I am building a teardrop camper and would like to paint it.  What process/products would I need to accomplish this?  From beginning to end, I need to patch seams and screw hole, seal the wood, and paint.

Here are the basic steps you would need to do. I would recommend the Brightside paint on plywood; single-pack paints just seem to work better on wood than their 2K counterparts.
1) Sand all the wood to 80 grit
2) Apply 2-3 coats of Y1026 Inter-Prime Wood Sealer
3) Fill any small imperfections, screw holes, etc with Y257 Surfacing Putty
4) Sand everything with 120 grit primer
5) Apply 1-2 coats of Pre-Kote Primer (white or gray depending on paint color choice)
6) Sand all with 220-320 grit
7) Apply 2-3 coats of Brightside Polyurethane in desired color

This system should provide you with years of service.
Thanks,
Jeremy

Thanks! How would I apply. Roller or spray?

Sorry, this escaped my attention, but I believe we spoke on the phone. Either method is fine; spraying is faster and more efficient.
