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.

toxic Keystone RV on YouTube

Toxictrailers has been getting quite a few serious complaints from owners of Keystone RVs, and several have tested very high. CHeck out the new YouTube video on Marvin Motes experience with his Keystone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqp9DQlNBrw

We recently retested Marvin's Keystone and it is even higher than his original tests more than a year ago! It came in at .435 ppm, which is more than four times over the recommended limit for short term exposure of .1 ppm.

Trailer manufacturers tell people bothered by burning eyes, bloody noses and bad headaches in new trailers that you can just air out the trailers and the problem will go away in a short period of time. But we have tested RVs as old as 2002 that are still over .1 ppm. Clearly, in at least some cases the problem can get worse over time.
