    Why do motorhome builders always (98% of the time)supply their vehicles in white with just the odd decal here and there.I know the base vehicles come in white and white reflects the sun but its all pretty boring dont you think.
    Id like to see 2 tone green that the old Commer Highwayman used to come in and some of the Bedford CA`s,VW etc also had some great colour schemes.
    What would you like to see or is it only me that feels like this.
    The stupid names also , mines Firestorm:RollEyes::Laughing:

    If You have ever been in a Spanish sun with temps in the shade of high 30's and low 40's the you would be glad of a white body.

    You prolly wouldn't Doug, it would all too soon be beetroot red and very very painful! LOL

    You are of course 100% correct, this is why in hot places - Spain, Greece etc - they paint their entire houses Omo white! (and shut the shutters)

    What you really need is BUGGER:

    If OMO doesn't whiten it

    And DAZ doesn't brighten it

    BUGGER it!:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Yes, I agree. It would be better if m/homes, and caravans for that matter, blended a bit more into the landscape as well as looking more interesting.

    My last Vw camper I imported from California and that was red with a white roof,but suppose it doesn't get very hot there.:BigGrin: If this white thing was only to do with the hot climates ,then all the vehicles there would be white and there not.
