Surveyor Cadet Interior Color Tuscany

I have a 2014 Surveyor Cadet SCT226 the interior color is Tuscany. I have removed my U shaped dinette so I could replace it with two recliners and I am in need of some moulding (trim). I found some pine moulding that will work for what I need but I need to stain it to match the existing wood work. Does anyone know what color the wood work is or how I go about figuring out what color it is?

Thanks,

Jonathan

My Dad always had a brochure in his shop that showed the available shades for the brand of stain he used.

Ok so I called Forest River today to find out the color of interior wood trim and they said it was spring maple. Now I just need to figure out which stain matches that. If anyone knows please reply.

Thanks,
Jonathan

Forest river may have some trim tape or 1/8 inch paneling matching the color you need. I know that may sound mickey mouse but that is how our trailer cabinets are made. Other folks have told me they have had good response from forest river for these items. Although I have not had good contacts with them (they think they still own my trailer). I would still try that contact.
Going beyond forest river means your local hardware / lumber store for color stain charts. sometimes I buy a couple of small cans of stain and mix and match and test to get what I want. Remember that using solid wood varies in how it takes the stain by how it is stained, sealed or even what type of wood you use.

Wood Stain Matchup

dont tread on me thanks for the reply

I talked to Forest River about buying the trim from them but, the problem that I am having is the carpet on my slide out did not go to the wall of the slide out on either side under the dinette and one side has a big hole and a wire that needs to be hidden (see picture). So that being said I need a trim piece that is at 15/16" wide to cover this up so I am going to have to make the trim piece and stain it to match. I looked at stain yesterday at Lowes and the funny thing was that there were several colors that were close. The brand was Minwax and the colors where Gunstock and cherry which were penetrating stains, Antique Maple was a gel stain and Vermont Maple was a water based stain. I am going to match up the piece of vinyl wrapped wood piece of trim that I have at Lowes tomorrow and then buy two stains and experiment and see if I can get a match.

Jonathan,
Will be watching your posts. We have the same TT and are considering doing the same, but have not yet started. What type of wood will you be using cause that will affect the stain results. Also what recliners are you looking at to buy?

Dick

perhaps you can better match the wall color(maybe find wall paper to go on the wood or paint it a color that closely resembles the wall trim, or look at Places that sell mobile homes or doublewides for trim work to match the wall paper in the wall or at Lowes or home depot

Dick,

The chairs that we went with are attached bought them at Kmart for $179.99. Item # 021W008432635001P Model # L26173. They just barely fit through the door assembled. They only came in black we want to get something in a dark brown but black should still look good I think. I am going to use Pine as the wood for the trim and ended up just getting one stain today. The color I went with was Cherry. It is a oil based Minwax Stain. The stained samples in the store were pine and it is a pretty close match.

The dinette came out pretty easy just make sure you use a screw gun or something there were a lot of screws.

Thank You for the reply ValMelton

I did think about the mobile home store and there was one close to me but I could never get there before they closed during the week. I went with a cherry stain from Minwax. I am going to work on the project this weekend so I will know on tomorrow if my choice of stain was the right one.

I made a decision on the stain colors I ended up going with two colors. I stained the baseboards a color close to the fake wood flooring in my trailer and I used another color that is very close to the wood trim color. I hope to have completed pictures of the project this week. The trim with the oak leaves is what I purchased for the vertical edge on the side of the slide out. The second picture is the stains I picked and the trim piece on top is the color of the wood trim in my trailer. The last picture is the baseboards fitted in place they cover the gap in the carpet perfectly.
