Talking Type of paint forest river uses

Hi, I'm thinking of buying a sunseeker and I'm thinking about getting the full body paint. Anyone here know what type of paint they use. Is it like the one they use for automobiles? Thanks

Similar but different. It is automotive paint but it is not a base coat/clear coat like on a car. As far as I know the paint is done by a separate company not Forest River themselves. I was very highly impressed with the quality of the full body paint on our Georgetown. They actually did fades which I didn't expect. You can see how one color fades into another, it's kinda cool.

FR sends the units out to Performance Painting Systems just down the street from the factory in Elkhart Indiana. Here's a link to their website.
