Mine is Deep Cherry. The girlfriends words "thank god you didn't get refrigerator white!" However, the Inside turns to a black hole as soon as the day light dims. Lighter color would make things easier to see back there. If you are building it out, add insulation and make the inside whatever color suits you. Problems solved.

Color was also way down on my list or requirements.

2015 3500 gas. High roof extended, RV-ish package. They do exist!

Actually, it is virtually impossible, particularly for a DIY, to cover all interior metal surfaces. Therefore, you should make sure the van color is compatible with what you want the interior to be.

Silver. I live off a gravel road which kicks up quite a bit of dust. Almost fruitless to wash our vehicles... They look dirty after 2 hours. Silver disguises the dirt quite well. The plastic nose and exterior trim bits contrasts the body color nicely. Living in the country I actually appreciate Ram's penny pinching strategy of not painting the grill... No pock marks from gravel or paint blemishes from insect juice. I once but bumped into a snow bank that was a bit more frozen than I thought... No damage to the front.

I went with black, grease and oil are black and i'm usually covered in one or the other so it seemed like the best option.. Lol, now the interior with the factory two little lights that only stay on for 5 min is a totally different story.. I can't see my hand in front of my face at night in the back when they dim out. Improvements to come...

Another silver owner. Think it looks great with all the black and red trim, will look better with black running boards (ordered by the way, but went a different direction-chose the hard industrial diamond patterned steel with far less chance of slips compared to the solid and/or plastic coated models).
Silver seemed to me a good compromise between Sun/heat and avoiding appliance white.

After three white trucks in a row, I chose a Graphite Promaster. I constantly get people coming up to my truck telling me how cool it looks, they've "never seen one of these before". Meanwhile, there's a white Promaster in the same parking lot.

Seeing the two silvers together got me wondering.
Is there any vehicle a PM 1500 can tow?
Just curious. Only thing we'll tow is a Malone kayak trailer and I'm hoping to get to U-haul later
this week for that (the hitch).

If you want to get an idea, go to U-Hauls web site and select which model you have (low roof, high roof, wheelbase, etc. ) and then which vehicle you want to pull. They tend to be a little conservative but I just checked and it says a low roof 1500 136 wheelbase can tow a new Honda Civic on a 4 wheel dolly. If you used a two wheel dolly you could pull a larger car.

I thought all Promasters, regardless of model and trim, had the same 5,100 pound tow rating?
