Field mice keep getting into our trailer/camper when not in use and making a terrible mess. Any suggestions of how I can get rid of them? Thank you!

I guess everyone is fearful of something. Me,I'm petrified of mice and rats. Awhile back someone on here posted"use peppermint oil". Since putting peppermint oil on cotton balls in several locations I have had no more mice! I still leave a trap or two but nothing in over a year.
The only way we kept our camper on the farm free of mice was to park it near the bale house where our outdoor cats lived. I rely on cats to get rid of mice. Nothing else is as efficient.
I stuff mouse holes with dryer sheets, new or used and that has repelled mice in my shed for years. I have also stuffed dryer sheets around a too-large hole for indoor plumbing in my upstairs bath, no more mice!
Peppermint is supposed to work, I have always had good luck with the de-con pellet trays, and stuffing holes with steel wool, sos pads, or aluminum foil. Just know that those radar things you plug in don't work. I have actually seen a mouse sit right next to one of those and not move.
