Has anyone that thinks they have to match consider the possibility of a color wrap? The wildly decorated vehicles with corporate advertising are sometimes custom printed wraps over a base white vehicle. The 3M site says they can match any color. I sure it costs a couple of bucks but when one owns a dependable vehicle it is hard to let them go.

The one I saw the other day certainly would have, at least to my taste. I am sure the owner was proud of it. You know, different strokes for different folks. People think I am crazy for owning a motorhome.

Not even close. Silver/green MH and burgandy suburban toad. Our suburban used to be our tow vehicle for our TT and it matched beautifully -the TT was and eagle with red/white/blue. I would love a "matching" toad....next time!

How do you like that Soul? I think only the manual trannys are towable.

Ours does but only by accident , or was it???? We found a 2015 Storm and I was about to make a deal when the DW says she doesn't like the colors. It was painted in some bolder colors and I thought it looked great but too in your face for her taste. She liked the more subtle colors of the Storm we ended up purchasing, in the picture.

We were about to leave to pick it up last November when it hit me that her CRV color matched pretty closely to one of the colors on the Storm.

Very slightly, we bought the gold van in Dec 2004 and it now matches the " stripes between the major colors on the MH that we bought last year, sort of.

That's the color (light gold) of CR-V that I was hoping to get, but that color was not offered in 2014, at least not in Canada. I had to buy a used 2014 CR-V because that is the last year that is towable.

We've got some black in the coach paint scheme ... and an all black jeep. It doesn't clash ... but certainly doesn't strike me as "color coordinated". I rarely see the toad back there .. so I'm OK with the colors.

Thankfully no. I don't need a scratched up faded blue Motorhome with a dented fender to match my 20 yr old Jeep TJ. But I also wouldn't trade my Jeep for anything.

Our first toad was a match. But when we totaled it I wasn't as picky with the color as with the make & model. Both were/are Honda Odysseys. If I want something to match I guess I could get a trailer for my '88 Mustang ASC McLaren ...no tow bar going on this one!
