FEMA Trailers For Sale

FEMA has unloaded over 140,000 travel trailers purchased after natural disasters in America that were built and ordered for temporary houses but now labeled 'not suitable for housing' by the US Government. Many of these travel trailers were moved into contaminated flood zones where displaced residents used them while their neighborhood was cleaned up and all housing structures were sanitized. Even though residents were warned against reclaiming personal items contaminated by floodwaters, they could not resist bringing momento's, clothing and other personal items into these campers. 

Here are some considerations before purchasing one of these travel trailers:

  • The US Government labeled them 'not suitable for housing' before selling them to resellers
  • The US Government chose not to sell these FEMA units directly to the public
  • Flood Zones are Bio-Hazard areas
  • Most FEMA built trailers are not self-contained, therefore not suitable for camping
  • Many FEMA trailers were not properly maintained and have roof leaks and missing parts and no keys
  • Most FEMA resellers will only sell them 'as is' meaning the buyer assumes all risks
  • Many FEMA trailers have missing titles
  • Most of the trailers have not been tested for LP leaks, creating a potentially life-threatening situation

Therefore, we do not recommend purchasing FEMA trailers.

Fema Trailer Warning

Bob Hurley RV does not purchase FEMA travel trailers for resale to the public. Occasionally we may trade for a FEMA trailer in the process of the daily RV business but want consumers to realize that FEMA trailers are NOT normal recreational vehicles sold by dealers today. Many FEMA trailers are missing costly components that prevent the vehicle from being used for recreational purposes such as holding tanks, RV toilets and RV refrigerators. Some trailers may have natural gas hookups instead of the RV LP gas hookups and appliances. These appliance will have to be modified or replaced for recreational travel.
