Adhesive

Is there any adhesive I can use on the outside of the trailer that will not remove the clear coat or harm the finish? How about picture hanging tape is that safe to use on the trailer?

You can use most tapes. I have a medallion that uses double-sided foam tape and a name tag using the same near the door. I have also used industrial strength Velcro on the trailer. When removing, I would squirt a little lighter fluid on it and let it soak in to make it easier to remove and to remove any residue. It will, however, “show” as the fiberglass behind the tape is protected from the sun. You may see a ghost image the same as happens when the ETI installed graphics are removed or “peel” due to age or exposure.

Perfect, thank you. Just wanted to make sure I wouldn't do damage to the gel coat.
