I think a wrap is the way to go.

I opted for a wrap, if can get close to 10 years of life out of my wrap I'll feel good about it. I plan on buying a full cover for when I put it up for the off season and maybe that will help life span. Click image for larger version

Got it done at a small graphics place here in Birmingham, AL, it was a first for them and a challenge. They want to remain anonymous right now because they don't know if they want to do another one (very labor intensive). There are several places around the country that'll wrap RV's though just have to do a little research. Cost for me around $11,000. We got it wrapped with the existing graphics still on because I didn't want to spend the money to have them removed.

It was all part of major renovation of the RV from exterior to interior, including re-upholstering cracking vinyl furniture to installing LVP flooring.

Many years ago I found a fantastic product for faded finish on my MH. It's called New Glass 2. It is applied with a supplied aplicator. It is not a paint or polish but a clear plastic of some sort. Drys quickly. Apply 3-4 coats and renew w 1or 2 coats every 6-12 mo. You will be shocked at how good it looks - and no buffing!!!

The answer to your question is Yes.
You should be able to get at least the paint scheme name and possibly each color name in your paint scheme. For instance our 2017 Miramar maint scheme is called Crimson Quartz. The four colors in the scheme are; DM220 / Dark Arizona Beige, DM120 / Black Mist Metallic, DM150 / Red Copper Metallic, and YR537P Champagne Mist Pearl. These paint colors should be in the database at the automotive paint store you use to get the paint. I used Sherwin Williams Automotive Paint Store. The only caveat to my situation was that since I live in California I had to wait to get my paint when we traveled to Arizona. In California the paints are water based and don’t match well with the paint that are used at the factory. Good luck with it. I hope this was helpful.

PS, Call Thor Customer Service and they should be able to give you the information after you provide them with your unit number. My touch up paint kit was all dried up from sitting in the Motorhome on the lot for months. There was a paper with the colors that had the color names and the paint codes on it. At the bottom of the paper it listed Carrera Custom Painting #1 574-295-7907
