Meridian 40U paint selection

Good morning
We are ordering a 2013 Meridian 40U
We have owned several class A's but they have always been previously owned
We are finding the toughest decision to be selecting the paint colour scheme
What 2013 colour do the other owners like
We thought your opinions would help

Just a very general comment. Be very careful about a scheme with lots of dark colors. Dark colors in the summer direct sun, are very hard on the underlying fiberglass surface.

its your money you decide,i find if i ask for a concencous on something i still go ahead and do it my way, kinda reminds me of when we built our house i had created the plans on my computer (very simple small home) when i presented the plans to my builder he said he could build from them but really thought it would be wise to submit them to an archetech so we did, they cmae back with all the same dimensions only thing he added was an extra window on the walk out level the window looked in to the side of the garage which waas completely below level i guess what im saying after my long ramp is it it were me i pick my own colours
safe travels
Merry Christmas

Is there a Journey color you like better?
Same coach, different name.

The brochure pics dont do them justice. google search 40U's to get a better look at actual coaches.

I suggest the dark colors look fantastic when clean, beyond that they have little value. They are hard to keep clean. The wax or other coatings put on to make it look great will always need to be done in the shade, otherwise you will see every streak in it. If you do not have time to wipe it down you will see every waterspot. The dark colors absorb heat, light reflects.
My vote goes toward minimum Black, dark Browns, or Dark Blue. I went for silvers, light grays, and tan. I just wipe the lower panels with a damp rag at the campgrounds and wash the bugs off the front during most of our trips, then wash after our return. Some of our trips are for weeks at a time.
