New Jayco colors issues?

We are considering purchasing a new Jayco. Unfortunately now everything has to be colored including the front cap. Do any of you have problems with it fading or the internal temperature of the unit? I read a couple peoples complaints but surprisingly there wasn't as many as I expected so I don't know if they are isolated incidents or there are just not many colored units on the road.

We have a trailer now and it's colored front cap is oxidized bad and I swore I'd never get another that isn't white. But I love Jaycos and that's all they offer. Also, we camp in Michigan and in the woods the vast majority of the time so I don't think internal temp would be a problem but it does hot here and we are primarily dry campers so A/C is not always available.

Thanks for your help.

We are very happy with our 2015. No issues with interior heat. AC keeps up with no problems. Too new to comment on any fading.

My son has a different brand with a dark front cap. When the sun shines on it you can feel the heat on the inside wall. He is constantly cleaning and waxing it to keep it from looking really old. Oxidation on a dark color really shows up. Hopefully this color craze will be over when we are ready for another trailer.
