Default What colour would YOU like a Motor Home?

For years now all MH`s seem to be coloured the same old white--
something to do with keeping heat out in summer.

In a meet up ,it`s a sea of white

I notice that RV`s usually have a colour scheme why not a MH.

If you had a choice, what colour would you like yours to be?

Some RVs I've seen that have been "full paint" have looked terrible at just 4 years old, chips, flakes, ugly scratches. Though I should say the more expensive ones have the paint covered with a very hard clear finish which looks exceptionally durable. Our regular white sided vans stay nicer looking for longer.
