We are in the process of cleaning ours. Go to dollar general and pickup a couple bottles of mean green mildew remover. spray it on, scrub it the wash it off. Then scotch guard it.

Our first PUP was used and we didn't know the first thing we were looking at so we ended up with a moldy piece of junk. It wasn't as bad as this but it was pretty bad. I called a dealer and they told me what they do. You'll need 2 buckets of water. Put a little bleach in one bucket. Use several old towels. Soak one towel in the bleach water and then soak the canvas with it. Follow it with a towel soaked in plain water. Move on to the next spot/section. Repeat the entire process on all the affected canvas until you get most of the stains off. You will not get all the stains off. But you will kill the mold.

Now, you've destroyed the waterproofing, if there was any left that is. Go to a place that sell tents and buy a couple of cans of waterproof spray for canvas tents and a couple of tubes of seam sealer.

For the floors and non-wood surfaces use 409. For the wood use Murphy's Oil Soap.

If it were me I would just replace the canvas. I was given a free pop up because mice chewed holes in the entire canvas and their was mice pee stains on it. I spent $900 and replaced the canvas and I have a MINT trailer now worth much more than my investment.

I agree with Mountainman... replace the canvas. Contact Jayco, they say they can provide canvas for any popup they made. Your investment will payoff in the future if you decide to sell the trailer as many people will not even consider a trailer with signs of mold.

If that PUP is as old as I think it is, the cost of canvas is probably more than the trailer can be sold for.
