* The Drive-In level of ''VideoGame/RedneckRampage'' has a trailer park with two tornadoes swirling around, They're needed to get a secret in the level, but it's not easy.

* 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.

** Referenced in another episode when, while Timmy is moonlighting as a superhero called the Masked Magician, a tornado does end up heading for the trailer park that Timmy's friend Chester lives in. He even screams "They tried to warn me, but I didn't listen!"

* ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButtHead'' once got stuck in a trailer park during a tornado. They managed to survive the experience, and the trailer containing the chicks they had been trying to score with ends up in [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Oz]].

* Tornadoes seem to hit Camden pretty regularly on ''MyNameIsEarl''. In fact, there was a whole episode where several came through, one right after another, causing all sorts of mayhem.
* This is referenced in an episode of ''WKRP in Cincinnati'', in which Johnny Fever tells Andy that he'd been in a mobile home when a tornado struck. "And I think God must hate mobile homes, because in a tornado they get very...mobile."

* Referenced in "Trailerhood" by Music/TobyKeith: "When the storm starts gettin' bad and you hear those sirens hummin' / Grab a six-pack and a lawn chair, there's a tornado comin'."
** Which is much HarsherInHindsight considering his hometown of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moore,_Oklahoma Moore, Oklahoma]] was struck by devastating F5 tornadoes in 1999 and 2013. At least half of the town was leveled during both tornado outbreaks and dozens of people were killed (including several schoolchildren).

* ''KingOfTheHill'' episode had Luanne's former trailer park home hit by a tornado.
* Parodied in ''EekTheCat''. A bunch of government officials have a discussion about what to do about a tornado that is heading towards a trailer park. But suddenly one of them panics and reveals there '''isn't''' a trailer park in the path of the tornado. This results in the government actually dumping trailers near the tornado so this trope plays straight.
