Pretty much any kind of stripper will do. I used Citri-Strip, because I like that is less toxic and smells nice. If you go an auto paint store, you can "airplane stripper" which will take off a few layers at a time, but is also pretty nasty stuff.

Make sure you follow all of the safety recommendations (rubber chemical resistant gloves, face / eye protection, good ventilation...) And, you might want to check and make sure there's no lead in the paint. You can get test kits at Lowes.
removall 220 is the best paint stripper I have ever used. Not toxic, smells ok, works well and easy cleanup. Downside is you have to buy a gallon. Way too much if your only doing drip rails. Vintage trailer supply sells it for around $60. Good luck.

If you're doing the whole camper, go ahead and get the auto parts store airplane stripper. Nasty as hell, but eats through all layers including primer in one application. Respirator (not paper kind), Glasses, long sleaves, pants, and heavy gloves. Do it outside!. Did my whole camper in two days. Be generous with the application and don't backstroke. You'll be amazed. You actually hear it bubble.
