OK, I think ours is some sort of plastic stuff. I assume you have tried some commercial fabric cleaners?

I know a lot of posters here are refurbishing and remodeling older RVs, so hopefully some of them will see your post and have some suggestions.

OK, other than commercial cleaning products I really have no idea. However, I did a forum search and found lots of previous threads on the topic. Maybe you will find a solution here... https://www.google.com/search?q=remo...earch=irv2.com

The first thing is to repair the leak. Then you can let things dry thoroughly. I have used a product called Oxy-Clean on my ceiling. It comes in a powder that I put in a spray bottle and shook it well to dissolve in water. I Spray a little on the stain and let it dry for a few days. It is best to start from the outside and work toward the center. Then do it again if necessary. I tried saturating the stain and it just spread to a larger area. I hope this helps.

Lol - but you are right. Had same or similar in '91 Airstream B Van. The more you saturate the bigger it gets.

My situation was pretty easy to R&R. Probably the best bet. There are nicer materials - may even provide an insulation upgrade opportunity.

Our roof has similar material. We have used clear windex the glass cleaner to get stains out. It had been effective for us. You might try a small patch and see.

Admittedly your stain problem sounds bigger than any we have dealt with but you never know maybe it will work.

I should have mentioned - what I had was glued to a type of "board" backing and it will warp - bow if it gets too wet. Not sure what stage of wet yours was in, but don't get carried away with getting it wet. Just my experience years ago.

Also - my leak was from Fantastic vent not being sealed in one corner. Amazing how far a little leak can stain. Be sure to check for leak potential as part of annual inspection.

Since Stevie is located in Northern Ireland, I'm not sure if he has access to the same products as we have in the USA.

Roof staining,interior.

The 1st thing I would do is carefully go on your roof. Crawl around and feel for soft spots. Check all vents and around anything that is on the roof. You would be checking for water leakage or areas that need to have the old caulk scraped away and replaced. Next decide if you need to coat your roof. Roof leaks can be fixed with Externabond tape,or liquid roof. Get on Youtube to see videos of RV roof repair. You must fix the roof/source of water intrusion. Then you can fix the staining on the inside roof liner. Keep us posted.
