Sourcing OEM interior laminate cabinetry

This may have been asked before but I couldn't find in a search. Does anyone know a source for matching Airstream interior cabinetry for repairs/modifications when OEM look is desired?

Specifically, I am looking for current "Sunlit Maple" but don't want to purchase from Airstream for obvious reasons. I would love to purchase pre-laminated plywood but will laminate myself if needed but would want edge banding, etc.

I don't know if they use someone like Wilsonart or if they have proprietary colors. I can't find anything searching for sunlit maple buy they could have just changed the name.

Can anyone help?

Wilsonart products were used in my 2014 International Serenity, which I purchased from Home Depot.

Thanks Sim,

Do you happen to know if the name was the same between Airstream and Wilsonart or did you have to find the match yourself? I'm thinking I may have to do that...

Here is a thread for it:

It is also worth checking the parts catalog which lists "waxed maple" for 2022 laminates on page 496 of the 2022 Flying cloud parts manual.

To be sure call AS.

Thanks to both for helping me figure this out. It appears AS made the switch from Wilsonart to Formica. In the FC it does list waxed maple as the color but not Formica specifically however the Classic lists as follows:

Laminate, Formica, Planked coffee

Both are ultimately on Formica's website. Hope this helps others as well.

I was in a similar situation with my 2015 23FB with Gold Alchemy laminate. The mothership gave me the part number and I ordered two sheets from Wilsonart through Home Depot with store delivery. Seamless! I got the edge stripping from CabinetParts.com. Good Luck.

When we modified our cabinets, the cabinet maker wanted our vin number to order the material which was a perfect match. I don't know what process he used to order the materials but maybe that's a clue.
