Removing wood paneling in one piece?

I found an abandoned trailer that has real maple paneling on the walls, in EXCELLENT condition! I would love to get this off in 1 piece but can't figure out how as it's been nailed in! Please, any suggestioins will be greatly appreiciated!! Willing to try any and all suggestions since I already tried the claw part of a hammer and it started tearing it immediately!

It may have been glued instead of nailed by the home owner. I've never seen a mobil home from the factory come with real wood paneling.
