Help me decide.....

I'm down to trim color with the stock counter tops, choices are white which I hated because it made the floor look pale, brown was nice in BlackJack, it picked up the brown accents in the floor and counter tops and finally black. The stove is black and I'm wondering if choosing black trim if (1) I will get the same benefits from the brown complimenting the rest of the trailer and (2) in addition blend with the black stove top. Anyone have black trim and do they like it, pictures? Thanks

Jim, we have the black in the 21 as it matched the window trim.

Jim,
There's this too, if you find you don't like what you pick, or if you want to change with the season, you can always buy some additional material and change it out. It's only about two dollars a foot. We bought brown for the $700 table we built ( Norman Accounting Inc. ) and changed out the white for brown in the rest of the trailer. Wasn't hard at all.

Jim, I think black would look great. You don't want the trim to stand out on its own, but blend in with the colors. IMHO, which might not be much.

Can't go wrong with black , always a nice " underline or accessory "...... and love black graphics ... can't wait to see what you come up with for Prairie Schooner ... Blackjack was so perfect .....

Jim just ask Reace for a couple feet of whatever you don't choose and you can change it out later if you want.

Cheers

We have black, but also have a black with gray swirls, Formica. Also, switched the brown snap caps in the kitchen backsplash to black.

sorry, off topic, but i couldn't find the answer to my question when searching forum. Don't go on forum as much as i used to. Jim, are you switching back to a 19 from a 21? reasons ( if i may be so bold)?

Here's a link to Jim's earth shattering announcement:

BlackJack is gone, Prairie Schooner is being hatched...
