Advice on painting the outside of my vintage trailer

Hi we just got a 1968 Woodsman travel trailer. I would love some advice on how to paint the outside. Some things I read say to use thinned out oil paint, And then cover with latex. Is this good advice?

Restoration in progress

We bought a 1968 Roadrunner in Jan and have been working on it, a little piece at a time since then. Now it's time to really deconstruct the body of the RV. The roof and front skins are off.

I have before and during pictures to upload when I can.
