The panels have a vinyl type coating so unsure how you would prep it so the paint would stick, but it should be possible.

I'm looking into this as well - tired of that tired old blotched-olive vinyl! ��
From what I've read, the walls need degreasing with a 50/50 water/vinegar, then lightly sanded to roughen it up. After using a tack cloth and warm water to clean up the dust, the wall is primed with a product called Gripper, then painted with a high-bond latex paint. It looks like the hardest part is getting the window valence boxes off, so we'll try reupholstering them as well at this time. I'm going to start in the bathroom to perfect my work flow. Have you started your project yet?

Just let them go at it as long as they post pics! As far as resale they probably wont stay on the market as long as other have!
