Lets face it. These are big units. Like someone said, "It's like driving a barn." If they were all one color I don't think they would look very pleasing to very many people. A two tone rig? I just don't think so. So it was a natural progression to go with lines to break up the colors. My Dad had a 1958 Buick that was very nice for its time. It was white on the top, blue on the bottom with a chrome strip running down the sides which followed the lines of the car. Inside that chrome strip it was painted red. We thought it looked cool.

Well our rigs don't really have contour lines or anything stylish at all. They are just one big long tall rectangular box. So it becomes necessary to draw lines that simulate forms, curves, or style of some sort. That's what it has evolved into and now they are experimenting with the darker colors with browns and blacks etc.

I grew up in the 50's and 60's and to this day I still have seen very few flame designs on hot rods that I thought looked cool. I just don't like the painted flame schemes.

I love my "two-tone" rig...
In fact, I remember the guy that repainted it commenting on, "covering up the 'grandpa-stripes' "

Less is More !!!!!!!! That looks great, elegant, sophisticated and clean.

The swirls have gotten ridiculous these days. It's almost like they are just trying to draw a buyer's eye to them on the lot. Maybe next they will light up ad blink... Our old bounder is decent; two tone with an accent stripe.

I guess those of us that find the abundance of swirls unsightly and garish are in the minority though or you wouldn't think they wouldn't be so prevalent.

To each his own. Lets see how many times have I read about black MH's being so much hotter, more difficult to keep cool etc. especially if you spend much time in the southern areas of our country. You know the warmer part of the country where the snow birds migrate to when the snow flies up in the north country.

Well... Since you put it that way,
With 4 - 15,000 BTU A/C's with heat pumps, and Hydro-Hot taking care of 411 sq/ft... Comfortable interior temperatures are never an issue. We live in the "south" and travel from Myrtle Beach to Las Vegas and all points below, all year round. Can't remember the last time we used the dash air...
(Every vehicle I own and my boat is black/chrome or stainless)
Was just offering a two-tone look to the thread, nothing more
Jus sayin'

You could aways go with flames down the side. Lol I think Brett Michaels did that on his pimp my RV. Oh wait it was called rock my RV. He also painted or decaled a 50s caddy on the side of one RV.
Personally I like the black one above. Nicer looking rig.

After a sufficient amount of the Charles Shaw Blend, they all have swirls! Even the stark white ones.

If you look real close... I actually have black with swirls. LOL
Although, I work my tail off to try to hide them. Black is beautiful when clean, but only takes about 30 minutes to change that. Or a light shower...

Sounds like we are ordering ice cream cones.

"I'll have two scoops licorice with coffee on the bottom please."

"Would you like some swirls with that?"

"No thank you, just plain".

IF we ever had the extra money to paint or get a new one with our own paint job it would be Steam Punk designed. Yep not many would want to buy it if we decided to sell but then I doubt we would selling the one that we've designed for ourselves. The inside would be designed to hold musical instruments to be in easy reach along with all the other hobbies that we have. Easy to put away yet easy to pull out to do.
