    For years now all MH`s seem to be coloured the same old white--
    something to do with keeping heat out in summer.

    In a meet up ,it`s a sea of white:Eek!:

    I notice that RV`s usually have a colour scheme why not a MH.

    If you had a choice, what colour would you like yours to be?

    Some RVs I've seen that have been "full paint" have looked terrible at just 4 years old, chips, flakes, ugly scratches. Though I should say the more expensive ones have the paint covered with a very hard clear finish which looks exceptionally durable. Our regular white sided vans stay nicer looking for longer.

    My Autosleeper is deep red. Original colour. Makes a change and easy to find on site after a boozy night.

    I am thinking of changing the colour scheme on my older Autotrail--
    It won`t cost me anything, it`s my job -- just got to decide what to go for.
    Too late once it`s sprayed and i don`t like it :Eeek:----Decisions---:cry:

    One of the reasons we liked the style of our van was that it wasn't the ubiquitous white!:thumb:

    Do it sypathetically if you do spray it ....

    Think I would be a bit put off if I was looking for a change of van, and the one I was viewing had been painted out of the norm... :Smile:

    Just my opinion... :Wink:

    One of the reasons we chose the 'neutral' colour was so that we would be less 'stand out' when wild camping :Wink:

    I like black, but it gets dirty quickly. Strangely enough I think white can stay 'clean' longer :Eek!:

    There was some wildlife bloke with an OBE on the recent caravanfinder TV programme. He had a bailey caravan (I think) that was made green at his request - that would blend in when wild camping. But I suspect many would think you carve wooden toadstools to pay for your cannabis :Rofl1:

    I don't like the bright dazzling white used by some of the European manufacturers as this seems to attract lots of those little flies.

    Regular white with subtle decals for me :thumb:
