The cab paint will be provided by the base manufacturer - Fiat? Ford?

If its a Fiat or Ford cab, there should be a paint code on the bulk head.

It depends if the paint finish was provided by the vehicle manufacturer or the Motorhome converter.
If the cab retained its original vehicle’s paint work then you could get the code from the model details plate.
If it’s a paint job by the Motorhome converter then I doubt if they would retain a paint code reference.
If you’re having a professional respray the you’ll have to accept ’nearest match’ which is usually spot on.

I'm not signing anything.

The two impulses in travel are to get away from home, and the other is to pursue something - a landscape, people, an exotic place. Certainly finding a place that you like or discovering something unusual is a very sustaining thing in travel.
