Use "Softscrub with bleach" and a natural bristle brush (they hold more water than the plastic kind). Dampen the brush, squirt a little Softscrub on the brush and gently brush the vinyl. Wipe off with a damp towel. May need to do it twice in greasy spots like the kitchen area. The bleach additive is not strong enough to damage the vinyl but is good at removing stains.

Try Goop Hand cleaner. Smear it on and use a hot towel to wipe it off. Works perfect! Also it smells good.

A friend told me to try it and I couldn't believe the results.

Good luck,

Smile Yay 67!!!

We used amonia and water 50/50 mix to get the sticky off the walls and ceiling and then gave everything a coat of clear floor polish (Brite). Looks great.

Our gaucho is missing too. We are completely revamping the living space to the way we want it. There are no hard and fast rules when you are bringing your trailer back to life (unless you are a purist). We are putting a combo entertainment/computer center in the front with other comfy chairs. Of course, we have a little bigger AS than yours.

As for curtains, there are professionals that make them, but it's also fun to dig through the Penney's Outlet bins for pleated drapes that can be adapted. When we got our AS, the previous owners had installed miniblinds. They worked, were dirty, but they worked.

Good luck on your project. Don't hesitate to ask questions. We are all pretty much in the same boat or have been at one time or another.
