Well, the paint has made it through another very hot summer in Oklahoma. This is just the Krylon spray paint that I thought may be a quick fix and it's held up wonderfully. Anyone who can't spend the $3,000.00 plus for the great paint job might consider the same quick fix I did. Twink looks great down at the lake and he's sure fun to camp in.

Torn between Champange vs Original Beige!


Before winter sets in up here in Canada (Alberta no less) I'm setting about repainting the exterior of my Argy. Another buddy (we can all use buddies, eh?) is a painter and is going to help me use his air compressor and sprayer. The shed is only available until frost up, so I'm on a tight schedule.

The only problem is...color!

Every night I go to bed completely satisfied that Champange is the color (think of a 2004 Toyota Corolla or a 2005 GMC truck). It's the color of a lot of new motorhomes too, and looks really sharp. Yup, I think, go with the updated look!

But then something happens overnight, and when I wake up, I'm completely convinced to stick with the original Light Beige! And for most of the day my mind is clearly set on the classic color. Yup, I say, the interior is modern, but the exterior is 100% retro.

But when the sun goes down...(and these days...when the sun goes down, it stays down for longer and longer! Plus the geese are heading south! Yikes!) is dark out...and I am thinking to go with Champagne!
