You can purchase online, but shipping costs can be outrageous due to the sheet size. I would recommend checking here: www.interstatemetals.com/ They are in the Portland Metro area and have done great work for me and others in need of siding.
I see that you are in Seattle. Perhaps you could order the siding and then drive down to pick it up once it is ready.
Eternabond is good stuff but not ideal for a vintage trailer. It doesn't last "forever" and is next to impossible to remove. (the part that loosens, yes, the stuck part, no)
If your roof has pinholes, you need new roof metal. If the vent needs to be pulled, shimmed and re-puttied, that may be all you need to do. However: most trailer leaks come from compromised edge trim putty. So your edge trim needs new putty.
Painting a coating reflects sunlight. Nothing more. There is no roof coating that will seal against leaks. In fact, they cause roof metal damage. When the coating cracks, water seeps underneath, stagnates and eventually rots the metal. Not only that, but a roof coating makes future repairs impossible. I don't recommend coating your roof.
If you only have a few dings or small holes in the metal, there is a product that works: Proflex PAINT ON sealant. (not a caulk) This stuff sticks and glues down remnants of roof coatings. It is not a "whole roof" coating, but a true sealant. It is gooey, messy and must be applied carefully. I've had good luck on seams, the top of edge trim and nicks and dings in the roof metal.
