Help! Thousands and thousands of tiny ants invaded the trailer!

Just got back from spending a week at Huntington Beach, SC. Got back to Ohio last night. This morning, went out to the driveway to unpack trailer and found thousands of ants crawling everywhere in the inside of the camper. Don't know where to start. Any thoughts on the best way yo get rid of them?

Mix equal amount of powder sugar and baking soda. Feed it to the ants it will work to kill them.

Ant Gel made by Raid. Comes in a tube and you squeeze out a pea size amount where ever the ants are. Unlike some of the other baits the ants are crazy about this stuff and will surround it and feed on it. They carry it back and infect the other ants and a day or two later they are gone. I've tried several and this is the best. I would also recommend spraying the entire inside of the trailer where the walls meet the floors and treating the ground outside where you park your trailer.

Ditto on the spray the ground around your tires and all supports.
A "food" hunt is also required.
They are in there for a reason (water or food).

I used a flea bomb over the winter when I saw ants getting in a seam that had come open around my cap. Repaired the seam and the flea bomb worked on the ants.
