Do other countries have trailer parks?

Or is that a uniquely American thing?

by Anonymousreply 903/17/2013

I was thinking of the same sort of thing for homes in England. Why do they all look like public housing? Are there in single family homes that look like American homes?

I haven't the slightest idea, but there are very exclusive areas, like the street on which Richard and I reside and where we raised our Sheridan.

He's in university, you know.

We have some in Canada but not nearly to the extent you have in the states.

In the British Isles, I know there are Gypsy and Traveler trailer parks.

They have them in the UK (American style trailers) but they're mainly used as "holiday homes" for people who want to have a cheap residence by the sea during the summer.

The Irish Travelers do live in caravan settlements, but these are usually the type you can actually pull behind your car, not the "mobile homes" that are found in the US which are stationary in a trailer park.

I'm also curious about English houses. They windows are tiny and dismal looking and the rooms are smallish and seem to always have doors closing each room off from a hallway.

They're called caravan parks in the UK, rather than trailer parks. And they are temporary housing, not permanent housing developments like in the US. They mostly are used or camping at seaside areas.m

A caravan park in the UK is like an RV park in the US. They don't have stationary trailer parks.

Doesn't Rooster live in a trailer in "Jerusalem"? Or did he live in a van?
