Safari Touch-up paint

We have a 2001 Safari Serengeti, that was made by Safari.
We have tried several places to get some touch-up paint for our coach for some small scratches.
It does have three colors.
We had went to Monaco for help to no avail and also went to several dealers that were no help at all.
Was just trying to find out were we could get some touch-up paint.
Maybe we could get some help here.

If your frig vent has all three colors like mine just take it to a place that matches automotive paint and have them mix the colors for you. I can't take credit for this because the original ideal came from Diplomat Don.

The roof vent colors could possibly be faded from the sun. If you can take the coach to a good paint dealer they usually have a hand held color computer to sample the colors that are on the body of the coach.

I believe that the original poster "SAFARI" stated that his coach had some scratches. He did not mention any roof vent. The next post was from another Safari owner who suggested using the roof vent as a possible source for the colors.

For clarification, the reference was to the "frig vent" by which the poster meant the painted cover on the outside wall of the motorhome where the vent louvers for the refridgerator are located. This cover is removable and often provides a source to measure all colors painted on the side of the coach.
