Painting walls inside hybrid

Has anyone painted their walls? I just want to make them white for a fresh look. Is there anything I should know about these walls that have the "wallpaper" on it?

We don't have the hybrid, but we did repaint the entire interior of our 195QB, used TPA then Kilt z, then painted walls white semi gloss and cabinets white high gloss and kitchen grey high gloss. And also installed a new vinyl strip flooring from Loews, the space looks so much better.
Walls took paint fine.

I would star with a good wash down with the appropriate cleaner (read the primer can label), then a good primer like Kilz or Zinser Bullseye 123, finally whatever you want for a color coat. Most of the trailer paneling I have seen has a light vinyl covering. The primer is the trick to making it work well.

I used Bullseye 123 in our old Airstream, then the topcoat. Several years later when we sold the Airstream the interior still good.

The only thing I would do different now would be the topcoat. I would go with a ceramic based paint to reduce the heating/cooling maintain a comfortable temperature.
