The only color available from Airstream is "Hickory."

The last I check for a small fortune you can get replacements from Airstream. You can order tambour material by the sheet or have it cut to size from various sources. Or you can do what I and others have done take apart and rebuld them with new backing material. It's labor intensive and smelly but not complicated. There should be a lot of stuff in the forums archives. Send me a PM if you want to discuss my technique.

Or, a lot of owners have decided it's not worth it to deal with the time and expense and replaced them with more standard doors. Also a lot on this you should be able to find in a search of the forums past posts.

Go to Omega National Products to see all types of tambour material. Omega National Products. Go to "products" and look for "tambour material". Click on that and it should go to what you want.
