Contest - How many dead mice have you found??

Hello all,

I would like to start a little contest...

Its called "how many dead mice have you found, while restoring your Airtsream?"


Only dead mice count!!


We are in a whole-monty on our 1971 Ambassador and we found that mice really love the insulation of our Airstream as a cosy warm nest. After removing 95% of the interior and frame insulation we are now upto

9 dead mice on our 29 foot mice nest...

most of them (4) were only scelletons, 3 were mummified and 2 were still quite smelly and rather fresh...

So, how many dead mice have you found??

Not an official entry, but we looked at one that had at least a half dozen in the owner's 5 gallon bucket "mouse trap." Plenty more potential customers as the interior was beyond description and we could HEAR them moving around inside just standing in the doorway. My wife didn't want to go any further than that due to the more than obvious "evidence", I was brave (stupid) and ventured to the rear where I (no kidding) almost fell through the bathroom floor. If anyone purchased that unit they would be the winner hands down.

and they love to tear it out and build a nest in your kitchen drawers!
stopped counting after 30....a barn yard is definitely NOT the place to store a trailer.....

Will My SHED do ???...

Hi All...
Jus wonderin, due 2 reasons beyond My control, of NOT ownin a Airstream ( YET ! )... I kinda Share all of Yours...LOL, would My SHED count, NOT sayin that Yr Beautiful A/S r like sheds, 4give Me if I gave than impression...LOL... My shed thinks, that 'cos My Family & I visit Yr Mouse in Fla:, they have the right 2 take over My shed...the critters have devoured almost everything they can, even the spare radio speakers are jus bare metal...the smell alone is awful, I left some garden weed killer on a wooden box, & it was almost all gone...& I found abt 45 dead mice, kinda sad realy, but its jus one of those things, they do Me NO harm, as I used 2 rear the TAME ones many years ago, U kn, when Noah was a Lad...LOL, but I guess in Yr van, IS a different issue, I would NOT like them in My home either... how do they manage 2 get in2 those places on Yr Vans, I thought they were water tight ???... I realise the damage they r capable of, & DO agree they MUST B Controled...I went 2 a boot-sale once, & one jumped out of a box of items I was gonna sell, ( well DID sell ...)... I jus prayed none had got into My dashboard & chewed the wires, as I load up the car the evenin B4 the sale, Grrr...but as luck has it, there was jus the stray one...Chris.....
