Peculiar RV Paint Job

I could get used to it. Want to keep a security light on so as no to run into it.

Maybe this one parked across from you change your mind on that one. Talked to this owner. Really great guy. RV's kinda like people--the outside cover means very little!!

I kinda like the black one. Perhaps next time keep the lines straight and symmetrical

No, I don't think I'll do this particular scheme on mine. :-) but I am planning on painting mine this summer.

Another view. If this rig got stolen, I think a lot of people could give info as to which way it went since everyone would be looking at it because it is different. Would be hard to get away with this one.

As long as it is kept clean along with the CG area who cares. Wonder what the inside looks like? Bet it would be hot out in the desert though.

I have to ask,.....would someone really steal a coach that looks like this?

At a RV resort I had to put up with a old orange dodge van with a peace sign on front, side and back. They had a horrible tent they put up that wasn't supposed to be allowed. Lucky they only stayed two weeks. Next year I told the office I wanted a different location.

dieselclacker,


I've seen Goth coaches before and though I did not like them for myself, someone spent a lot of time and money turning it into Goth. Course I wouldn't own an all white coach but I see those a lot too.


I agree this won't be what most people would want but at least it is clean, well kept, and interesting.

I think they just killed any resale value that RV might have had.

I agree but I think Uncle Si of the Duck call show would fight for the camoflauge one!

Since the picture was posted with an assumed purpose of soliciting comments, I think it the paint job is a welcome change from the endless swoops and swirls seen on newer RV's today. But I don't think there is any choice. If you buy anything made in the last 10(?) years, you get swoops and swirls and lots of people may like these.

Since I am not making the payments on the rig I don't care how it is painted.I did remodeling in my working days and the guy or girl that wrote the check was always right.

Something to be said about this .... would certainly make the "story" more interesting as to how it all came about ........

I wonder about the effect it has on keeping the interior cool in hot weather, but it's his money to spend any way he chooses.
