So the first recommendation would be to completely seal any cracks, crevices, holes, etc, where they can enter from the outside. Use Stuffit Copper Wool or Pest Plug Coarse Stainless Wool to do this. Ordinary steel wool won't work in most cases.
Next, install bait stations around the outer perimeter of the trailer - usually 2-3 stations will be sufficient. Rodent Bait Stations will give the mice a place to eat and sleep. Use Contrac or Ditract and it will kill them.
Indoors, ONLY use traps or glue boards to trap and kill mice. NEVER use baits indoors or inside the trailer. If you use traps, then there is no fear of harm to pets. If you use baits, the rat or mouse can die inside the attic or wall and create a horrible odor for a few weeks. If your pets eat the bait, then it's a $1500 trip to the Vet. Easy lesson, never use rodent poison inside the trailer.
So basically indoors use snap traps, glue boards, etc. If you can't get access to the ceiling, that's fine, they have to come out for food. Leave all the cabinet doors open and use several snap traps and glue boards to catch them.
When the inside problem is solved, keep the traps outs just for good measure. The outside rodent bait needs to be changed at least 1 time per month. Outside control is where it all begins
Another good idea is to use bait stations around the trailer, and then another perimeter layer of bait stations around the fence, driveway, etc. This is more or less what food service facilities are required to do. It's a double layer of protection so to speak.
