Default What color for boat trailer???

I am having my boat painted in Synergy Green (the same green as the limited edition Camaro's), and I need to do something with the Myco trailer under it. Should I keep it white? Should I paint it green? Should I paint it some other color that compliments or contrasts with the green?

Any opinions are appreciated.

White tends to make sure you see the trailer.
Black tends to make the trailer disappear and you see the boat.
Matching the boat, just takes it all to the next level.

Personally I would color match it to your boat. Most likely when you eventually sell the boat, the trailer will go with it and will look sharp with boat / trailer in matching colors. just my opinion and what I have done. Good luck whatever you decide.

Black with matching color accents or silver with matching accents.

A carbon fiber grey with green accents would look good too

Body color would be killer. Bling it out like the west coast trailer company Extreme and you would have a very eye-catching package. Cant wait to see it.

I will be coming up to Grand Rapids some time this summer to visit some friends that have a business similar to ours. I am hoping to find an excuse to drag the boat up there. I am pretty open as far as timing. If you catch wind of any evnts, please let me know.
