A belated " Welcome to irv2 " first post I see , and apparently the pictures didn't come trough.

My 05 , EEE 5th wheel was wood truss, not sure about class A's.
Factory still operational , producing Super B. s so you could phone, or just pull down a vent trim and look around with a mirror.

Skip Thanks for the quick reply . Going down to Harrison Hot Springs today to my cousins . He is a jack of all trades and we are going to tear the ceiling out and replace it with luan panels or FRP . Water stains on fabric ceiling would be a pain to clean . I have no doubt I am about to open a can of worms but can't let fear or common sense hold you back .

You, have to be sure the leak is fixed , if they are water stains.
Many , myself included, have issues with the glue used to hold the fabric in place showing through, and collecting dirt.
Cleaning; can be done with a strong solution of hydrogen peroxide ,may take several treatments, spray on and let dry.
