    We were surprised to see so much mouse poop all around the popup this spring. But before we can have a look inside, I need to modify a new Harbor Freight trailer dolly so that it’s tall enough to safely reach our Rockwood 2280bhesp. My 9 year old daughter concepted the design. I did my best to create her vision :) This is episode 1 of popup prep 2021! Happy camping!

    Great work. Nice video


    Report back on the mouse droppings when you open up the trailer.

    I think my wife was close to tears with joy :) We did not need anymore challenges with this camper.

    I stay on top of mice. I keep traps set year round inside and around the perimeter of my TT. I also keep bait enclosures in the area. Hardly a month passes that I don't catch a mouse in one of the garages or the TT.

    I think they were just after the blanket, they probably wanted the soft stuff for their nests. Glad you didn't have any inside!

    We did find a nice blanket-thread nest :) When we first got the camper, I worked on the underside of the popup and sealed all of the holes I could find, but mice are incredibly good at finding a way. Ya never know :)
