Warning! This trailer was not designed to be lived in year round. The concentration of gasses and toxins in the materials used in its manufacture can be harmful to respiratory systems if you spend more than 8 weekends a year inside our product.
I wonder if the warning labels themselves cause outgassing. That could be part of the problem. We need a label about the labels
the warning labels on this product (including this label) are known to cause various forms of respiratory issues as well as anxiety attacks. Furthermore, the physical space devoted to warning labels precludes the inclusion of really useful information.
My commute during the year of Katrina paralleled an interstate for a couple miles. Every day as I rode home, I'd see a steady stream of plain white trailers heading south. It was kind of impressive, really.
