Color?

We want to have our truck painted to match the
HM370BR FIFTHWHEEL but need to know the name of the main color. Color name? 2018 model

Wow big job to paint a truck, property. You will need to paint the door jams and under the hood, behind the bed the bed the wheel wells just to mention a few places. This is going to get very expensive, read several thousand dollars, and will devalue your truck when you get rid of it. If you really wont to do it your body shop can match the paint.

Many folks, over the years, have gotten decals to match the ones on their rigs or painted the truck to have the same trim as the trailer.

Another option opposed to painting is doing a vehicle wrap in vinyl to match the coach. LOTS less expensive than painting and can be removed when getting rid of the truck.

Take a hatch door to your paint supplier. They can easily match the color.

You WILL have sticker shock just buying the base coat paint and clear coat. Then there is the prep including any bodywork and then labor for painting the truck. To do it correctly, you will be looking at 6 to 10,000 dollars, additional custom paint work will add even more.

Just a comparison - I was quoted $6K to just spray a totally to the last part disassembled Model A Ford roadster. I was to supply the paint and do all of the prep work and car reassembly. I got to be a really good painter and did the job myself for less then $2K including a $400 pro level IWATA spray gun

If that cost is OK with you, then please do it and when complete, post photos of the job
