Cari I have stripped two trailers ,one was a older scamp
and was fairly easy and turned out great. The other was a older love bug
and was very difficult . I used the same citrus stripper on both but the results were very different as the paint used on each trailer was very different . On both trailers I applied the citrus stripper liberally and covered with plastic so it would remain wet . The scamp
paint came off easily with a power washer and some further applied stripper to stubborn spots. The love bug
on the other hand was almost impossible to remove with out causing damage to the gell coat and soffening of the fg and I had to give up and fill, sand and paint. The only thing I could suggest is you try it on a small area first to see how it works .in either case unless there was no damage under the paint and the paint comes off easily I think you will be looking at repainting the trailer. Assess the situation carefully as it may be much easier and cheaper to work with the Finnish you have now. Good luck with your project.
