    For the canvas, it depends on what the material is. Do you have the manual or know the make/model/year of your camper (hint: if you add that info to your signature line, it's always available to the rest of us.) Usually a mild cleaner, such as Dreft is recommended. Sunbrella recommends one of the 303 fabric treatments to re-waterproof after cleaning.
    303 products are also great for the vinyl.

    For "canvas" (Coleman's are Sunbrella) I use Woolite as recommended by Sunbrella. For vinyl, I use automotive type vinyl cleaners (Meguiar's, Mother's, etc). After cleaning, I use 303 Fabric Guard for the Sunbrella, and 303 Vinyl protectant for the vinyl.
    Be careful- there are different 303 products for specific uses.

    I do similar to McFlyfi. Woolite inside but just soap and water outside since my vinyl is still in excellent shape. 303 is great stuff.
