That is good to know. But it is kinda fun to think of different colors. Can you imagine a red one with black spots like a Lady Bug?

On my way home from the ocean last week I saw a number of large motor homes and 5th wheels that looked like billboards in transit. It was almost as though they were yelling, “Look at me, I'm really special”. Then I realized how much I like the simple graphics of our white Escapes, nothing that's yelling at you yet enough to identify the brand.

Actually, I have been amazed at the attention mine gets, and I have the silver graphics to match my Sienna, which I think is conservative.

True enough. They're relatively unique, smaller, and just about everywhere we stop we get questions and inquiries.

You also have to be careful with dark colors and fiberglass. Heat and fiberglass don't mix. Look at most fiberglass "kit" airplanes (Lancair for example) and the majority are white or a lighter color. If they do have any dark color to them it's usually on the bottom where it's not as much in direct sunlight.

Once you paint gel coat there is no going back.
