Need wallpaper

Has anyone contacted Thor if in need of additional matching wallpaper for interior walls? Is it possible to get some from them or should I just try to find something similar at Loweís?

Seriously? Can you explain that process... Specifically who you contacted by phone or email, etc.?

I damaged a small section trying to repair a half-assed job by a dealer tech.

Did Thor send it to you directly, or did you have to go through a dealer?

Thor sent it directly. We had to tear some off to find water intrusion and to dry the wall out. Spoke with customer service in late 2020. Thor shipped it directly to me. They referenced some sort of field service repair ticket number.

Iíve still got a ton of it. What color and how much do you need. Itís a 36Ē wide roll.

I know I've seen the interior color designation on the owners knowledge center... trying to find that.

Yes it's a light tan. My wife dubbed me the official village idiot for trying to wipe off excess spray adhesive with acetone... a small area next to the rear wall about 4" square. One of those "I can't believe you did that!" episodes.

I sponge painted it with a mix of various acrylic paints... not too bad, but really needs a piece of wallpaper patched in.

Here's an idea of color... still can't find the name.

Apologies to the OP for hijacking your thread. But it sounds like if your coach is fairly recent the Thor may have the interior materials still available...

Recommend you get in touch with the Thor Parts department. They have every RV tracked by VIN and there is a parts list for each individual RV. They should be able to tell you what your wallpaper is and who manufactured it. If they have stock on hand they might be able to provide. If not you can contact manufacturer. I have had good success doing this. In my case we were checking on cushion fabric. Thor gave us the manufacturer and we contacted them directly.

No luck. Too old and they no longer have it available per parts department. I guess I will be trying to match it.

It’s for a 2015 Axis. Replacing due to crappy window install, water damage.

No, the color of mine is not tan but yellow. I might try another parts person. She didnít ask for VIN but year of coach and said they no longer had it.

If you're crafty and have an eye for color - or have ever done sponge painting - you can do a respectable job. I have a career in mixing printing inks and computer color matching... so this is second nature for me. But anyone can do it - trial and error.

Not sure if you recognize sponging, but it looks like a base color with various colors of "paint blotches" randomly applied over it. You may be able to find a YouTube tutorial.

Identify the base color by looking closely with a magnifier. Do the same with the overlays of sponging. Go to Walmart or a craft store and buy the closest match in small containers of acrylic paints. The trick is finding the technique which matches your existing wallpaper the closest.

Remember - it's just water based paint... if it doesn't look right, wipe it off with a wet paper towel and try again! You'll eventually get it "close enough".

Did you ever find what the name of your seam color is, or where to find it? I've been in contact with Thor and they sent me some which they said (based on pictures) it was, but it was totally different. I provided my VIN and now they are wanting me to "see if it matches" the picture they are providing.

Just wondering if you ever found the actual name since Thor doesn't seem to keep it anywhere.

Actually my good man Jimbo56 hooked me up!!
Perfect match!

And... man of my word, next year when the wife retires, and we make it down to his neck of the woods... I'll have a cold beer or two in the fridge with his name on it!!

It's the kindness of folks like that which makes this forum an outstanding place to hang out.
