Mold spots on canvas (bunk ends)

This is a picture of the rooftop of my bunk ends . I have tried bleach, vinegar, some other chemicals. None seem to work to remove this mold spots. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks

I haven't tried it on the inside but it sure does work on the outside. It contains hydrogen peroxide plus detergents. Give it a shot with a soft brush so you can get down into the rough texture. It is recommended by the fabric manufacturers.

I used this product on my Fleetwood Pupup camper and it worked great.
Losso Mold and Mildew Cleaner
Bought it on Amazon.

We tried a bunch of different stuff on ours and nothing worked. Ours was not near as bad as that.

It happened from previous owner. I think they may have left it in the heat after there was condensation on the bunk roof. Or maybe they didn't season the canvas first.

Update - So, I tried the oxiclean with a soft bristle toothbrush. It works ok. It made the spots a little lighter looking but didn't remove them entirely.

Our Roo apparently sat on the dealer's lot for awhile and had mold on both bunk ends when we bought it. They said they will remove it for us, but we haven't had it back in for service yet. Waiting on a new bunk end as there was delam, so hoping we can get it taken care of at the same time.

Just wondering what oxiclean form is better. The spray or the powder?
Thanks
