Motor home carpeted ceiling stains

Has anyone replaced the carpeted ceiling in a motor Home? I have a 2001 Pace Arrow 37 foot that has old water stains. I would like to replace with new carpet on the ceiling or other suggested material that would be easy to install.

Replacing Carpet

I have never replaced ceiling carpet but I have hired a carpet cleaning company to remove the stains. If you want to replace the carpet, find an independent carpet installer and have them give you a quote on the costs.

I would try some carpet stain remover. I have a spot as well that I am going to try it on, can't hurt.

We had ceiling stains from a leak on ours when we bought it. I used a small carpet cleaner with a hand wand and it took the stains out. Remember to address the leak first!

We used "Woolite with Oxyclean" which comes in a spray bottle. Works great. Be careful if you use a carpet cleaner/shampooer. If you get the sub surface (likely Luan or ply), too wet under the carpet material, it will leach back into the material (gravity) and look even worse than before.

Just use Clorox cleaner bleach spray, for surfaces. Spray on, wipe with paper towels and all stains will be gone.

Ditto on bleach, my last motorhome (Safari) had beige/off white ceiling carpet with ceiling stains, to clean I would hold a piece of cardboard under area spayed, I found misting stain a few times worked the best, I had a couple of really bad areas, when finished you could not see any signs of water damage.

I removed my ceiling stains using a product named Shout. I would heavily spray the stain than use a shop vac to remove / dry the cleaner. Very easy!

Thanks everyone!

I have tried bleach and it does seem to work for awhile but then bleeds back through. I will try some of the other suggestions.

bleeds back through once the bleach dries or after days / weeks / months? Is there still a leak?

Whatever you try, I would start on inside of a cabinet if you have carpeting on the top of the cabinet. Just in case

If stain back, then you still have water coming in.
