Removing mold and mildew from bunkends

Good morning. We just picked up our Roo 23B yesterday and today begins clean up. It's an older model (2006) but was well kept. The bunkends do not appear to have leaked but there is slight mold and mildew on the inside canvas and the mattresses. I'm assuming the mold on the mattress came from moisture and condensation underneath over the years? It doesn't smell like it's been there forever.
My question is what has everyone used for the mattress and should we clean them or replace them. (I can post pictures later when we open it up).
I've used the Bass Pro Shop Instant Mold and Mildew Remover on the inside of our bunkends from our old pop up and it worked fabulous!! Has anyone used this on the mattresses as well? And is there any other suggestions for removers that have worked for you that can be used on the canvas and the mattress? The Bass Pro cleaner is slightly pricey and only found in a store not so close to us. Home Depot and Lowes is closer as is Valu or Ace Hardware. I've seen some might be available at Walmart as well.
I'm just not familiar with others.
TIA

You should ask the moderators to move this to the Roo/Shamrock.

You might want to do a search there, too.

No, you posted in the TT/5th Wheel section's Rockwood sub-forum.
I moved it to the Hybrids/Expandables Discussion sub-forum.

Congrats on your purchase. I was beginning to think I had the only remaining 2006 23B
