the exact color match is dupont centari metallic grAy #44146-A
this is extremely durable self leveling paint and worth the $ imo.
look how long it's lasted (30 years?) on yer trailer.

they are the same colors, the A or K is related to...
hardeners (i think)/single stage
OR container (rattle vs quarts) OR the A is fer Airstream...
many DO make substitutes with other paints like the sears stuff, duplicolor or whatever, but they are NOT the same colors...
every eye sees them differently.
the 3 most recent grays (used for 30 years) are...
-metallic gray (also written as gray metallic)
-gray smoke (a ppg paint dbu3845)
-pewter gray (a special mix dupont centari used on the lowers of most new trailers)
then there is an older...
-pearl gray (dupont centari 45751-A)
there is also a silver which is dupont lucite B82622 (used on tire covers on mohos and lp bottle covers)
any dupont shop can MIX the metallic gray with the # above.
WHICH product is/was used WHERE gets confusing (lowers/A frame/bumpers/jacks/segment protectors)
MOST modern trailers will use...
metallic gray with the a/s part # 360151-01
pewter gray with the a/s part # 3900260-100
((the 2001-7 22 ft int/safari has gloss BLACK
not gray on the lowers, perhaps ))
again self leveling, very durable/tough paint and exact matches for touch up OR respraying.
ONE simple call to the a/s parts store and the girls will know EXACTLY the color needed for ALL trailers or mohos...
these were used on trailers and mohos but there are dozens of a/s moho paints and codes...
used over the years and models (classics, slabs, class B)
