Why is that reassuring? Do you sleep better at night knowing there are fewer trailers in your state?

A curious thing about that list: None of the more tornado-prone states (Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois) are even listed among the states with the highest percentage of mobile homes! In other words, mobile homes aren't hit by tornados simply due to their plentiful numbers. The only logical conclusion is that their metal roofs attract twisters like magnets.

Yes. Less trailers = less meth & less incest.

It also means all eyes will be on me when I stroll the beach in my jorts, wife-beater, and mullet.

^ Well actually it can, well it could. It used to be bc its cheap housing and you could buy new at that. You could get a lot for your money but everythings changed now. Interest rates are the lowest now in how many years so lots of mobile home companies have filed for bkcy in the last few years.
