2022 Wildwood 32bhds

Our new unit has finally arrived and we are excited to start some modifications to make it "ours."

Our question...Does anyone have a suggested stain color that would match the factory woodwork? We plan on using pine wood to create a couple upgrades. We have tried "Minwax - Aged Barrel" and also "Minwax - Ebony" Both are very wrong.

I am hoping someone on here has this unit or one similar and can give what they used.

Thanks in advance for your time in reading this and your help/suggestions.

You may not be able to match it 100% even if you used the same exact stain. Differnt types of wood will be differnt shades / colors with the same stain.

Best bet is to get a piece of the wood you are using and buy several small samples of stains and do little test patches to find the closest one.

X2 it may also require you to combine a couple of stains to get the correct match, also give the stains some time to set the color may change slightly

The factory woodwork is all veneered. It is not stained wood. Pine will have a yellow tint to it that also makes it not look the same color as a white wood will when stained.
