If you guys had ever been in the Wanderlodge fabric and interior planning dept you would know why they had the colors they had!
When you went in to order your new coach you had to pick the colors and styles for the walls,the couches,the seats,everything!
I guess you guys have been shopping with your wife before? Just to buy ONE new couch?
How would you like to go shopping to decorate an entire bus?
Inside and out?
Books and books and books of color swatchs (or whatever they are called).
Carpet samples,flooring samples,tile samples,paint schemes,paint colors,(just kill me now!)
After a while every color ran together,the lighting in that area was horrible,the husband was thinking "just pick whatever color you want".
And thats why so many turned out PINK!
I think the pink swatches looked brown myself!!
"Oh honey,look at this nice brown"! and $700,000 later you find out it was not brown,but PINK!

As is my normal MO with vehicles. This one is going to be more like a company furnished apartment but I have a host of them to choose from, but as soon as I choose I gotta move in and start working.
I don't want it to be like when Elwood brings Jake home to his apartment and the Ell goes by shaking everything off the walls. Jake asks "How often does the train go by?" Elwood replies "So often you won't even notice it!".
I don't want to pick something with a feature I absolutely don't like, and then just have to tell myself everyday, "You'll get used to it". Remember unlike some who may only be around it and using it a couple weeks out of the year, we'll be "dealing" with it daily.

Speaking of toilets....what's the deal wiith microphor toilets? All my toilets have been gravity powered. What makes them so undesirable?

PS When you get up and running in your bus building plant, put me on your list! My specs won't be difficult at all, and I'll pay cash! You can even pick the fuel filler cap if it'll cut your costs and increase profit margins!

My business manager for the bus building factorys name is Helen Wait.
Everybody tells me to go to Helen Wait when i need something!!


Hey,i found the smileys!

Thanks for that Randy. I couludn't for the life of me figure out how SOOOO many people could decide that horrible shades of pink were the most desirable. My wife ordered me a coral shirt one time. It was the most putrid shade of pink ever devised. I didn't even get to try it on!

I can just hear an old guy sitting in that room for several days while his wife and the decorator are picking colors.
Under his breath he says "for the love of pete,why not just make it pink".
And thats how it happened,.....maybe!!
Trust me,i was never in that predicament!

It's more salmon/mauve than Miss Piggy. I like it. It's a 2019 color again, very modern!
I even had a pink sport jacket once, looked great with a magenta golf shirt.
