Maybe, but, all the new coaches I'm seeing on lots have a majority of swirl paint schemes in all dark colors. So, we're dealing with an almost apples to apples comparison. Right now, dark is chic...

They're all going to suck the heat.

If I had mine painted, I would have Miley Cyrus design it. :Hide:

La-Z-Boy,
Thanks, I predicted in my mind that you would come back with just that exact response. You have all you need to ride in comfort and that's just fine. However there are those who don't have 18" guns lined up on both sides of the ship and can't keep the heat demons away from their dark colored rigs in the heat of summer. That was the only reason for mentioning the use of dark heat absorbing colors.

I think I prefer the swirls much more than mountain scenes, cougars, rams, bears, covered bridges of the 5th wheel and trailer rv's.

Every time I see a custom paint job my wallet palpitates.
My swirling FBP is nifty enough. ;-)

How about some Deco themes, or SOMETHING creative and different!!

I guess the lack of creativity in paint shemes or themes is too risky for sales.

Swirls....ughhhhh!!
After 3 pages of postings, I have a question: Did you start this thread due to you are wanting to upgrade.......and nothing appeals to you as far as the modern paint jobs? If you were going to order a new Coach.....how would you have it painted up?(if you could) Explain if you would please

A full swirly swirl paint job IS a custom paint job. The layers, multiple colors, masking and all that entails takes a LOT of man hours.

I think the offerings should be more than who can out swirly swirl the other. Two, three or four tone pattern paint work in colors other than black,brown, grey should be offered. Seems to me the pallet is very small.

Rumor has it

The RV industry has been secretly trying new paint ideas to introduce in the up and coming years. This photo was captured at a recent testing site.

I could not agree more ! The two tone, that Jeff Posted looks awesome, clean and sleek. These designs today look like a package wrapped with ribbons rolling down the road IMHO !

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Well I posted an unusual and unique MH under 'Check the paint on this' but no replies, maybe it would be more to your taste, I quite like it!

It is truly one of a kind...

"Give them any color they want as long as it is black" Henry Ford.

I think more cars should have swirly swirls, instead of just plain paint jobs.
