Graphics Fan?

How many of you like all the graphics, whether vinyl or paint. Do you think them gaudy or beautiful? Would you rather have a manufacturers offer simpler color schemes?

I saw a 2011 Monoco Vesta with a two tone paint scheme that looked nice. Far simpler and to me more elegant. But that's just me. Curious

I like the graphics and would not buy something I though was ugly.

My wife isn't a big fan of all the swooshes, but we both admit that too bland doesn't work either. She feels that single color rigs tend to look like commercial vehicles.

Manufacturers do tend to get more and more fancy, and carried away. We too tend to the simpler. Another complaint we have is everyone's love affair with black. Some brighter colors and a lot less black would go a long way to making a more striking coach and one that doesn't show the dirt like all the black does. We are seein some slight movement in these directions, but it's very slooooow.

We like the swirls. We tend to like a good amount of black as well. It just seems that when using black as part of the color palette, they tend to also use golds and burgundies. I like what Entegra coach has done with adding bright greens and blues to their black coaches. Really sets them apart. Now if somebody could come out with a coach that is mostly pearl white with some of the bright colors, that could be refreshing. There is something to be said for the classic swirly paint schemes, while some think they're gaudy,it does scream high end coach

Funny, awhile back I had a thread about the color tan. Seems we've moved toward black these days. My coach is green and silver. Personally, I like the simpler designs. But it is fun to see all the different coaches and designs out there.

At our favorite local State Park, one of the attendants has a white coach, the windows and tires are dark, but other than that, it's white. Don't know if it came that way or they had it redone. I'll have to agree with a comment above about it doesn't exactly remind you of a motorhome.
We have basically black and lots of swirls.

Personally, I like all the swirls and 4 color paint designs and so must 99 percent of new coach buyers because every new coach we looked at, had a fancy paint job. We were only shopping in the 150k to 300k range so I cant speak to the other price ranges
I did notice that there seems to be a trend for lighter colors, less black and gold then a few years ago.

I like most of the graphics I've seen. One or two may have been a bit gaudy for my taste, but hey... it wasn't my RV, so to each his or her own

We did once see an all white Class A rolling into a park, and I get what they were going for, but honestly it just looked like the world's biggest refrigerator on wheels. Not at all appealing.

I'm generally pleased with the exterior graphics on my RV (pictured in my signature below) but even I think they're a little on the bland side. I wouldn't mind if they were just a little more blingy, and I've been talking to a painter about repainting just one of the swirls on each side a different color. Nothing crazy, maybe just a nice deep maroon or burgundy... something to give it a little kick without drawing too much attention.

I'll keep the swirls! I count at least 8 colors on ours.

I like the different designs. I was looking at some of the Prevost conversion companies websites (one can dream), and some of the paint schemes I saw were simply amazing.
