I'll basically echo the other folks here.

Get some good airplane paint stripper, squirt it on, go drink a few, hose it off, repeat as needed.

Just might want to do it out in the desert where the EPA won't see you

Seriously though, looks like Mother Nature has got a head start on it for you. If there aren't a bunch of big dents, I'd sure go $1000 for it.

Best of luck!

Four layers! Jezz! That's a ton of paint! I don't think with the lack of quality on the paint job they would have taking the time to bondo. But you never know.

It's a screaming buy at $1K for a project trailer.

Can I use a Hoime Depot stripper and knock it off with a power sprayer?

Yes, that method works well.

Buy Kleen Strip Aircraft Remover, NOT the " "low odor" version.

The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......
