Default 1990 Retro Rebuild

Never owned a camper in my life and just bought a1990 21ft in good shape. Was originally thinking of it for possible/temporary living space (super into tiny space living) but now think I may doll it up and see if I can make a little on her.
I found the photos page and have already learned much from cruising around on the site. However, I'm not seeing anyone doing much of anything regarding changing exterior color. Any particular reason?
Sorry pics are screenshots... Will be posting as I renovate.

Have fun with your project!

I suspect the reason you don't see too much variation in exterior colors (mostly shades of white) is that white is best to counter heat buildup inside the trailer. Since there is a great deal of open space inside a trailer and there is very little insulation, the Air Conditioner has to work almost full time if you are camped in a hot, sunny location. A dark color would just make the problem worse.

But, you could paint the outside ANY color that suits your fancy.
