I'm serious!! Dirt cheap!! They're on Ebay and incredibly cheap! Hubby and I were going to go look at them and even seriously considered buying one but we don't have any land to put it on.... it's that big! Like a small small house but one nonetheless. Now I'm telling you this just in case there's someone in dire need of a place to live and might have a place to put this trailer. Even if one has to buy some land to put this on, it's well worth the money!! They're '06's but have never been used so essentially, they're brand spanking new!! Go to ebay and in the search area, type in Fema trailers and you'll see it once you scroll down some. 2006 Gulf Stream Cavalier 2006 Gulf Stream Cavalier Travel Trailer FEMA Camper

Actually, I'm a bit pissy right now but I'll get over it. I always do. You see, we were going to get one and put it on our property for either one of my parents in case the other passes on so they wouldn't feel alone but have their own place but after talking to mom a couple of hours ago, she didn't want us to do that because she said she'll just rent a couple of rooms out of her house and so on. I told her we had talked about this a year ago and that she agreed, she wouldn't be able to keep up with that house if dad were to go first and now this crap. I'm so sick of it. Every suggestion or idea that we come up with, it's shot down every damned time and we're just plain sick of it. We've finally given up and are backing the rest of the way out. We're not going to help them at all until they ask for our help. I will go up to clean their house on Wednesday because after dragging it out of her (she has to ask, damn it) by asking her if she needed my help which she said she did and then rambled on about this and that on how she can get only so much done in a day because her body won't let her do it like she used to do before.... bla bla bla.... but we've quit helping UNTIL they ask. If they don't ask then they'll have to figure out how to get it done themselves. We're sick and tired of the ungrateful comments so it's ended once and for all.

Cats, it past due. U might as well stop it & let them ask for help if they need it. U are just banging your head againist a wall that's not going to move, They don't seem to appreciate all y'all have done for them. I couldn't do anything to please mine either so i know how u feel. U have got to get past the point of them keeping u upset all the time. It will drive u nuts if u let it.

You are so right Jo. What broke the camels back was their damned ungrateful comments. Hubby told them that the next time money is needed, he's going to be sure to have both of my brothers on the phone to hear everything that goes on. We had already given them $2500. as well as another $1100. to help them out and not have to pay us back. The $1100. was for the boat that dad got from my brother and sold it to hubby (dad says he was going to give it to him) and now we're hearing this sh!t, "we didn't ask anybody for any money" OR "we're not asking anybody for any money" and the same goes with help too, "we didn't ask anybody for help" OR "we're not asking anybody for help" It has me scratching my head thinking, "Well so much for being grateful!!" Not only that but also, nor did they give it back either! But I kept my mouth shut. That's the issue going on now, besides my brother and his darling kids. I am giving up. I have to. I'll never be what SHE wants me to be.... what ever the hell THAT is....

Thanks so much for this great information CatsandDogs. We don't need a place to live for ourselves as we just bought a house about 1.5 years ago for incredibly cheap, but not nearly that cheap. However, my brother and sister-in-law and their two little girls need their own place to live, they are living in my mother's house at this time along with my baby sister and their three dogs. If they can find a piece of land for cheap enough this would definitely be a viable option for them.

I'm glad to be of help in some sort of way! lol I'd hate for the idea that people who don't really need them to get them and sell them for a much higher price to make a profit when there's so many others that do need them and can't afford them. This way, they can put them in a trailer park or a camp ground and get on their feet that way without feeling like they're overcrowding someone else's home.

Thank you very much for the help, Cats. It was interesting to see how cheap they are offering these trailers online. I would have loved to had one for myself. We have a 5th wheel already, but having a cheap trailer such as this would be great to keep at a campground in a different state. I could just simply put it in Florida and put an rv covers on it to protect it! I have already researched this and I could get one for a cheap price at: http://www.makariosrv.com/rv-covers/

This might be a good option for some ppl as you said. Ppl do need to remember though that trailers are not the same as houses in that no matter how much remodeling or adding on you do to a trailer it will still depreciate faster and it won't be worth what you paid for it. Houses increase in value when you remodel or add on, trailers do not. But like you said, for someone who has no where to live, they'd be a good alternative until they decide they want something better. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

That is the truth twoey, trailers don't appreciate, quite the opposite but like you said, it's better than no home at all and really cheap to buy for a starter or "get back on your feet" home.

OH Cats! If you only new how important this information is to me. I am currently have to live in a camper. My husband got laid off this past March and things have been so rough. If these trailers are what I think they are then just MAYBE we can get the help from a family member to purchase one for us. I want to think you ever so much for this information. I am going to ebay right now and see what they got.

Hi Rosepedal.... No need to apologize! lol But I have to tell you, they ARE trailers but can be used as campers. The bedroom has a door appose to a camper with a draw curtain. If you open the page up, you'll see pictures of the trailers and the layout of them. If only I had some place to put it, I'd have one in a heartbeat! (meaning a campground somewhere)

They do look nice and sound like a great deal. I wonder if these particular trailers were some of the ones that were making people sick. You can buy anything and everything just about on ebay. I could buy one to put the house apes in if they still lived here. Take care Cats, as always its nice seeing you.

HEY POLLY!! Good to see you too!! It's been a while hasn't it? My excuse is, I had to take a mental break or I'd lose it. About these trailers, I'm not sure if they're the same ones or not but I think that once they're aired out and cleaned really good, the toxins would be removed but I might be mistaken. After all, I'm not a chemist. lol

As I stated under Oreo's response these Fema Trailers no matter what the cost are NO bargain...Report after report stated that high levels of formaldehyde were found in these trailers and people were getting horribly sick living in them--- http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/14011193/ Here's a small quote from that article A class-action lawsuit also has been filed in Louisiana, naming the federal government and trailer manufacturers as defendants and alleging that “the temporary housing is unsafe and presents a clear and present danger to the health and well-being of plaintiffs and their families.”

Hubby mentioned this in which I had forgotten about but he said we could open up the windows to air it out and then clean it up with our rug shampooer and cleaners and that should clean out the toxins but then again, maybe not. I honestly don't know.

I wonder if I could buy one and put it on my property and tear down my old house? Probably not, because of zoning in the city. It does sound like quite a deal.Makes me wish I had some land out in the country.

I wish I could tell you one way or another but you'd have to check it out with the city. Who knows? Maybe you could? Heck, the city might be happy for you to do that. lol No pun intended there GG.... As for living in the city, I couldn't. I've done that a couple of times and didn't like it one bit. I'm an ole country gal and in the country I am and am here to stay! lol

They look like houses inside for that's what they are, trailers for one to live in so it would be a great deal for anybody who needs one to use as a guest house or even a mother in law home. Happy mylotting to you too.
