And another thing I liked about the tan, you dont have to worry about it "yellowing"!

Although, the white DOES look good. And, I have to admit I got a chuckle out of Floyd's comment.

Yellow?

Most colored things are driven to white by the UV component of Sun light.. Our Scamp 16 is 23 years old and I see no yellowing occurring. Now waxes can yellow, particularly the floor waxes.

Yessir. Yellowing. When I first bought my Scamp, it was snow white and matched my truck. But take a look at this pic at the difference in 4-1/2 yrs. I've tried to take care of it as best I can. If no one else's is doing this, I guess I'm doing something wrong. For what it's worth, I painted the freshwater inlet and slinky tube earlier this year. I used a "Biscuit" color from Lowes that matched perfectly. So technically...maybe at this point "off white" may be a more accurate color description.

But obviously, there's some others that call it "yellowing" as well.

Off white or cream looks good too, especially a clean and shiny one like yours. Sweet camper Darral.

Wax yellows. Just ask anyone that still waxes a kitchen floor. We're always searching for a wax product that states... non-yellowing. If your trailer is turning color, you may want to consider stripping all the wax off instead of just adding to it.

Well Greg, that was a breath of fresh air! Thanks.

Donna D. Then why shouldnt I be having to strip my truck too? Again, see the pic I posted as the truck has received the SAME wax for the past 4-1/2 yrs that the Scamp has. It's the Protect All wax that gets 5-star reviews for all it's uses- boats, RVs, and more..... Trust me, it's not "floor wax".

Mine is not the only gel cote camper "yellowing". Check the link I added earlier as it explains the natural occurrence that happens to the fiberglass/gelcote combination.

You wont see this with the cool-tanned Snoozy. (But the white looks the sharpest!)

Dunno. That's a puzzler you have there. If it were an older unit you had bought used, it could have been old wax buildup from the previous owner. But since it's only a 2010... very strange!

For those interested there are multiple pics of the new white Snoozy on the Snoozy website here: Photo Gallery: Family Vacation: Camper Uses: Smoakin Concepts Composites
Looks pretty darn good
I wonder if they will offer white entrance & cargo doors and exhaust fan lid as an option?

Donno.. unless it's a chemical reaction difference between what's NOT happening with paint but happens with gelcoat. I know wax yellows on vinyl and linoleum floors. Even the high priced paste wax.

But I do remember reading where folks are stripping off wax and chalk and are surprised how white their trailers look...
