This second photo is the first one I have taken of the new trailer (early July of 2014) and for reasons unknown I kinda like it.

We have 2 choices....a yellow '69 Olds Ninety Eight and a RED Buick convertible. The Buick is now receiving a new engine so I'm certain RED will be our favorite this year.

Buy a new F150, strip the paint and polish it to a high luster.

Despite being very happy with our midnight blue TV, your classic red Buick convertible looks truly outstanding ahead of that vintage shiny aluminum.

OK, OK ... if it's towing an Eddie Bauer - any color works! ...as long as it is polished (but not necessarily stripped first!)

I'm partial to Silver for my TVs. Both incarnations of our Tacoma RV are silver. Looks like a matched set with the AS, IMHO.

I am partial to Gold or White for my tow vehicles, but I could not find a good enough deal on one when it was time to retire the F250 (with the FWC popup). We did get a deeply discounted price on the new F350, so it looks like Ruby Mist is now our favorite. In the shop lot are 'The Moose, and Big Ruby'.

I find that a contrasting color to silver looks best. Trying to match an auto silver paint is often a miss. Too much of a contrast as with red can be confusing too as in a few years ago when I was fueling our classic convertible with our vintage Airstream in tow. A suited gentleman driving a luxury sedan pulled in off the avenue to along side me. He leaned out of his window and asked, "What year is it"? As is most such queries I replied, "It's a '71 Buick Centurion". "NO, NO......the Airstream....what year"?

I tend to agree that sharply contrasted TV colours work nicely. Red, green, blue, black...

But as with most things, the best colour for a TV is the one you have.

Ingot Silver Ford F350. What we did not realize when we ordered it is the wheels match the new 16" wheels on the 2015 AS with 16" Sendel wheels - chrome with black highlights.

Now, THAT'S how you do it!

Like a few others on here, I'm partial to the color TV that I own... Whatever color that may be.

-Red, jelly over the Buick...
