OK, depends on how cruddy it is..........and how old.........most likely U gonna get wet doing it. If it average cruddy I recommend go to a good hardware store and buy something called "Tri Sodium Phosphate" TSP for short. It comes in a bag as a dry powder something like salt. U mix it with water and scrub the whole surface of the trailer with it. Depending how strong U mix it it will remove everything from bugs and tree sap to enamel paint. Wear clothes U don't want anymore! Bathe well immediately as it is somewhat caustic. Rinse the trailer well. If that don't do it then U need to go to a paint store and get a product called "Metal Etch" That's a mild acid and protective clothing is necessary. Neither product will make yer airstream look brand new without applying a coat of clear laquer or varnish after cleaning. Rinsing window gaskets and seals is a must after using either product. I used a sponge mop and tsp on mine and never bothered with clear coat........looked fine with normal washing for abt 10 yrs after..........If the blue stripes are faded or oxydised U nay need to repaint them.
