Care to speculate?

Washed the trailer after a long, wet winter. I'll have to go at it again next time the rain clouds break.
Anyway, found this stain on the front, driver-side of the trailer. I tried Turtle Wax Bug 'n' Tar to no avail. Next I'll use my 3M Marine Restorer.
But, meantime, any guesses as to what could have caused this? My immediate thought was that the neighbour sprayed moss killer, but I would think that would be a finer, less distinct pattern.
Over to you.

It's 17. Acne?

On the serious side, mold that has grown into the gel coat?

Nope. That is the sunny side of the trailer when parked in the driveway. Stain wasn't there when I parked it.

Guy next door can't afford a lawn company after spending way too much money on house reno. I don't pay my guys to encourage the lawn to grow, only to cut it. It's just at the front of the trailer on one side.

Glenn,
Having little info other than the color to go on, I would give vinegar a shot. (Or give it a shot of vinegar, depending on your mind-set!)

Will do. Try anything, but first, I need a beer.
