Wood Stain

Anybody had success matching the wood stain in the late model CC / SB? I hadn't tried on this one, but didn't have much luck with our previous MH. Maybe just the paint shops around us aren't that great. I have always complained to manf about having this available to purchase. Tiffin does since they mix it, but, they build all of their own stuff. I'm guessing CC subs it out to one of the many cabinet builders, thus making it nearly impossible to order any from CC. It wasn't long ago somebody posted a picture where they had practically a perfect match in a CC. Tried sending a pm to purchase the left over but no replies.

Anybody have any, or had success getting some from CC? This is he only thing stopping me from a long list of fixes and upgrades. Complete new bed framing, some crown molding, and replacing the sliding bath door with a hinged one that I'll build, just to name a few.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

BigJohnD,

I had a cabinet door get ripped off by a slideout(don't ask). It tore the hinge out of the door and gouged a place on the corner nearest the hinge. Had a few scratches as well in a couple places. I had some leftover stain from a project I was doing on the S/B home. It was a little lighter color than what I needed but I kept adding coats to it and it finally blended in. I can't say that the wood is "real" wood but it took the stain and if you didn't know what I worked on, you'd never be able to notice.
Hope I helped you some.

I'll be going back with maple or birch. I have had numerous custom mixes that just don't cut it. I'll be gutting a lot of the wrapped mdf junk they put in these things. The cabinet doors and some slide fascia are about the only solid wood in this thing.

Need understood using it other than economics. Crap it's heavier than real wood, yet used in all campers attempting to "save weight".

IF I ever get to go on a factory tour, that will be one of my first questions!

The 2nd will be why don't they use quality faucets and better tires?

The costs can't be that much more and the customer will be more satisfied.

The closet rod fell on the last trip and upon inspection, they used 2 screws that couldn't have been 1/8" into the pood! Give me a break!

Youroo has inspired me with a new word, pood. Which, includes the word "poo", which is pretty much what it is.

Mfg. (Wood?) products are stable to use in (Mass Mfg),as long as it does (Not) get WET! That and price are the only reason. Youroo!!

Matching Problems????

Re our CC29RE...Tech opened our slid when we arrived to have another item fixed and tore lower cupboard door off hinge.....New door ordered and when it came it did not matck....Cherry???? The difference was night and day.....Dealer said they would order a matched pair......

Re matching stain...trail and error you can mix up some Min Wax stain. We have a company here that deals with antique furniture etc and they have perfectly matched stains for me.....Also every piece of wood has a different grain !!!!!!! Good luck!!!! J
