Newmar can give you the paint code ,then you can go to a local auto paint supplier and have them mix some up. They can do spray cans too.

Should be a paint code inside the kitchen cabinet. Really canít guess at the color. If you want a good match you need the paint code. If not in the cabinet call Newmar with your coach number and they can tell you.

Geo19Irv:

If you can't find your paint code chart, call Newmar customer service (when they open). They will send you the codes for your coach.
As far as ordering touchup paint (rattle cans, etc.), these guys do a great job: AutomotiveTouchup.
You'll also need a good clearcoat; I recommend Spraymax 3680061 2K Clear, available on Amazon (requires a mask).

Good Luck!

Hard to tell from the picture...but did you refiberglass the area?
Looks like it needs some body plastic work before paint.

that's a tricky color as it has a good amount of metal flake in it and paint technique will change the color (make it darker / lighter). I would not be using a spray bomb...
Get a detail gun if you have an air compressor. If you don't have the tools, get the paint and bring the RV by prepped to an auto body shop so a painter can give it a spray in an hour of time. Just depends on how picky you are of it looking like it never got hit.

From looking at the picture the rest of your rig looks really good. It would be a shame to end up with an ugly repair. Work on getting the scratches and high spots out of that. Use a sanding block/piece of 2x4 or something to get that level with the rest of the body. Then use something like this to get that "smooth-as-a-babies-butt" finish. Using the paint code mentioned above will get your rig looking great again.

Here's a start for you.

Due to age and fading; another consideration would be to use a auto paint supplier with a color matching camera. It will do better than original code and will include the correct level of flakes of required. We matched a bay door handle this way and the rattle can base coat was around 28$ and another 25$ for the rattle can clear coat. Granted it was on a latch so not blended to another face but matched and aged perfectly. We even have extra paint that hopefully is never needed.

My rig is a 2006. I am certain the paint does not match the paint code anymore, and the paint code only matters to the original paint supplier. I went to my local automotive paint supplier with my fuel door in hand. The nice grandmotherly clerk whipped out a gun; actually a laser device that gave her the paint color as a set of numbers. She said come back tomorrow. The next day, I had my paint.

Geo...If you have a removable item, like a refer or water heater door that has that color in it, take the door to a auto paint supplier and let them match it on a computer. Then buy a pint of the color in a can. Next, stop by Harbor Freight and pick up an air brush kit. It will allow you to paint that small area with more control. They're $20.00.
