cheep?

Hi I'm new on here and just like to say hi. Also I have been looking into using this paint.
I'm not sure why every one seems to think its so cheep. Now I know auto paint costs a lot. But at $22.00 per Qt plus tax that's $100.00 per Gal.
I have a 12 foot cargo trailer I want to paint and I called Duplicolor and they say,,"as I thought" it would take about a Gal to cover it. And that's one coat. Some of the colors need at least two coats. "Myself I would never do less than two but better if three"
One coat primer $100.00 two coats paint $200.00 then the clear. Again at least two coats $200.00. ($500.00 just for the paint?) That's cheep?
