Staining/finishing wood trim in a Rushmore

I'm not sure if Crossroads uses the same woodwork in their entire fleet of campers, so I'm not sure if the Rushmore forum is the best place for this question, but we'll start it here.

In my recently acquired 2013 Jefferson, there are few places in the trim which look like it was struck by an un-secure piece of furniture while traveling. The bare wood is showing. I'd like to stain/finish this to get it looking like new again, but want it to match as best as possible. Does anybody have a recommendation of a stain that can be purchased at a big box store that will give a nice matching result with the rest of the wood in my rig?

I know they sell matching stain in magic marker type tubes. Otherwise buy a good quality stain and some some semi gloss finish. I personally use Minwax. Let each dry thoroughly and after a few days lightly rub down the repair with some 000 steel wool. Little wax and your done.

Other option is to use Danish oil finish. Has the color and finish in one product.
All above available at Lowes.

Thanks. Guess I should have been more specific, I'm looking for the particular color that's in my camper-Minwax Honey Oak-for example. My experience in these matters has been that the samples in the store don't match as well as I'd like once I've actually done the staining/finishing. Hoping someone has been down this road with trim/cabinetry the same color as mine and can recommend something specific.

Call CrossRoads,if I remember correctly several years ago some called them gave them the Vin number of their unit, and they were able to give them the brand and part number, and it was available in a box store. The vin was important as they some time change the color in mid year

When we were at the factory rally in July, Crossroads gave out those markers for free. There were four in a set, each a different shade, and look like large crayons. They are for covering nicks, etc. in woodwork.
