I was very surprised to read this morning in a recent census report, where Nevada ranks in mobile homes per capita. At 6% of its residents living in mobile homes, we are 0.6% below the national average and equal with New Hampshire, ranking at #28. The #1 state for mobile homes per capita is South Carolina at 17.9%. And #50 is Hawaii with just 0.2% of its residents occupying mobile homes.
This is surprising to me because it seems like trailers are everywhere; not just in the cities, but even in the middle of nowhere.
I have always found kooky Americana very fascinating. I’d love to take a long road-trip through the country, seeking out things like the world’s largest Paul Bunyan or ball of twine. I’ve driven the 452 miles between Reno and Las Vegas a few times, and it is full of ‘kooky’ and lots and lots of trailers.
These pictures were taken in the tiny town of Mina, NV, which consists of a entrepreneurial green trailer, a couple weird signs, a few other generic buildings, and oddly enough, an airport. I guess by air is the only means a lobster could make its way to Mina, NV….
