textured vinyl over the drywall needs repainted

I don't know what to use to get rid of the "sheen" and the print/texture. I have painted two coats and while it looked ok in that room, I don't want those results in my living area. Its a mobile home so all the walls have it and other than replacing the drywall, what are my options? Thanks so much

The sheen you can get rid of, the texture not so much. Although a flat paint will make the texture less pronounced. Use Gardz by Zinnser as your primer, then any flat over that.
