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.

2005 Jayco has obvious formaldehyde problems

To Whom it May Concern:

I have a 2005 Jayco Jayflight 31 BHS with obvious formaldehyde fume problems. I have just ordered two separate test kits for measuring the levels of gas inside the trailer at different temperatures. I am very concerned for the health of my young son and wife, both of whom have asthma, allergies and chronic recurrent respiratory infections since the purchase of the trailer. I have exhausted the "remedies" given by the dealer and online advisors to no avail. Where do I go from here? Our dealer plays dumb, Jayco denies any problem with fumes and I just want a trailer that's not toxic and potentially a hazard.
