The inhabitants of Texas' smallest trailer fight the a town who wants to annex them. With everything else they're dealing with: being passed over again for a work promotion. Attempting to keep a feisty mother out of the local bar. Trying to keep Baby from taking his participation in a womanless beauty pageant way too seriously. Curbing the impulse to take in every stray cat, possum, and armadillo that wanders by. Being frustrated by the clients at the Stairway To Heaven Retirement Village. Constantly battling with the curmudgeon from across the road, who loathes their 'trailer-trash' ways. But these friends, enemies, and neighbors realize they'll have to work together if they have a snowball's chance to survive being swallowed up by 'the big guys.' The rollicking mayhem of this flat-out funny comedy escalates as the residents attempt to secede from Texas, discover a traitor in their midst, and turn the tables in a surprising and side-splitting finale. So come on over to Doublewide, where life is double the fun, double the joy, and more than double the laughter!
