Thanks.I did ring them but the chap I spoke to wasn’t too enthusiastic about that.I said I’m happy to pay for it but think it fell on deaf ears.

Autotrail owners are holding a rally at Doncaster and they have factory visits etc. If you went to that a face to face request might go better as they will be doing their best customer relations etc .

Magnums in Hull seem to be your closest.
You may well have to buy a full sheet or slim chance they may have a damaged one..
Your not that far away to take down the van or a door to get it matched..(y)

They are in Grimsby which is just over the bridge.Good idea about taking the van but it's laid up waiting for the fiat Recall to be sorted

Option 1)
Caravan Surplus, English Street, HULL. They buy in a lot of Furniture and panelling from the local Caravan Makers.

Option 2) Mick O`Leary, Plaxton Bridge Road, between Dunswell and Woodmansey.

Again most of his stuff is maker Surplus.

P.s Looking at the Picture. The colour and Grain, looks not a million miles away from one of my Older Caravans.

A bit of an "outside the box" suggestion. A have a look at kitchen suppliers. You might find something close to match. Cabinet doors could be used if the inside is not visible after fitting. Cabinet end panels usually have all six sides finished.
A quick google search under kitchen end panels brought up quite a few options

When I had a new Autotrail from Cranham Motorhomes they requested a factory 8x4 sheet for my use and door furniture.Manufactured a sliding door to segregate bedroom,swing up work surface for kitchen ,a shoe box at entrance and some cupboard dividers.You can make a lot of things out of one sheet.Very expensive though.Something like £140 ! but after spending £50,000 + I wanted a perfect match.All looked factory finished.The person I sold it to thought it was until I told him.

Can't remember ;)
Hi Driftwood is my best guess from the pic....OLearys near Beverly or Magnums at Grimsby are your best bets after that we have a place near us on Carlton industrial estate that stock and sell most furniture boards but at £120 a sheet they are not cheap

Somewhere, in the depths of the information retained on this fantastic site, there is one post that gives the actual colours used by auto trail, and from my dim memory a suggestion as to where it could be sourced.
Sorry, I cannot remember how long ago this was, who posted it or other details, but I was once considering some mods in a similar way and thought this was gold dust information.
You have quite a bit of searching and filtering to do, but it’s in here somewhere.(n)

Update/Rang Autotrail factory and spoke to a young lady called Amy,who was very helpful.The colour is cherry apparently She can supply me with a sheet which is all I really wanted.It isn’t cheap but I never thought it would be.No housekeeping to the wife this week.Thanks to all who contributed,much appreciated.I am picking it because delivery would have meant we would have to sell the van to pay for it which would have defeated the object really
