Yes and these trailer trash people are despised by normal dutch citizens because the Dutch state has special taxation agreements with the residents of the trailer camps. In the end they only pay for about 5 - 10 % tax (referring to Vinkenslag: Maastricht)

Are they well integrated into the society and usually do honest jobs or are they a problem like Rumanian gypsies?

They aren't that big of a problem, mostly they do shady business. But the police forces are turning a blind eye because the state is not very ethical in getting money from the citizens so they don't monitor them but just make tax agreements (to, at least, get a profit from their shady businesses).

I don't know of anyone living in a trailer (except gypsies). Where do you even get such data?

He probably saw a film about trailer rednecks in the US, and though it would be a good idea to have some trailer trash of his own in Holland who travel to Poland to buy fireworks...

Just be glad you don't have them in your country. Not that they are causing a lot of trouble but they aren't making a honest buck most of the time. There aren't much of them either, trailer camps in the Netherlands are situated around the bigger cities.

They are indeed, in own country, mostly known of their second hand car sales.

So maybe they are both Dutch-American trailer trash from Arizona but now in Maastricht, because the last time I checked, Holland was still in the Euro, and they have received an invitation from the States to join the US$ instead...

Don't be frustrated with the fact that uk is losing cultural influence in europe and the rest of the world.

Then you should know that we have Kampers all over the Netherlands, from Friesland to Limburg. They are very much comparable with trailer trash.

Bullshit. The only trailer trash that Holland produces are the ones who are blocking the roads in Europe with their caravans in the summer season...

I get called that here in Austria sometimes. But it helps being both British and Dutch (got a Dutch passport, lived in the UK before I moved here, my dad is English)
It´s one of the few Dutch words they know. You can always recognize them, they are loud, drive badly, and if they don´t speak German, they will speak English with a very bad attempted Robert de Niro accent...

@ Road UK
You must accept that American slang words are used extensively to describe similar situation in other countries. White trash mean a certain kind of people who you can find in every country and bucks is a slang for money, in whatever currency they are, not just USD.

@moderators:
This off topic discussion should be moved to the RRA and not deleted like the recent discussion about WWII on this thread.

Alternatively you could say money and people living in trailers. Also nicer for people who are not familiar with American slang. Besides that, we are in Europe.

"people living in trailers" has different semantic meaning than "trailer trash", same goes with the money versus buck.

If you mind the meaning, say it directly...

There are more Belgians living in trailerparks then Dutch I think. Especially in the provinces of Antwerp and Limburg. But they are not neccesairly poor people or scum and those trailers can be quite luxurious and most of the time people have structures build on to them making them bigger...

This is Paso de las Damas between Argentina and Chile. No road, just for 4X4 vehicles.
It lies 3560mt a.s.l., but there is no border patrol or anything. Just the mark sign.
