Perhaps that's why the Museum of Modern Art collected that restored Bambi... as the centerpiece in it's new Trailer Trash Wing, underwritten by Ted Turner.

I suspect they'll also display a velvet painting of dogs playing poker.

I wish more people thought of them as white trash vacation homes-- then I might be able to get a really good deal on one, instead of seeing all of these high-priced as-found models driving up the market and leaving me Airstream-less...

Now, now y'all... calm down. My momma taught me that just 'cause someone's poor doesn't make 'em a point of scorn. Why... just 'cause you poor folks can't afford paint for yer trailers don't mean ya ought'a be disrespected. Why, sometimes, I even let folks like you park next to me in th' trailer park.

My roomate in grad school always purchased and stored odd foods. I had concluded that he just had very strange tastes. When we were about to go our separate ways, he finally told me that his tastes assured him that nobody else would be eating his food! His motto: never have something that somebody else wants.

I'm glad "Mr White Trash" doesn't know anything about Airstreams. That way I won't happen upon him and think that he has a clue!

I haven't run into an Airstreamer that I didn't have something in common with

I am a very private person by nature. However, these stories strike a cord that touches my soul.

I have also been referred to as "trailer trash". My love of vintage and my Argosy which I cherish, have apparently become a problem to those constructing $300,000.00 cottages.

Bought waterview (ocean) property in 1986, kids age 2 and 4. Rabbits, foxes, blueberries, raspberries, the beach, the ocean, campfires with weenies and marshmallows. Life was sane then.

Ocean properties became hot and the rich were buying everything. They tried to force/buy me out, but I was pissed! Money does not scare me. Thought to myself.......'ya don't like it now... wait to see whats next. I did not go my cottage lot for 3 years, and the grass grew and grew, and the landscaping ceased to exist. It became a boil on Moneybucks ass, and I loved every minute of it.

David and Goliath.

P.S. Moneybucks summer home has been for sale for three years and still not sold.

I still own my cottage lot.

I can see where that would rattle you cage.
Chalk it up to some mothers (or fathers) children and move on...

He could sell it for much more if packaged with Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock action figures.

The sad fact is that if this trailer is advertised as a Hallmark ornament, it get's very little bidding action. But call it an "O scale" Airstream and the bids go much higher. To anyone that's watching the attached photo's, it is obvious what these sellers are doing, but they seem to be able to dupe many people over and over and over again, because I have seen this type of description many times. Sad, but I guess that's what some people feel is an acceptible way to make a buck (or 20).

ummmm...

GOOD for you, Laura, and guess what.. we're not all white.

BUT I have often thought that a TRAILER TRASH PARTY would be a HOOT.. even polka-dotted people could have fun.

I just sent this guy the following message, just to jerk his chain a little. I'll post back if I get an answer.

"Don't 50's Airstream trailers have thirteen upper panels front and rear? That looks like a 90's Airstream. Are you sure it's a 50's?"
