Paint Stripping

Many parts of vintage trailers may need to have paint stripped. The following techniques can be used on any surface.

Many vintage travel trailers have windows like the ones on this 57 Scotsman. And often they've been painted. These windows can be cleaned up to look like new. The paint needs to be stripped and then the aluminum polished.


To strip the paint off the windows any paint stripper found in your local hardware store will work but I like Jasco. Please follow all instructions on the container.

You simply apply it with a brush using rubber gloves and eye protection then wait about 10 minutes and clean it off with a wire brush or scuffing pad and water. It took 2-3 applications to remove all the paint.
