Who to contact for plastic fender cover for Redwood

Hi folks,
We had a blowout and it damaged one side of the plastic fender cover. We've called our dealer to order a replacement, but they can only get it in black. Ours is not that color. Who could we contact or how would we go about getting the proper replacement part? Ours is Redwood 41' RW38GK, purchased in 2017.

Regardless of who or where you get it it'll be black.
You can go to an automotive paint store & possibly order a rattle can of paint to match or a body shop to have it painted, but you won't find one off the shelf to match the custom paint job on your RW. Also if it happens to be in 2 separate pieces over the wheels it'll be 1 piece, you'll have to cut it wherever necessary. It's a one size fits all.
I can't believe your dealer didn't inform you of this, they know it, apparently didn't want to deal with it.

That was exactly the impression we got from our dealer....they were not very helpful. Fortunately, the part we can get is 1 piece, which is what we need. I can't believe Redwood does not offer parts in all of their custom paint colors. Oh well, I guess we'll just go ahead with the black one and get it painted by a body shop. Thanks so much for the answer!

every painted RV is a custom paint job, it would be impossible to paint a bolt on part to fit two different RV's. the trailer is assembled then sent to a different company for paint. They hand tape the mask off areas to add a different color. True they masking templets are cut on a plotter, but the crew makes the final taped on location.

Expect the shipping cost to be nearly the same as the part price.

Trekwood is ridiculously expensive especially on shipping, but unfortunately in some cases they're the only option. But I would exhaust ALL other options before them.

You may also find that getting that small piece painted will be expensive. The body shop will have to custom mix the paint, prime, paint & clearcoat that piece of trim, you may decide black looks just fine.
