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.

New RV test WAY over the limit...

THANK YOU FOR ALL OF THE INFORMATION YOU PROVIDED US WITH. I ORDERED THE KIT FROM ADVANCED CHEMICAL SENSORS, PLACED IT IN OUR 2008 MAX LITE TRAILER FOR TWENTY FOUR HOURS AND SENT IT BACK. THE RESULTS WERE WELL ABOVE THE RECOMMENDED LEVEL (0.453) INSTEAD OF (0.1)

AT THIS POINT, WE FEEL OUR TRAVEL TRAILER IS NOT SAFE TO USE AND WILL BE REQUESTING FROM THE MANUFACTURER A REFUND. I ALSO FEEL THAT MORE PEOPLE THAT ARE PURCHASING THESE TRAILERS NEED TO KNOW THIS INFORMATION. I HAVE A FEW CONCERNS: FIRST OF ALL, WILL THE MANUFACTURER HONOR OUR REQUEST, SECOND, WILL OUR OTHER TRAVEL TRAILER PURCHASERS BE DISCLOSED THIS INFORMATION?

Note from Becky: The contamination in this camper was so bad they were getting nosebleeds.
