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!
