Underbelly corrugated plastic WH23MBH

We have always owned Jayco travel trailers and we are looking at the WH23MBH. My big question is this.
We are 3 season campers and the unit is a 3 season camper but it has the underbelly. Besidess keeping things clean what else does it do? I see it as a welcome center to mice in the winter.

The underbelly protects the tanks, plumbing etc. from road debris while rolling down the road. It also assists in fuel economy [very little] by making it more streamlined. And unfortunately it can also be a mouse haven.

This concerns me a little...
Being new to having an underbelly covering, what seems to be the best practice for keeping those little critters out?

Thanks,

James

Additionally, the heat ducts are in the floor, and the underbelly creates the enclosed area that is supposed to help keep pipes from freezing.

James, do a forum search [mice] as there have been many discussions about it. I'd link you to one, but I keep screwing it up. Basically, a lot of people try and seal every nook and cranny underneath. I think if they want in, they're going to get in. Good luck in your search.

Thank you!
We live out in farming country, and the field mice are crazy here. Those skinny little things can fit through the tiniest crack! I spent the first couple of seasons of living here going to battle with them getting into my garage and my attic. I have finally gotten the house closed up, but they still get into the garage in winter sometimes.

Lord only knows what they would chew up if they invaded the trailer and had a bunch of babies....
