We have spent the morning cleaning the 11 year old Riva transit cover. I managed to get hold of the same stuff you used.
The results aren't perfect by any means but we are really pleased.
As we are two old 'uns we couldn't face getting down on our hands and knees and decided to clean it in the living room.
I then worried about the fumes with my tropical fish so in the end we carried the dining table into the garden and used that to support the cover

what a remarkable transformation!
Ours is also due for a good clean, when we get time.
The solvent cleaner is so much quicker and easier than the cream cleaners!
Also once your done, give it a final go over with a Waterless Wash and Wax, the stuff from Aldi when they have it is good.

The other half had a wash n wax in his shed. Since we also wanted to wash the inside (where it gets put on the ground when we open up) we used that instead.
To be fair, we do try and fold in so the outside is on the ground but you don't always remember do you.
We were going to do the tent when we go away early July but as she is booked in for a bit or service I'm not sure whether they clean the canvas at the same time. I'm sure I've seen somebody, somewhere, say it was included.

though I may be wrong..

Let us know how you get along.
