    The reason why these trailers were not supposed to be sold for permanent housing was that they have high formaldehyde levels. Subsequent buyers were supposed to be notified about the risks from formaldehyde. The high formaldehyde levels are why these trailers were sold off by the government to begin with. It is just a shame that more than 100,000 of these toxic trailers have been sold to the general public. Many will change hands over and over again. Few subsequent buyers will be aware of the health risks. See the website toxictrailers.
