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.

A Pic is real Helpful,there are several pieces by the Bedroom door,some are Plastic,some are Aluminum,some are coated sheet metal! You say a Scratch,will this have to be Repaired/Filled befoe Paint? All lower body parts can be Removed/Replaced. Sidewall damage is a Back to Factory Job! Paint match is the easy part,repair is the more involved part! Youroo!!

No, unfortunately. The reason is not all cameras, printers, and PC's are equally capable of showing an exact color. And just being a couple shades off can be very obvious...

When we had our "W" full body paint touched up under warranty the body shop still used a spectrophotometer even though I had the OEM paint codes.

Look up an automotive paint supply like Sherwin Williams Automotive Paints. Give them the paint code and they can put it in a spray can for you for about $30

If all you want is to match the color for repair any good auto paint supply house can custom mix you an aerosol can to make the repair.
