This is a song i have heard which fits us Trailer trash er, um, i mean
mobile or motor home residents....does any have this? I heard it on KPIG radio is calif, and is likely by a local musician. (Joe Pecan? Joe McCann?)

Mine is not a Winnebago, but then there is the song for Airstreams..
"Living in Aluminum" by the Trailer Park Troubadors a.k.a. Troubs

LIVING IN ALUMINUM
Antsy McClain?

There's a lot to be said about contentment.
Some folks never get enough.
Let me ask you honey, which is better:
A mansion full of money, or a trailer full of love?

There's a lot to be said about acceptance,
Liking who you are, and having peace of mind.
The secret's being happy with your lot in life, baby,
And I'm pretty happy here in lot number nine.

Living in aluminum.

I don't need a house of vinyl.
I don't need a house of wood.
There ain't no better way to test your mettle
Than in a semi-precious metal neighborhood.

There's a lot to be said about conviction:
Live the golden rule with God on your side.
But don't forget another code of living:
The aluminum rule: thou shalt enjoy the ride!

Having it all is like putting up a wall around you.
You'll be a slave to the treasure as you measure every nickel and dime.
Soon you're gonna see a big pile of debris surround you.
And I'll be sure and send you a postcard from Freedom some time.

O.K. i have found the source! This quote is from a review:
"Joe Paquin, brings his carnival of 'Hippie Billy' Americana Rock ...."Little Winnebago", is an upbeat Zydeco influenced song about crusin' around with 'your happy honey bear' with a 'fridge full of beer and the pickles and the cheese. It's so catchy that it makes
me want to bounce around behind the wheel, crusin' and grinning & singing along. It is on his new Cd, "Only Human"."

Open mike: Do you mean you weren't looking for LIVING IN ALUMINUM? If not, your first message confused me.

the song i actually (still) looking for
is about a Little Winnebago...with my happy honey bear
by Joe Paquin

but while looking for it i came across the OTHER trailer song..

Living in Aluminum--which is on you tube, but the link i posted
doesn't seem to work now. Do you think Antsy looks like buddy hollly!?

I live in an airstream, but it is a fibreglas one, not al-u-min-ium.
and it is not a "trailer" but a "motor home" like a Winnebago...
there are 2 small Winnebagos, the LeSharo and the Rialta. Some
call them Mini Winnies...

Joe Paquin's album "Only Human" can be found on CDBaby.

I transcribed this from a sample of LITTLE WINNEBAGO found on that site:

...A little Winnebago with a toilet and a shower,*
And a pull-out awning with a good spare tire,*
A jacked-up jack and a big gas tank,
A cute little sink with a hot-water line.
There's nothin' like a little Winnebago.
There's nothin' like a little Winnebago.
There's nothin' like a little Winnebago with your happy honey bear.
There's nothin' like a little Winnebago....

[*With the right accent, you can make shower ("shar") rhyme with tire ("tar").]
