I think that on your trailer it should be fairly obvious if it has NOT been done. On the photo below, you can see a few darker spots on the roof of my '74 and this is where the old CC has not come off.
In other words, you can see that mine has not been stripped.
Once you have stripped your TT, I think it should be carefully washed and waxed with something, Walbernize or better, once or twice a year, otherwise you will get the natural corrosion taking over.
A highly polished surface should probably been polished more frequently, to keep the high level of shine.
