Question Travel Trailer Makeover Question

I'm thinking about painting over my interior travel trailer wallboard, but am concerned about wear and durability. Is there any reason why you shouldn't paint as opposed to using wallboard or wallpaper?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Welcome to the diy forums

Paint won't wear as well as paneling.

If you decide to paint [sometimes it's the only good choice] sand lightly and coat with a solvent based primer to assure adhesion. Top coat with latex, waterborne or oil base enamel. Paneling usually takes 1 coat primer and 2 coats finish.
