Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Colonel Homer" has two scenes in a trailer park. In the first, there's a sign reading "14 days without a tornado." In the second, the sign's been updated to "2 days" and the park is littered with debris. The tornado goes unmentioned, as if it's business as usual in a trailer park.

* Notably averted in ''Film/{{Twister}}'', of all movies. Although tornadoes devastate several farmhouses, two towns, a {{drive-in theater}} and a whole bunch of empty fields, they never once whack a trailer park.

Tornadoes always seem to hit trailer parks. In RealLife, they're no more vulnerable to tornadoes than major cities, as the odds of a twister hitting any one particular area are relatively low. However, mobile homes are lightweight for buildings and not anchored to the ground, making them more vulnerable to a tornado's fury.

fury. (Some studies say that tornadoes tend to touch down just outside of cities because of the landscape change, and that's [[TemptingFate not an uncommon location for a trailer park]], but they still don't specifically go after mobile homes)

* There was one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' where Timmy meets Cosmo and Wanda's previous and infamous godchildren. One of them proudly takes credit for wishing that tornados ''always'' hit trailer parks.
