What paint primer to use?

I want to pain the inside on my 76 Argosy MH. It has plastic and aluminum on the inside. Aluminum is covered by a white vinyl I believe?

Can anyone please tell me the proper primer and paint to use? I want to paint it white.

thanks

Before you paint the vinyl, "YOU MUST" sand in to it with 120 to 150 grit sandpaper.

Not scuff it, but sand it.

If not, the primer and paint will peel.

A good primer is epoxy based.

plastic

If I only want to pain the plastic what should I do?

Any suggestion on filling the cracks? Calk?


I think I'm going to skip the vinyl, it's in good shape.
