Ugly vinyl

I know there has been a lot of discussion on interior redesign on these forms. I am not looking to change the overall design of the coach. But I have a lot of vinyl in my coach including the dash and the captain chairs. It is a mauve color which was popular in the early 90s. I would like to change the color scheme of the vinyl to a lite tan or white. Has anybody had any success changing vinyl colors with final paint? One of my concerns is that the paint will fade and eventually rub off the chairs after sitting on them multiple times.

Used car dealers will have vinyl and leather seats fixed and repainted. It has been my experience that the new paint or stain does not last more than a few months.
