Keeping Mice Out of Pop Up Camper

We have had 2 pop up campers in the past 3-4 years, both given to us by my brother-in-law. Every time we store them for the winter and open them up the next year they have been damaged by mice. Somehow they get underneath the camper, climb in and basically chew the canvas up and make holes in it. The bed cushions are fine. It's just the canvas that has holes in it. Is there something we can use when we store it for the winter to keep the mice out? Any suggestions would help.

I have always put dryer sheets around the inside of our camping trailer. In the cupboards and storage areas, everywhere. Mice seem to dislike dryer sheets. We have never had any signs of mice. A bonus is your camper smells good when you reopen it.

When we lived on a grain farm, and parked the camper far from the house, mice invaded it. We had at least a dozen outdoor cats, and when we parked the camper close to the house where the cats hung out, we never had any trouble with mice.


The cats did their job. One thing NOT to use is moth balls. The smell will permeate the space, and is far worse than mouse damage.
