    Any suggestions on how to remove the stains? Scrubbing alone doesn't work and I'm wary of using anything that might take the colour out or eat holes in it!

    Snap ! I can' t be any help I' m afraid except to say that we spent 4 years and took every bit of forum advice we could find , as well as trying everything we could think of, and still sold the van on with a stained awning that looked exactly like your. Ours was even the same grey patterned material as yours.

    I have posted this method several times.. saw it some years ago on an RV forum .. works a treat..

    Bucket of warm water with a good squirt of washing up liquid and a cup of thin bleach
    Using a soft broom, wash both sides with the solution..
    Wind the awning back in.. still wet and soapy
    Leave for 30 mins.. unroll and hose off.
