Storing Food in a Travel Trailer

We just bought a 5th wheel trailer. My question is after we camp do you leave canned foods in the trailer or do you take everything out each trip?

If you're going to be storing the trailer where it might be subject to extreme temperatures (freezes or high heat-high humidity) you probably should take your canned goods in to the house between trips.

By 'canned goods', you do mean tins, right? Because the answer for 'canned goods' like the ones home-preserved in mason jars is different - if you're talking about home-canned goods, you definitely want to be sure the jars aren't exposed to temperature extremes to avoid bursting!

We do not store any food items in our travel trailer. We have a large plastic storage bin we store canned goods, tea, coffee, pantry items plus all paper goods are stored in another small bin.

We found that some times there might be a rodent or insect problem in the trailer. When we are ready for a trip, we pack the storage bins, unload into cabinets while camping only.
