If the problem is getting a solvent under the vinyl, try a wallpaper bug. It looks like a computer mouse, and has a couple of star wheels on the underside that prick the wallpaper (or vinyl) and leave dozens of tiny holes to let the solvent penetrate the vinyl.

(That was pretty good, I was able to use "prick" and "penetrate" !)

Picked up a rubber wheel yesterday and that is working better than anything so far. Biggest problem with it is I'm having to run it in an electric drill due to location and the drill gets really hot after about 7-8 minutes of continuous use. I will likely use up the wheel on one side of the trailer and have to pick up another but they were pretty cheap and if it gets the job done, I'll be a happy boy. When I go back for the second wheel, I'll look for the 3M product as they make great stuff that works.

Update: The rubber wheel did the job. Pretty much burned up an old junker drill and went through 2 wheels but got 99% of everything off. A few small traces around a couple of the seams where the vinyl seemed to be baked on from a combo of sun and hardware oxidation run-off but all in all, quite pass-able for resale purposes. Thanks to all for your comments and help.
