Jayco laminate brand?

Does anyone know what brand of laminate Jayco is using on their countertops?
I have asked them for the color code which they have given, but they have not told me the name of the manufacturer. ( example Formica, Wilsonart)
I am hoping to order some laminate direct from the manufacturer in order to have a counter extention made. Jayco wouldlike me to order a sheet of laminate through my dealer, who I know will triple the price...

Any help on this would be appreciated.

Find a local laminate/formica countertop guy/gal and they can get an exact match to your sample.
I found this out a few years back as we were getting our home kitchen new counter tops and had ordered thru Lowes.After 8 weeks and still no tops we started looking and found a lady in Longview that did countertops.she matched our selection perfectly and did the job 2 days after looking and giving us a price.She removes laminate from the plywood top and puts down new.

Thank You

After spending several hours searching the net.. I found out that Jayco is using Wilsonart Laminate.
The 2011 Color for the Jay flight trailer and many others is bronzed Fusion #1796

Many 2012 trailers will have the color Ebony Fusion #1799.

Check the Wilsonart site.. Seems Jayco likes the word "fusion" in their choices.. I think most of our counter colors can be found there.
I just saved myself hundreds of dollars as I can now order this laminate wholesale....
Just goes to show that persistence pays off !

That is an excellent find, Ladywendolyn. I've been toying with the idea of making a fold-down counter extension but like you, the last place I wanted to buy the laminate from was the dealer.

Quahog.. Does this look like your counter color? I think the colors may have been the same in both 2010-2011.

Yes, I looked up that 1796 color sample on the Wilsonart site and it looks like a dead ringer for my counters.

Hey, I don't know whether you saw it or not but you can order a sample for free with free shipping. I did so I will match it before I buy a sheet. Thanks again for the info!

Our local Home Depot & Lowes have the 2" x 3" samples available for free. We used them while redoing our kitchen, and then decided not to use laminate. They had Formica & Wilsonart.

Thanks for the info, I will have to check out if they have our color. We have a 2010 - 29.5 RKS and want to modify the counter. The "L" wraps around too far and makes it hard to get to the refrigerator when the slide is closed. You have to bend your knees under the counter while the calfs of your legs are against the dinette table in the down position. It is all but impossible to do it with the dinette table in the raised position. There is plenty of counter space in this unit, the approx. 6" removed from the "L" would not even be missed. I do wish the design engineers would use these units.
