Smile Vote, Black or White Seam Trim on CT13

Just thought I would ask what you think looks best on a cream colored CT13 with a black bumper. My thoughts are Black. What do you think?
Am getting ready to order next month. I know this may sound vain but I care what the trailer and camping space looks like. Am also going to paint the little moon hubcaps in their center, Orange. HA! So much fun...

I just replaced my seam cover and used a very white piece. I think it clashes a bit with the cream color of the rest of the trailer, so maybe black would be better if you can't find an off white piece.

I think the advantage of the white tream is that it can be more easily painted any color.

If you can't get a color that "disappears," make it obvious is my style. I'm with Jen... black (actually I'd vote red but that wasn't a choice )

Black.

It is fun, isn't it? We added blue trim to our Uhaul, because our VW pickup is blue. Someday, we hope that we can show the two together.

It would clash with the Orange hubcaps!

My High School colors (and my marching band uniform) were Orange and Blue.

I vote BLUE.

I like black.

Are you aware that they also make Red, Blue, Green and maybe yellow?
A red belly band with red wheels and white or silver hubcaps might look good too.

But-but-but-but - there aren't any other choices? I am a big fan of that Chromacolor paint that changes color depending on your angle of view.

However - lets see

If we go with green, we risk offending about half the Irish folks, while orange may offend the others. Blue will offend a bunch of folks of one US political persuasion, and Red will offend the rest. White risks charges of racism. Black is just too trite!

Can you do it silver? There are chrome colors that can be applied!

I say if there isn't any pink choice, go with black.
