I have looked through all the original literature and books which came with this RV when it was new. BUT, I cannot find out where the paint codes are!!! Can anyone tell me where I might find them???? Many, many thanks.
PS: Ooops....it is a 2004 Tropical. As you probably know my answer won't be coming from National!!!!

Welcome to IRV2 Robert. I got my paint codes from Fleetwood. Without knowing what you have, it is hard to tell where to go.

If they are anywhere, they are probably on a sticker on the wall in some closet. However, I don't recall that National puts them in the coach at all.

We had a 2002 Dolphin LX and needed replacement decals (no paint on that year) and called the factory. They kept sending us the wrong color decals, all the time insisting they were right because the factory build records said that was the color scheme we had. There was nothing actually recorded on our coach to show them their records were wrong.

In short, you may be out of luck if you just want to get some touch up paint. However, a good RV paint shop will have resources you do not and can probably match the paint if you are getting body work done. Unfortunately the original has faded a bit by now and won't match perfectly anyway.

Mine we not where they were supposed to be but I was luck to get one the service guys at NRV to send them to be before the closure.
Try our Yahoo group at http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/NationalRV/
and see if anyone has them. Be sure to give as much info about your coach as you can.
Year, model, and color scheme as best as possible. Post a picture in the files section for the couple of ex-NRV'ers that hang around the site. Their names are Matt and Norberto. Those two guys know about everything there is to know about NRV and are very willing to help it they don't have to play 20 questions to understand yours.

My paint codes are on a sheet attached to the side of the upper front left cabinet next to the TV.

My sincere thanks to all of you who took the trouble to reply. I will go off and hunt for them again, but I think I will wind kup having to get the paint eyeballed at my body shop. Thanks again and Happy RVing!!!

I found the paint codes for my Pacifica in the forward cabinet above the drivers seat. Be careful with matching. The three colors for the Sedona Pacifica surprised the heck out of me.
Reddish color is Redfire from GM
Dark color (almost black) is Expresso from Saab
Gold color (forgot the name) is from Toyota
Truly an International color scheme!
