Well, we got him home; after two tries;;;and there are some oooh's and ahhh's and some ewww's and a lot of head scratching. Hubby is of the bash it until it fits and if that don't work; duct tape it genre!!So it is his hands off and my hands on in the inside...So I am armed with lots of plastic gloves, furniture cleaner, restorer, renewer, polisher(lots of beautiful walnut cabinetry) and every kind of fabric, metal, leather, and vinyl cleaner known to man. But the nasty, used to be blue, tannish dirty gray headliner...Oh Lord...From everything I have read if I try to really clean it, it will either come loose or disintegrate...But it is so dirty...It is not on my AAA list of have to be done's; anybody have any successes on cleaning carpet headliners? I couldn't believe that the carpeting itself was in such really good shape; no stains, or tears or damage at all but dirty, dirty, dirty...This guy has sat in somebodies storage unit somewhere because it is that thick, thick, layered dust, that the more you clean the more you have to clean...

Hi there, I don't remember Ya and I see ya havn't made many posts so first off let me say welcome to IRV2.Com You have fall'in into the hand s of a bunch of rv crazy s that would rather spend 30000 on rebuilding a coach when we could buy a better one for the same money. Go figure, but I guess thats why they gave us our own forum site. They were afraid we might corrupt the rest of the forum.
I can't help you with that roof.I hope someone else will have that info for ya.Enjoy your treasure and post often, Capt.

Missed you the first time around the FIND block just above you has some ideas on how to clean your ceiling just type in -clean fabric ceiling- there are some answers there for you , take off the check mark. You can use Find for alot of answers you may need but don't be afraid to ask on some of the other forums someone will be able to help.
Enjoy the forums and do post often.

A big bucket of Pinesol water and a sponge is your friend when cleaning old rigs. It took me several days to clean the 2 years of dirt off every surface in my camper when I got it. And then I still wound up needing to repaint the cabover (first paint job sucked).
