Cabinet stain

I have a 2018 Sunset Trails 222rb and want to make a new drawer front in the outdoor kitchen area to install a tv mount. Can anyone tell me what brand of stain Crossroads uses on their cabinetry

Hello and welcome.

Checked the 2018 brochure and there is no mention of wood color. Can you remove a door from somewhere else and take it to a cabinet shop or maybe one of the big box home stores and see if they could match it?

Minwax has a good selection of stains. Remember, different varieties of wood stain differently with the same color stain.
For the finish, I've been using water based Minwax Polycrylic, very durable and water clean up.

They do not use a stain on their "wood", it is a plastic(vinyl?) coating.

I don't think that is entirely correct. My cabinet doors are stained.

That depends on the brand /level of camper. Our Cruiser had real wood and our Seville has even more. But that comes with a price in the form of extra weight.

I stand corrected, most I have seen, from many manufacturers, are simply plastic coated. That being said, I wouldn't doubt the higher end stuff uses real wood. (I wouldn't know, I am not wealthy enough to bother looking at the high end stuff.)

cabinet stain

Thanks for all the replies.

My drawer front is made from 1X maple.

I was able to find a minwax stain that sure looks like the original, but will only know when the new one has the stain and polyurethane are applied.

My motivation in making a new drawer front is to be able to put a quick release tv mount on it in the outdoor kitchen area. I didn't want to have to fill the holes from the cabinet hardware and put screws into the face of the original drawer fave to secure it to the cabinet frame. I'll just keep the original and change it out when i go to sell it someday down the road.
Thanks again all
D

Best to try it on a sample piece of board to see what colour it comes out as and see if it matches. Apply the top coat as that can change the colour somewhat.
