Our gasser is a couple of shades of green on white with silver accents (called Silver Sage color scheme). The the storage doors are dark green and get so hot in the FL sun that it hurts to touch them.
I can't imagine what a dark color on the upper surfaces would be like...ouch. While I'm at it, I wish the manufacturers would go more with coordinated solid colors on the interior instead of mixing several patterns. I hate those floral patterns on valances/furniture.

The only thing that you can't change is the pattern for that model year.
Am I safe in assuming that you would have to do this at the factory? I'd love to have something more custom than what's available on the lots. I can't imagine spending $300,000 to $400,000 for a house and having a choice of only three colors so I really like the idea of being able to be creative.

You don't necessarily have to go to the factory to pick your colors. Depending on the colors that you are interested in, you can pick from their standard chart (see below) or, if you want more choices, you can request them. Once you pick and choose your colors (typically up to 4 per paint scheme), then they will send you a sample rendering of your RV with your chosen colors that you'll have to sign off on for final approval. I've provided my paint scheme rendering as an example.

And, of course, the new coach has the open-only-at-the-bottom 2" with a twist of the knob jalousie windows and there is NO breeze.
Yes Beachdude, that is exactly what I'm talking about with the dark color

Tomakat, that is a beautiful coach, you chose wisely with the light shade of paint, especially over the cockpit.

Your question is observant, timely, and spot on. The current scarcity of any kind of sensible color selections on the part of RV manufacturers is appalling. It's almost as if there's a concerted conspiracy going on, the intent of which is to discourage sales of new RVs.

Brown, tan and grey, indeed. Humbug. And all the paisley. Eewwwww.

THat is about half the inventory here at this time.

My wife choose the darker colors on this RV..But the roof is white..Very white..Freshly laundered white (As In I washed it this afternoon).
I'll bet almost all of those white RVs are over 6 years old. Seems like the trend away from white and toward dark shades started around 2009.

You build what sales and it's as simple as that, so most sure their marketing people have this figured out by now.

Tom, thanks for posting the color chart. That is very helpful for one who is considering a new Dutch Star.

You're welcome!

The Dutch Star is a great choice (somewhat biased )!!! With Newmar, not only will you be able to customize your exterior paint scheme, but they will also allow you to be creative on the inside (with some restrictions). I picked different faucets, towel racks/toilet paper holder/robe hooks, backsplashes, countertops, added pullout shelves, added lights, changed window valance design, added solid paneled doors, etc. My Dutch Star is a custom Dutch Star and that's one of the reason that I went with a Newmar.

I know a couple with an Alfa MH that is solid white, with all markings and ID removed, it's named "the nude Alfa".

Our MH paint scheme is called Silverfoil, it's white, with silver(actually- very light gray) and medium gray on the bottom half of sides and rear.
