2 tone blue stripe color '81 Excella II

I am starting the research to replace the stripe on my trailer. I have searched the threads but haven't been able to figure out what color the original stripe is on my trailer. The trailer is a 1981 Excella II.
Would anyone have any stock photo's of the stripe color?
Any ideas would be appreciated.

FYI, they also have the Propane Gas Bottle Cover Lid that is broken at the hinge in your second photo.

You can find a similiar color ( or different for that matter) striping on EBAy sold for boats, rv's etc...and not have to pay 3.95 X 60 feet or more. I did three different Airstreams and paid 20-25 bucks for 100' rolls.
My latest is a 1980.

I would put in striping tape, boat striping, rv stripe tape, etc.
I have bought striping three times on there and gotten great deals.
Thanks about the trailer, she is pretty sweet....now.Shoulda seen her before.

I am currently redoing the stripe on our 81 Excella II. I decided that painting it would last longer. Plus I could not find the perfect match for the stripe. I have just finished the outer blue. Next up the stipe. The stripe at Out-Of-Doors is not quit the right match. They are in the process of keeping an eye out for the right one. In the mean time I think I will be painting it.

What kind of paint did you use? Can you post a picture of the finished product? Deciding what to do with my 71 Excella (single tone stripe)

Thanks
