ISO silver graphics picture?

We've rounded third and are getting ready to slide into home on our 21 build but we're stumped on our graphics color choice.

Anybody have a picture handy to share with us of silver graphics as well as thoughts on fade resistance? From the sample sheet, silver, unlike the grays, seems to have a little depth and metalic sheen. True?

Our backup is good old safe Scarlet Red which we have now on our 19 but kinda are feeling like living on the wild side with something else.

Thanks,

Greg

I like the red which we have on our 19 That said, if I were buying a new one I'd be looking those colors over with great interest. I really like the dark greens and dark blues too. Silver might be pretty classy too. Don't remember seeing it on any rigs though.

A combination of Soft Pink and Cherry would sure look nice, Greg.

We had Avery send us a colour sample book. Colours are true, and a bit different then anything we found online, and my monitors are all colour calibrated too.

Think we're going to avoid the GQ 2015 color of the year: iguana green! I get plenty of that on my windshield after a road trip.

Sarah was telling saying Battleship Gray is big for 2016. Think we need a bit more excitement tho. I'm still pulling for desert camo but sliver might do.

What color did you pick for your new rig?

My Escape 19 was recently completed and I have the silver graphics. I won't be seeing it in person until May 19th so can only go by these pictures: https://redtaco99.smugmug.com/Escape-Trailer-RV

Thanks, Jim. I like it. I guess some of the pictures I've seen on the forum were for the other grays that seemed too light and we got worried about a wrong choice. Silver seems dark enough to stand out and looks great with the wheel upgrade!

¡Gracias!

BTW, Last fall I traded in the old 1998 red tacoma for a silver 2015 F150. I'm hoping the silver graphics will look good with the tow vehicle.

Should, your gorgeous new 19 will look great even pulled by an old Yugo! Good choice!

Here's a couple of photos of ours that matches our Tundra. The silver is a bit subdued but we like it.

Looks classy John. I like the silver. Now, a silver reflective belly band, and you're all set.

Maybe ETI doesn't have a choice, but I wish those "bright white" painted wheel rims more closely matched the color of the fiberglass so they would blended in better with the camper rather than standing out so starkly. But maybe that's just me....

Wow when you look at the picture of the trailer with white rims ,it is pretty stark looking . We just got the fancy wheels to match truck and I think they look nice . Pat

Well, you could take 'em off, clean, prep, prime, and then, the Color is Krylon Dover White. Then, maybe a reflective silver pinstripe! (Lots of work; I hate "prep".)

Or, as Pat has said, the alloy wheels look really nice when your tow has 'em as well.
