Default Cleaning a enclosed trailer

I just bought a used enclosed trailer that looks as if it hasn't been washed in years. I washed it well and tried some light rubbing compound but it didn't really clean any of the filth off. Any ideas what may work well?

You can see the writing in the dirt on the side I can't seem to get it off.

Believe it or not, bleache white works well at removing grime. I use it with a scrub brush to clean my plastic patio furniture every spring.. I buy the half gallon refill at meijer for like 5 or 6 bucks.

Awesome cleaner, sold at Family Dollar and Dollar General.
Read instructions. I think it's the same stuff as Betco Ultra 2000.

they make a cleaner for aluminum siding/mobile homes, it is a concentrate that comes in a gallon jug. It is applied with a brush and rinsed off. I can't remember the name but is was clear and smelled like it had acid in it. Does wonders for cleaning grimy vehicles too!
I believe I originally bought it at lowes or depot. It was called ''mobile home wash'' or something like that.

I use RV Magic on mine. I don't know what is in it but it smells like Wesley's Bleche Wite.
