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.

"scrap" trailers being renovated and used to house people
I talked to to a businessman that sells RVs (recreational vehicles/trailers) and parts. He said that now his major business has become parts sales for FEMA toxic trailers. These are Individuals who purchased scrap FEMA formaldehyde trailers that FEMA tested for toxic air quality and ruled uninhabitable. The purchasers who are seeking parts so they can live in or sell these toxic trailers to unsuspecting victims.
