It's not the trailer itself that is proof of poverty. I know people who live in trailers on their own very large lots (dozens or hundreds of acres). Many of those folks are not poor, especially the ones who live within 30-45 minutes of a major metropolis.

But, the folks I'm speaking of don't own the land their house is parked on, even if they own the house itself. It's a difference of degree rather than kind, I guess, but a pretty big one nonetheless.

Yup, that's a different situation. Ppl I'm talking about don't typically have too much land - we're talking 1-2 acres which we're talking about 2k per acre tops around here unless you're close to some body of water or a prime hunting land.
