Default House wrapped in Vinyl

Got to do a house that is completely wrapped in Vinyl

Vinyl siding

Vinyl window trim/doortrim/fascia board

Everything is Vinyl

How much should I charge?

Just kidding

But seriously,I'd like some feedback on how you guys would do it

Oops,I forgot to add the best part/the fascia,windows,doortrim are the only items I'm painting,gotta keep the Siding clean

What would you use for Primer?Would you spray it?I'm changing color from an ugly sky blue to white/Swiss Coffee is the white/covers for beans yet I keep getting requests for it.

I've never had a problem just using a good ext latex. It bonds to vinyl fine without primer as long as its clean. You might want to prime anyway to save material cost. A good latex like 'Fresh Start' would probably do good.
As long as you are going a lighter color( sounds like you are) should be fine. I have even heard some newer paints allow you to paint it darker than original

Clean it good and use vinyl safe colors.
