what kind of stain, how big a stain, on what color curtains? sometimes stains can be removed with hydrogen it and you'll find lots of info on that. sometimes dyeing can cover a stain or at least lessen its appearance if you do it the right color. you can also 'craft' over a stain depending on size and location. you'll have to give more info to get a better idea of options

Fix the water leak, The stains, I have found, do not dry clean out.

Water stains can be removed with Oxi Clean.

I had the same water stain problems on my '93 21ft. Sovereign. I hand washed the drapes in a bucket using Oxi Clean. A toothbrush is great for working in the Oxi Clean directly on the stained areas. Rinse in clear water and let them drip dry on a clothes line. My window coverings looked like new. Understand, this worked with my '93 fabric. Whether your window coverings are made of similar material is an unknown.
Good luck!

I don't think they are water stains they look more like light brown sun stains. They are located in front of the rear window. My Airstream has been stored under a cover it's entire life and shows no sign of any leaks.

Ditto on Juergen's oxyclean recommendations.

Even if they are not water stains from leaks, could also get these from humidity inside if the curtains have contact with the windows.

Regardless of the origin of the stains, oxyclean is likely to be your best bet, IMO
