  • Honestly I think trailer trash. I used to live in a trailer and I will never live in a trailer again. Where I lived my trailer park was full of low income drunks and people who did all kinds of drugs. I know a lot of trailer parks aren't like that but thats all i knew growing up which obviously left an impression on me.

  • I think "now here is someone who is not living beyond her means". Unlike many.

  • It brings to memory old episodes of Jerry Springer! I try to assess each person individually and not generalize too much but it's hard when it comes to this topic! They just have such bad reps! I have had some hard times financially and actually considered living in a "nicer" one but worked even harder to at least live in a decent apartment instead.

  • I think that that's what they can afford.. I also think that they aren't safe. I have seen a trailer fire and they go up like a christmas tree. They are also not safe in locations where they have frequent tornados. I think the laws should be changed on how they're built...

  • I would need more information. I do not judge people by where they reside.

  • I don't think ANYTHING other than maybe that was all they could afford and at least they have somewhere to live. Or they could be like my hubby's uncle. He owns his own trucking company, he built it from the ground up starting when he was 19 years old. When he got married, he and his wife bought a TINY 2 bedroom trailer with just enough room for a little kitchen (oven, small refrigerator, and one counter top and sink), small iving room (like just a couch, a chair, a tv). They raised their 2 boys in that little trailer, living there for probably 20 years while he made a FORTUNE with his trucking company. he started with one truck he drove himself and now has over 50 trucks with probably close to 100 drivers, and he makes some good money. He saved for that long so that he could pay CASH for their dream house and have it built for them to their specifications. Maybe those people living in that trailer are doing the same.

  • I lived in an old ass single wide when I was a kid, and I wasn't trash. I lived in a few apartments before we bought our home, and they sucked. No room at all. I don't think "trailer trash" when I see one. Especially one like mine...2200 sq. ft, 5 bedrooms, 3 baths. My house (yes, its a house) is just as nice or nicer than many of the homes of people I know.
