Any chance you can put the color of blue used in the iRV2 where the teal is??

This project should keep you busy for awhile.

OK - Did some minor adjusting using a couple of suggestions. One is the dark blue on the upper and the other has no upper color and I softened the white to a cream and used a red and gray stripes. Actually, I'm starting to like the no upper color thing.

I started doing a more modern layout with big swooshy sections and I just didn't like it at all. Maybe I can get the Newmar designers to whip something up for me - no charge, of course!






As for how much this project is going to cost me . . . guess I better think about that one!
Right now it isn't costing me a dime and having a blast with it!

Right now I'm going through the brakes and new sway bar bushings.



OK! OK! I know I'm grabbing the wipers in this picture. Just adjusting the park-to-center point. Motorhomes are such FUN. Always something to work on.

I agree with you and others. Looks alot better with no upper color.

It currently looks pink with a couple of stripes on my computer. I'm hoping that is just a clich.

I like the no upper color. It looks pink, not cream, though on my laptop, too.

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

As a blue fan, I like the latest richer blue version, but the white top one below it looks good too.

I think the upper color gives it great balance. As for the color tint that's personal taste but I like the graphics and the balance of three colors.

I think Nick is a fan of the color pink! Naaaa, just fooling Nick, I like the scheme without the top color much better than the previous version, doesn't look so much like an Amtrack with it!

I like both versions (less the pink), but prefer the dark blue upper. Definite progress!

There goes my color-blindness again!
My wife confirms - it is pinkish. Should be just cream. Guess I used too much red in the color wheel blend.
I understand only REAL men are not embarrassed by the color pink.

Hey, JohnRR - I like that coach paint work. Similar, but definitely more pizzazz! Thanks for the link.

We get a lot of compliments on our Bounder colors. It's a 4-color combination, but, really, if the top was the same lt. grey color as the bottom, it would look good, too, as just a 3-color combo.

I like the blue top. It is good looking and is "unique". I like unique (if it looks good). The other looks very nice too, but looks more like a "standard" scheme. Can't go wrong with either though. If I saw either coming down the road I would be gawkin'

OK, just to cause some confusion to those who are just now going through this thread - I fixed the "cream" color of the picture on page 1. It was definitely "pinkish" due to my eye not being sensitive to reds. I thought it was a "warm cream".

Anyway, I found a good color chart giving the "computer codes" (the HEX RGB numbers for those nerds like me) of a bunch of colors and chose "bone white" as the closest match. It is kinda overly yellow but "ivory" wasn't yellow enough.

I'm definitely going to play with this some more!

Hey Lori - I'm likin' the Bounder too.
