Picking out new color for Pacer!

Oh, boy, here we go---got a call today from man working on my camper that he has the windows out and other outside stuff off, it is being sanded and time to come in a pick out a color! Can't believe this is happening!

Want to make it look "stunning" with my black Ridgeline. Ah, anything should go with black, right??? Obviously not the "off -white with brown markings" that are on it now---just doesn't look right. BUT I want to keep with the "Coffee Shop" theme which (of course) is browns! So I'm looking at colors that tie black/brown/tan/rust/blue together.

I've seen some sharp looking Fords that are black on the top with a strip of gold along the bottom---I could do that--but switch it (gold on top). Or a deep orangey rust would be sweet. I could worry about resale value--but just ain't going there! My husband thought yellow would be cool with black accents, but changed his mind.

HMMMMMM----to be continued----------------

I say, just keep the lighter color on the top. Hot sun ya know. And remember dark colors are harder to keep clean than lighter colors. Of course you'll find that out with your black tug. Personally, I'd go all white with black graphics and call it "black coffee." But obviously, you're not me

On edit... you are getting pictures, right?

Great thought Donna---"black coffee with cream please!"

Don't worry, you guys will be the first to see pics! And I'll definitely stay away from the dark colors (on top) at least!

How about black graphics and call it "shot in the dark".

Hey, Vickie-we are going camping in Oklahoma this weekend-so may not check the site until Sunday eve when we get home.
I have no ideas-I can`t even decide what color or striping to put on our camper.
I do like the yellow choice-but that has nothing to do with coffee.
Good luck!
Can`t wait to see it.

How about a Black Russian. You can make it white and black plus it will go with your car.
