I noticed some discussion elsewhere on color codes for the Concourse exterior trim striping. Since I can post photos here (love this forum's format), I thought I would post one of the Trail Wagons color code stickers that are on my '99 Concourse, which has blue trim. These don't look like the hardiest decals, and apparently they are missing or illegible on some rigs.

Perhaps folks with codes for other colors can post up as well so that this can be a good reference thread (but I didn't put it in the reference sub-forum because I didn't want to discourage active discussion - but there are good search terms so it should be findable).

Anyway, here are the original Trail Wagons stickers from my driver's side door jamb. Perhaps this will help folks to know what to look for. Below the photo I'll transcribe the text. The photo has been rotated as the stickers run "sideways" up the door jamb in real life.

The one on the left is a paint color of Ford 1996 Truck Indigo Blue Metallic. Data on the sticker is as follows:

TRAILWAGONS INC.
For: RO:5490*
OEM: KU
MFG.FRD /1996/TRK
DBC5110 H
INDIGO BLUE MET

The one on the right is a paint color of GM 1997 Truck Bright Blue Metallic. Data on the sticker is as follows:
TRAILWAGONS INC.
For: RO:5490
OEM: 25
MFG: GM 1997/TRK
DBC5224 H
BRIGHT BLUE MET

*I have seen this number elsewhere on my rig, although I can't remember where at the moment. Perhaps it's some kind of build number.

PS: I only had so much room for text in the subject line. I wrote "Concourse" but I believe some other models also had paint (later Premiers with the swoopy scheme, plus Destiny, Glacier and others - I'm not so up on the model names of the larger ones ). The earlier Premiers and perhaps some of the other models had vinyl stickers for graphics instead of paint/clearcoat, so they wouldn't have paint codes.

I sold it last Fall. You must have forgotten. :lol: It was a great RV and I hated to sell it but we had done our trips and needed to move on to other things.

I have a 2000 Concourse with light & dark brown exterior stripes. Does anyone have the color codes as mine have been wiped out and I would like to buy some custom spray paint?
PS Just got back from a road trip to California from New Hampshire, this vehicle made my trip quite enjoyable. Much more comfortable than my last trip to Montana in a Roadtrek.

Yay, more color codes. Now we have both the blue and the teal "racing stripe" livery, plus the grey-and-tan (is it tan?) Millenium paint scheme. I hope more will be added (several people hoping for the brown "racing stripe" codes... anyone have them?

Thanks! Do you have two codes? (You posted the same one twice.). And would you have a actual photo of your stripe colors to compare with?

Interestingly, Googling around, that code 4428 is apparently commonly misnamed (because it looks metallic). So searching for it using the Chinook label "blue metallic" will fail to find much.

It is actually called "Reef Blue".

There are a couple of photos in Xatlatc's Bar Harbor thread, but aren't great Chinook color shots. Here is a grainyish photo of what I would call a teal Concourse. Xatlatc, just let us know if this is or isn't your color.

The interior is also teal:

(Not contesting that they called it
Reef Blue -- although for our purposes "teal" is probably good since there is already another blue Concourse color.
