A little background: We live in a trailer. The property and the trailer are owned by my FIL. He bought them shortly after DH and I got married so that we could live here until we move in a few years when I go for my MSN (we'll have to move out of state for that). The reason we agreed is a long story, but that's the gist of it. He intends to rent it out after we move (which will probably be in about two years). When we moved in, he told us to treat the place as if we owned it, from hanging pictures to replacing appliances, etc.
Now, my question: Would you paint, knowing that you want be here for a long time? I'm considering it because A. I hate the ugly walls, and B. I think that a nice coat of paint in each room would make it look nicer when FIL tries to rent it.
There are also a couple of small holes from the previous owners (and one that we did while moving something heavy) that we intend to patch, so I think painting over that would also make it more attractive.

I say paint it ! He wouldn't have said it if he didn't mean it, I don't think. I would be courteous and use neutral colors!
