I have the cherry cabinets in my '05 and need to touch up some nicks and match a piece of new wood.
Has anyone had any luck matching stains?
Thanks.

For our '04, we had gotten some stain from the factory, and it worked great to cover the nicks. However, you are a long way away from the factory, so I'm no help other than that.

Contact the company via e-mail. Make sure you include any pertainent info on your coach (including VIN number on the coach itself). you should be able to get a pint or quart of the stain. Other alternative is to hit the local hardware store (Lowes/Home Depot) with a small sample that has not been exposed much to the sun (like a door) and see if you can match it with any of the standard stains.

You can take one of the doors or drawer to a good cabinet shop and they should be able to match the stain by using it as a sample.

htg3 - If it is the natural cherry it has no stain and only turns dark as it is exposed to light.
