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.

Comments on Huckabee video

This comment was posted on YouTube regarding the Huckabee YouTube interview (link on the right of this page):

Same problem with RVs for many years. My '02 travel trailer is still toxic with formaldehyde. Last fall we tested the air in the unit and it was much higher than acceptable. Even 6-7 yrs after manufacture, this RV is still pushing out fumes. The industry has been well aware of this problem and keeps it quiet. Good old USA, anything to make a buck, even when it hurts folks.
