I haven't tried this myself, but Krylon Fusion Plastic Paint is used and recommended highly by some skilled craftsmen here.

Hello and welcome

And before you paint, what walls? The exterior walls, the divider walls, or the bathroom abs walls? prep and paint type might vary depending on what walls you mean. Hope we can help. And again welcome to the forums. PS we love pics! John

First I prepped the walls with a scrubby and degreaser. Then killz primer, then followed threw with 2-3 coats of satin paint. So far its proved to be durable for cleaning. Make sure you follow dry times before re-coating and outside temperatures if you travel down this route. Oh and open windows so you don't get dizzy.

We painted the interior of our trailer 3 years ago. We made sure the walls are very very clean and rinsed very very well. Then we used Bondz primer and 2 coats of exterior latex paint. So far, so good. Some have used Fusion spray paint, especially on the end caps as they are plastic in some models. I think prep is more of a key than what paint you use.
Good luck, and welcome!

I just got finished painting our interior on the 65 Caravel. I lightly sanded the Zolatone finish, mostly to level the raised surfaces. I cleaned real good with Krud Kutter. Applied a Benjamin Moore tinted to match oil based primer they recommended. Final top coat was Benjamin Moore Super Spec HP Alkyd oil base paint. It turned out great. Time will tell, but the surface seems to be very strong. It certainly brightened up the interior.

I'm a long time user of KILZ and BIN priers, I am now also using a primer called STIX by Insl-X (an Benjamin Moore company).

I know where it got is name. It sticks to darn near everything (including PVC, vinyl, plastic, glass, tile, glossy paint, fiberglass, and galvanized metal). Pretty much any paint will stick to it.

Cleans up with water.

Skatiero does fabulous work restoring trailers.
