How do you keep mice out of camper?

We've been lucky not to have any so far.

This works well for me... We have about 6 barn cats and no mice in the camper, barns or house. Before we had the "farm", I used drier sheets and that always worked too.

Oh k here is what I did. Goto to Home depot get yourself a couple of can of foam and go under ur rig and spray the foam into every hole you see. Then go inside your rig put steal wool inside every hole you have and pray the foam down inside where you put some steal wool. Mice don't like steal wool. Worked for me. Then get some D-Con and put it under your rig to make sure you don't get anymore mice. Now I am mice free!

Easy, cat in, mice out. Works best if you don't feed the cat.

We had a mouse our first winter, used the irish spring and dryer sheets (also forgot to take out a rice bag). We put out poison and cotton balls with peppermint oil, sealed all the holes we could find and leave it with a guy who has a weasle in his yard. Can't tell you what worked but we have no more mice.

This is the first year I've ever had any mice since 1994. This is also the first year I've EVER used dryer sheets. Caught 1 in the toilet (drowned in the pink stuff) sitting in the bottom of the toilet. Found a nest in the basement so got rid of that. Still more mice. Put in 2 traps in the basement closed the doors to go inside... Snap...... SNAP. Caught 2 in the time it took to close both doors. I HATE mice!!!! I think I would rather get kicked in the &@#$$ than to have mice in my camper..... Now there is poison and more traps...
