Coach painters of Berkshires

Does anyone know who paints the Berkshires for Forest River? The label from my coach says Elkhart County Graphics but when I call the number I found for them I get a message saying that it is no longer in service.

I am trying to contact them to see if they still use the same colors today that were used on my '08 so that I can try and get some touch up paint from them.

Thanks.

When I scratched the bay door last fall, I just phoned the factory and they faxed me the paint codes when I supplied them with the VIN #.

If you have a Berkshire brochure or pull it up online, you will find the number.

I have the paint codes but they don't seem to be 'standard' colors. When I called around locally, I was told that they needed to be specially mixed and that there was a minumum amount that they would make. I thought that if the same colors are used today, they would be able to send me some touch up paint.

I also have a 2008 and I called Mitch at FR, gave him the vin# and he gave me all the paint numbers.... I then took those to a really good auto paint dealer here in town and he mixed perfect matches for me.... Wasn't cheap but had to have it...

You should also be able to go to the auto body paint store and they can put it in a spray can for you too.
