    If you were buying a new PVC, what colour would you choose and why?

    The way I see it metallic silver or grey is 'safe' whilst red or blue might be a little 'on the edge'.

    Do you think dark colours get dirty quicker?

    Do you think certain colours (not green or brown:shout:) are best when wild camping?

    All thoughts welcomed :Wink:

    The van I have now is metallic silver and I have not found the need to wash it as yet, unlike the cream and white vans I have owned in the past where I was for ever washing and trying to get black streaks off.

    for wild camping i suppose a camouflage one would be best unless out in snow where white may be better.:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    The only danger being you wouldn't want to walk too far away from it for fear of not being able to spot it in the wilds..........:Rofl1:

    I've always fancied tiger stripes.

    I'm so old I can still remember the advertising slogan,'put a tiger in your tank'. :Laughing:

    Funny you should say that, whilst grubbing around in the garage the other week I found my tigers tail, given by I think Esso garages. Do you remember them tied to the filler cap haha.

    Trouble with the metallic grey/silver is that although it doesn't show the dirt, it doesn't show up in fog either. For some reason it always seems to be the grey cars that don't put their lights on.
