How to prevent rust

We pick up our new Phoenix next week. We do like to camp at the beach and one thing that has plagued the old camper is rust. From an odd screw here and there to the frame tubes. I'd like to prevent it as much as possible on the new one. Any tips? Thanks!

Met a couple last year in port aransas that had all exposed metal spray on bed liner applied. Looked pretty good to me.

I learned a long time ago that the CLEAR spray paint, Rust-Oleum, Krylon, or any brand,.... when sprayed over unpainted metal(bolts, screws, washers, ect.) will keep it from rusting for a long time and will look new while doing so,.... you are putting on a coat of protective paint without it looking like it has been painted,....
