Pinstriping Color

Perhaps a whimsical posting....
What's your favorite trailer pinstriping color? Why? How did you choose yours?
I'm leaning towards silver (grey). I think it looks elegant, rich, sophisticated. But, red is fun, blue is nice, green is outdoorsy..

We went with Battleship Gray (I think) because it goes with everything

I was very tempted to have white on white, but my wife nixed that idea pretty quickly. I'd still like to see it though.

Just as we were burned out by all the Formica samples we'd been looking at next to our upholstery and settling on one, the subject of graphics came up (we were at ETI).
Kim recommended Medium Gray as "going well with the aluminum wheels" and we jumped at it. We like it...

Went with black as it looks good with the windows, belly band and any vehicle

Went with batleship grey to match the tv. Funny, we always chuckled when seeing matching striping on tv and trailer, and now it's us!

We picked Teal. It matches nothing but I like the color.

When asked, my wife said "the EggCamper had black. That looked good, let's go with that."

At least it wasn't her usual "whatever, it's only a camper."

I was leaning towards black to match my tow vehicle, but thought it might be a little "out-there". However, I am pleasantly surprised by others choosing it. Can you post a picture?

I have to say I was a bit silly about the choice. I called for samples of their reds from the manufacturer of the vinyl, and matched them to my RAV4.

Okay, it matches the truck?

I picked primrose yellow. It doesn't match my pick-up or anything else...I just like yellow!
I don't know what color vehicle I will be driving in 5 or 10 years, but I do know what I'll be towing behind it!

We went with Iguana Green, as that is one of my wife's favorite colors.

The most different one was the bright yellow that matched the bright yellow truck tow vehicle. It was very striking and cheerful!
Mine is sedate silver. If it wouldn't blind other drivers, I might have chosen iridescent silver.
