Yup you guessed it "why are motorhomes white?"

I was In malham the other week and next to the main car park there was a large camper caravan meet , It looked like somone had dumped a load of fridge freezers/washing machines in a field
Just a thought ;)

Because if they were yellow you wouldn't be able to find them in a bowl of custard?

Yes, I have seen that one somewhere.
But there are more vans now coming in various cab colours.

to be honest most camper/motorhomes are white to reflect the heat away of the sun (when we get some ) years ago most windows and glass roofs in factorys were painted white as GREEN HOUSE in gardens are in summer.:eek: :eek: :eek:
