The last two posters are right on.
(boards on the other side, creating a true privacy fence).

Either that, or replace the fence entirely if you want vinyl. Vinyl and wood are going to react differently to temperature and humidity changes, so you could end up with a lot of problems with the two parts separating if you try just putting vinyl siding on top of wood. If you want the low maintenance and clean look of vinyl, you're better off starting out from scratch.

It’s called a “privacy fence”.

Vinyl Siding is a poor choice for many reasons imo.
Agreed. I almost think you will qualify for "you might be a redneck" type of jokes if you install siding on your fence.
