So how did the scratch get there? Was it there when you bought it? If so take it back for warranty and get it replaced. Later RJD

Your best bet would be to call Forest River and ask them. Your dealer may know, but Forest River WILL know.

If you can provide a auto motive paint store with a chip they can match the color. Later RJD

Any really good body shop can match just about any color. They will use a Spectrophotometer to match the existing paint to what they will custom mix. I've had 50 year old classic cars touched up using this technology and I can't see the difference. New paint should be really easy for them to match up.
