Try Lysol Basin Tub & Tile cleaner. (try on a small spot first) I used it to clean our camper, inside & out. It's very good at removing stains, mold and believe it or not a chain smokers residue!
Spray it on, leave a few minutes, wipe off. Be sure to use gloves. Rinse off when finished. Good luck.

My new to me pop up got green stuff on it when I thought I was doing the right thing by keeping it under a tarp. I used car washing liquid, a soft auto cleaning brush, and water. It sparkled! I have since found out that the pop up needs to "breath" and should never be under a tarp (unless it does not actually touch the camper).

Check out a forum such as the Popup Portal. There is a wealth of information specifically for pop up owners and you don't need to join to get all kinds of ideas.

If this is canvas it should work and there should be no issue in dying it a different color. You can try a Ritz dye to start off with or even go to an RV store to see if they have a special dye for this purpose.

We just opened a pop up camper which was closed for two seasons. It was damaged by mice and who knows what else.

It looks like the canvas has pee on it and it smells terrible (sweet sickening smell).
