This is honestly the best way! We used to keep ours in a shed and we have tried Mint, Cloves, Dryer Sheets, Moth Balls, poison, sprays and traps. None of them will keep all mice away. One day at the Hardware store an Ole"Timer told me that mice will do everything they can to avoid rocky open areas, so now mine sits outside on a rock pad with a cover on it, plus the addition of 6 farm cats. We haven't had a mouse inside the camper in 3 years now.
I understand that it's not possible for everybody to do this, but if you want to keep mice away and you can, this is the best way.
If you have no choice on where you store your camper and you continue to have problems every year no matter what you do, another piece of good advice is to put the bait in the bottom of a tall trash can and place it at the end of a counter. The mice can't resist, they will jump in and then they can't get out. You still have to deal with the mice, but at least they are all dead in one place and you don't have to look all over the camper for them.
