excellent capture and I, too, am sorry to hear of your neighbor's woes . . .what a heartache to finally have new digs to look fwd to and then have them immediately turned in to second hand by someone else's negligence.

My parents live in a very nice "Wheel Estate" in Florida.
They, and their neighbors, certainly do not feel "poor and less fortunate".

Actually per capita South Carolina has more trailers :)

Educated and Living in WV: Ashley is originally from here and I live in a trailer. That is my former trailer across from the one being put in. I'm glad you're educated and probably have a good job. Maybe you could send some leads to my email address. I have a two year degree and I'm working for $6.25 an hour.

I even went to Workforce's brand new multi million dollar building in Princeton to see about getting job training or further education and was told they have no money. Maybe, there's a reason there's a lot of undereducated people living in trailers.

And suppose I decided to major in computer science. Where would I get a job? Doing CAD/CAM for Massey? Unless you get into the health field, which I'm in, there is NOTHING.

Nobody is poking fun at anyone. Trailers are a cheap form of housing. And there are a lot of them here. I'm as sensitive as the next person to WV jokes but I don't think this was meant to be a put down and I actually thought it was kind of clever.

Btw, I took this photo because I thought the process of putting in a brand new trailer was exacting and difficult and I wanted people to see that. In this case, it turned out to be serendiptious because the trailer fell off the concrete supports which went through the floor and crashed into a tree which crushed the roof.

I gave this to the owner who had bought this with her savings from working for the same company I work for her entire career. She had to take these people to court to try to get them to pay for the damage. They had declared bankruptcy and she was out of luck.

End of rant. :)

TRAILERS = The LESS educated in this state have to live somewhere!!! ... Not every single human being in this state lives in a trailer you know. JUST BECAUSE they choose to LIVE in the state of West Virginia does NOT mean they have no other open options other than, "WHEEL ESTATE". Your comments are apparently meant to poke fun at the poor & less fortunate here possibly?????

Trailers = "Wheel Estate" in WVA
