Question on sealer

If I use a urethane primer do I have to use sealer first before spaying either a base coat / clear coat or a single stage paint.

My problem is the person I want to paint my truck tells me that if I use a primer, sealer, 2 coats of base and 2 coats of clear it means he is going over the entire truck four times or more and that jacks the costs up really high for the paint job.

He is telling me to just use a urethane primer and a single stage paint which would bring the total cost down to about half of doing it the other way.

Can you get a single stage metallic paint?

What do you think? This is a nice daily driver but not a show truck.
