Vinyl does not last that long especialy if you are in the south, that's how I wound up with Chromalusion (color changing) paint, aftermarket vinyl started to crack and peel.

Now IMO the color and lines of a classic Holiday the OP has is something not to mess with, get it painted exactly as the factory had the vinyl ..... Then again Im a NUT for classic rigs!!!!

Such as type of vinyl and source, as well adhesive?

That looks good.

I bought the roll of 3M standard vinyl here, 3M Vinyl Striping | Pinstriping Tape | Order Today
they will send you free color samples, standard quality is 5 to 6 years outdoor life, all the rolls are 150' easy to apply, just wash the area, peel off the paper backing, squirt soapy water on and squeegy out the bubbles as you go, adheasive is already on the vinyl, exacto knife to trim around items, I started at the rear, and by the time I got up one side I had it figured out better and it went quicker and smoother. I wanted to be able to remove the stripe in case I ever wanted to sell it if I found another coach I liked better.

Additionally, There is a product call 303 protectant sold at marine stores like west marine that will extend the life of your vinyl quite a bit if you use it religiously. Works great on awnings and plastics and other parts subject to serious degradation from uv rays.

And vinyl is not difficult to apply, take your time, use a spray bottle with water and a cpl drops of soap in it and just work right along. It goes much easier than one would think. Long stripes and large pieces could require an extra set of hands though.
