I painted my floors in an old camper and it worked great and held up very well.
I painted it with regular latex paint. I did a tile effect. The trick is to coat it with as many coats of polyurethene as you can stand putting on. (At least 4)
I made the mistake of using one that yellows. DO NOT DO THIS!! luckily the yellow tint blended with my color scheme or I would have been suicidal! They make non yellowing poly coats. Be sure to use this.

Painting vinyl floors

Why paint vinyl floors? Some folks opt to paint vinyl floors to give floors a new look and to extend the inevitable replacement of them. Vinyl tends to wear and discolor from age, asphalt tracking, sunlight, and chemicals. The wear layer tends to wear off in the high traffic areas. Vinyl floor covering patterns and colors can also date a home. Painting a vinyl floor that is in reasonably good condition is a way for some to extend their budget and update their floors.
