removing exterior paint

Recently we have purchased a 1973 Argosy, in which the previous owners, (now deceased), had painted. Looks like it was NOT sanded,or prepped in any way. Pretty much looks like they took some cheap paint and sprayed it on. Of course, it is peeling and we want to strip it off. However, we would like to get suggestions from others who have removed paint ,successfully.

Any type of aircraft stripper will work like removALL 220. Here is a link for Vintage trailer supply.
RemovAll 220

You can also use stuff from the big box stores, but this stuff is tried and true on aluminum.

Just realized they no longer have a source for removeALL 220 and are recommending this:
Eldorado PR-5044 Paint Remover

I took mine to a guy who paints airplanes.
Stripped all the old paint with an aircraft aluminum stripper.
Primed with a gray epoxy primer.
Coated with 08 Toyota Tundra metallic silver. Gloss black for banana wrap.
Airstream Blue on bottom rail (to match new rub rail insert).
Painted the Argosy logos blue.
Painted the rims metallic silver.
Toped off with 2 clear coats.
