Early interesting Cars:
I resent that statement, Trailer Trash. It is ignorant and snobbish. Some of the best and sweetest people I have known, lived in a trailer. I admit to being prejudiced. Sherry and I started housekeeping in a 26’ house trailer. In the USAF we bought first a 31’ trailer. Then after Jack Jr was born we bought a giant 43x8 trailer. We loved it. It fit our needs.
When we were transferred we did not have to pack up everything, arrange shipping, go to the new town and try to find an apartment we could afford. We just looked for trailer parks in the yellow pages made a list and picked one. It that was not satisfactory, we moved to another after a few months.
Not ours..... LOL
When we had a trailer, all furniture and appliances were there. It was ideal for lower paid young families. There was one payment for living space, furniture and appliances.
We have three trailer parks in this town. Two of them are exceptional. The other which is a stone’s throw from our house, is a little run down. However, it allows a warm dry home for those who can’t afford more, and maybe never can.
Florida is an odd place in reference to homes and value. In Florida you can see a million dollar mansion and have a trailer home a block away where the zoning allows. Of course there is zoning in most cities now that will not allow ‘manufactured’ homes just ‘anywhere’.
Not ours.either.... LOL
Tornadoes and hurricanes are thinning out the older structures. Nature has a way of updating the world. WE moved from tents and mud huts to Brick, wood and concrete. BUT trailers are still an option for low income folk who don’t want to be stacked in a ‘hood’.
PS: For you that do not know in most states the taxes are much less than a stick built house.
Actually for the past 22 years we have lived in a trailer but it has an engine. LOL
PS2: Some houses & yards look worse than any trailer park I have ever seen.
