Paint color code

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask but I am in need of a paint color code or paint so I can get my one storage door painted the color it's supposed to be - or if I can just buy a replacement door already painted ? Here's a pic of it - it is a 2012 forester 3171 ds - is there a number at forest river for this ? Thanks

Not sure the code, but did you look inside your cabinets? I have a Sunseeker 3170DS i recall seeing codes somewhere. I think it was in the cabinet over the sink. Either stuck on the inside of the door or cabinet wall.

We have a 2014 3171- I think I remember seeing it on the drivers door frame. It's a Mercedes color...

Any automotive paint supply that sells paint to auto body repair shops can scan your color and mix up paint to match. Just take a part that is painted (maybe another storage door or whatever is easily removed) to them and they can scan it. Check with a auto body shop and ask where they get their paint or look online for automotive paint stores.

The paint codes in our 3171 are in the cabinet above the sink, posted on the back wall.

Thank you for the replies - I talked to forest river today and the code is in the driver door - since the coach is white the only color paint is the skirt paint and the code is on the drivers door

Wish mine was. Not to be found anywhere. My painter friend at the shop next to mine said not to worry, he can scan it and match if needed. I have 4 colors on mine

There were no codes on our 3171, but FR was able to give me the paint codes when I gave them the VIN. However, when I do an Internet search with the codes they gave me, I come up empty. I need to get some touch up paint because some of the paint came off the edge of the door where the exterior TV is located. Any idea where I can buy touch up paint?

Yes - look on Amazon - I ordered a spray paint can but you can also order the little touch up markers - my color was sikkens 382e

Thanks. I found all but one on Amazon. Unfortunately, I still haven't found the one I need.
