Swirly congers up childhood memories of idle threats involving ones head in a toliet. So the name alone doesn't seem appealing. But what yea gonna do? These rigs are big, and plain monotone paint isn't very exciting. Although the all black with minimal stripes etc looks good.
who knows what the next big fad will be but I agree the swirl has run its course. Everything seems to change in cycles of about 10 to 15 years for RVs so maybe back to basic plain sides but in color could be the new thing.

It seems all those that don't like swirls, don't have them and those that like them do. Its all about choice. I've had both and like the full paint and swirls much more, but to each their own. Just think this is a happier place without everything being just black or white. Thats just me.

I love the "swirly" paint, the "swirlier" the better.

Straight lines = less time and money.
Swirly lines and a lot of colors = lots of money and time........
As posted and the way I see it........This is just like "Burger King" , order it your way, as you are the only one that has to like it......

It's what ever floats your boat!! Even if the swirls aren't your thing, it's hard to deny that the work and craftsmanship involved in pulling off a multi color, multi pattern paint job are probably reflective of the mfg's dedication to a level of detail that probably flows thru to the rest of the coach. We have the swirls and like them, but what we really like is the view of America that we see when we look out of our front windshield, our paint job pales in comparison to the Tetons in Wyoming, the Columbia River valley in Oregon, A sunrise in Hilton Head, Orange Beach Alabama, Fire flies in Kentucky. Well, you get the picture, it's a lot more about what you see than it is about what you drive.

Labor intensive

Mikes custom paint in Indiana does a lot of repaints and also does paint for the manufactures. They have a great video on their web site of what's involed to doing these custom paint jobs. Not easy.

Now that is a good looking coach. I also like a white base with stainless steel cargo bays. My 5th wheel has swirls but I am not a big fan. I would like to find a Travel Supreme Select like Lay Z Boy's in white. Maybe this is why I am so attracted to many of the truck conversions.

I've wondered about this subject myself. It seems that the designers have gone wild. A little design on such expansive space as a MH makes it more appealing but it appears that there is an effort to outdo the next guy. Kinda dizzying to look at for some of the paint jobs. Simple and elegant are the key words that come to mind. At my age that is what I would prefer. If I was much younger, I might like all the action on the sides but I don't really think so. They sell a lot of them so somebody likes it. One of the reasons I bought our rig was because it was more plain than busy. I have had many folks comment about its appearance and I am happy with it.
