll learn to like that color. The $$ saved would allow more trips😎

[QUOTE=m.hony;1764356]I have considered blue striping on the tow vehicle to match the trailer.

That's a good idea too

We've pulled with silver, black and white trucks; the aluminum Airstream makes any color truck look better.

I'll go with white, since it helps blend-in with the scenery at elevation (well, some of the time).

We have a deep metallic green on our TV and it looks pretty good. I choose that color because it was the only long bed, 2WD, V10, F250 in Nashville, at the time I bought it. It was a rush job because my old GMC laid down on me as we were leaving on a western trip. It is hot and it does look dirty after the first rain and/or pollen-fall. I think I will go with silver next time, if it's a good match with the AS.
