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.

RV tests at .312 ppm

Right after hurricane Katrina My family purchased an RV for recreational purposes. While on camping trips my nieces have been complaining about burning eyes and not feeling well. I think our trailer has the same problems as the FEMA trailers. As a consumer what options do we have to rectify the problem?

Note: This trailer tested very high at .312 ppm or more than three times over the maximum level people should be exposed to. Consumers have few options because trailer manufacturers have refused to take back faulty products or fix the problem. Absent government regulations on formaldehyde, the trailer manufacturers continue to poison people by selling them trailers high in formaldehyde.
