Lacquer or enamel on 2009 Phaeton???

Is the outside paint on a 2009 Phaeton enamel or lacquer. I need to touch up some spots and want to use the correct paint.

On both my old 2008 and new 2013 Allegro Bus, I use lacquer thinner to thin the Tiffin furnished touch up paint. From that, I assume it's a lacquer based paint. Of course, you'll get a flat finish if you're using the factory furnished touch up paint. A clear coat is required for the shine unless you are using a different type of paint.

It is neither lacquer nor enamel. It is “basecoat/clearcoat”. The color coat, as I recall can be thinned with lacquer thinner.
