ToxicTrailers.com was launched after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 when the government spent more than $2 billion on FEMA trailers with high levels of formaldehyde that sickened thousands of people. The FEMA trailer tragedy exposed what is a widespread problem in RVs, mobile homes, modular buildings and even conventional buildings that use pressed wood products. Unfortunately, as we approach the tenth anniversary of Katrina, formaldehyde regulations are not being enforced in the U.S., and people's health is at risk. If you are having burning eyes, congestion, sore throat, coughing, breathing difficulties, frequent sinus infections or rashes, and difficulties concentrating, you may have a formaldehyde problem.

RV making us sick
My wife and i purchased a new 39ft Hy-Line park model trailer and had it delivered and set up at Hidden Shores Rv resort in Yuma Arizona on March 15, 2007.As the temperature started to reach into the 90`s we noticed our eyes, nose burning with throat irritation. Now in July it`s 100 to 115 deg it makes it where we can`t even stand to be in our trailer. The manager says it will go away! That's not whatI paid for! I paid for a trailer! Not bad health for my family and friends! William Stills San Diego Ca.
