Painting Vinyl of mid '60s Caravels?

I have read all the other painting threads. However, I think vinyl may be chemically different in differing years.
I would like to know what you all did with your vinyl walls?
Just scrubbed them?
Prepped, primed and painted?
What was used?
Did you paint over rivets?

There is just too much out there with differing opinions, but I'd like to know what worked with similar vinyl.

Yes, we can rip out and place metal, but Hubbie is not crazy about that. We already have to do some exterior skin work.

I had a 67 Caravel. I sold it about 1 1/2 years ago but still look at these post cause Ii really liked it. I had vinyl coated walls & ceiling. They were great. Not sticky easy to clean and nice and light colored. Would never have thougt of painting or never wanted a painted surface.

Well, ours needs painting, replacing or something! Our PO was pretty hard on Sylvia. Thanks for your comment anyway!

XIM primer has worked for me on many surfaces, but I haven't tried it on the inside of an airstream.
