About ToxicTrailers.com

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.

wife sick since moving into Fleetwood

Subject: FEMA TRAILER

Can you please tell me who I can get to run a test for FORMALDEHYDE in a FEMA trailer that I bought from GSA. My wife is a nurse and she stays in the trailer while she is working. Our home is too far to drive back and forth every day. The trailer is a 2006 Fleetwood Morgan. As I was looking at NBC news last week and the trailer that was used on the news cast showing the inside is a twin to the one that I have. My wife has been sick every since she moved into the trailer but we had no reason to think that was the reason. If there is someone that i can get to test the trailer, I would like to get it done as soon as possible. Thank you so much for your time, Charles

Response from Becky: A test kit is on the way.
