Paint codes

I own a 2017 Forest River Cherokee 264ck. I have searched the entire tt for the exterior paint codes with no luck. Called Forest River and our RV dealer . No luck with either one. Removed cracked and peeling decals and in trying to remove glue residue , paint was removed on some panels. Help! Colors on exterior are a beige, and either brown or grey. Hard to tell color. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

On my coach FR they are located on sticker in one of the cabinets. That is of course motorhome, might be different for travel trailer. Send pick, year model, etc to FR. If they cant come up with the answer, then they are worse than what I think

They may also need the last eight digits of your VIN number. Prime Time (another division of Forest River) needed mine to provide the laminate information so I could order a new table top to replace the one damaged by the previous owner. I had the information by email within a couple of business days once I provided the VIN number.

Speaking from my experience, take the RV to a "good" automotive paint store, providing you can find a large enough parking space. A quality paint store will have the portable hand held scanner unit to read a paint color. They then download the scan to a computer which will read the color and provide a paint code. This process has the benefit of reading the current color if it has faded. The cost was a $20.00 tip from me and they resisted taking it! They scanned five colors for me and the subsequent paint job matched exactly to the existing colors. Call or better yet, visit the paint store before you take the unit to them. "Courtesy" in asking for their cooperation will generally go a long way!!!

Giving up on the paint codes. Going to see if we can get a replacement decal for that area. Any suggestions as to where I can get it?
