Default Painting utility trailer

I have a small utility trailer. Metal frame with wooden deck and sidewalls.

It's got some rust starting on the fenders and under the deck so I want to paint it. I've got to get new tires on it, so I figure I'll grease the wheel bearings and paint it while I have it up on Jack stands.

I'm not a painter.

I know Rust-Oleum is a popular choice, but what all do I need to do? I'm planning on pressure washing everything, then taking a wire wheel, wire brush and sand paper to all the old paint and exposed metal.

What do I do then and what should I buy? I know nothing about paints/primers etc. I don't mind using a brush, that'll come out better than spray I assume.
