Well, it's odd looking. Wonder why they did that?

Don't want nobody stealing it. Used to deface dingy's in the Caribbean so they wouldn't get stole. Who would want to steal that thing.

Newmar should buy it back and make sure it never sees the light of day again, ever.

Can't say that I care for it but it would have some tangibles. The light color would reduce the sun's heating and you would only need one color touch up paint.

The mono color sure does point out the lack of windows but upon reflection our coach has the same window layout on the passenger side.

It's certainly not flashy. Almost looks like a government owned unit.... kinda like those black Suburbans

I heard a lot of cost is in the paint - maybe they took a reverse option?

They did that to practically new factory paint? I wouldn't want any part of that RV as the owners might be nuts, lol.
