then select, trailers and tractors

Know anyone who's purchased one of these?

I wonder what the "reserve" price is?

Even if the trailer is trashed, I don't think it would take more than a couple thouseand to refurb it back to a decent camper.......

I know of a couple of people that said FEMA are offering this trailers for 600-1000 dollars in New Orleans if you go and pick them up. Some are covered in mold and have been lived in for two years. I don't know how true that is, but I do know they do not have holding tanks on them.

The ones available through the information below are new and unused. The info below is from an email I received from PA. This obviously does not apply to John Q Citizen and may not be the same ones but anyone that is an approved agency should be able to get one through their state EMA.



FEMA Trailer/Mobile Home Fact Sheet -
Pennsylvania Plays an Integral Role in the Release of Trailers for Donation • As part of NASASP (National Association of State Agencies for Surplus Property), the Pennsylvania Department of General Services leads the effort to encourage FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) to donate surplus trailers and mobile homes from Hurricane Katrina to eligible organizations here in Pennsylvania and throughout the country.
• Prior to releasing the trailers and mobile homes for donation, FEMA had been selling them through an on-line auction, realizing only a small percentage of their value through the sales.


• In July, 2006 NASASP, GSA (General Services Administration), FEMA, and all members of the Arkansas Legislative Delegation hold a conference call in which the Congressional Delegation and NASASP are outraged over FEMA’s continued trailer sales.

• In August, 2006, Federal law makers amend the Stafford Act requiring that FEMA donate the trailers and mobile homes through Federal Surplus prior to offering them for public sale. • In March, 2007, the first FEMA Travel Trailers are ready for screening. Approximately 400 trailers are allocated to Federal and State agencies.

• In April, 2007, six sites are ready for screening across the United States. Pennsylvania is receiving trailers and prepared to screen mobile homes as they come available.




Requirements to Receive a Travel Trailer or Mobile Home



• Your agency must be a current donee organization approved by GSA rules and regulations to receive Federal Surplus Property. Please email our office to ensure that your file is current.
• Obtain the approval of your governing body to acquire one or more of these units.
• Submit a corrected request and letter in order to change the number of units from your original request.

• Notify us of the anticipated location of your trailer/mobile home for direct shipment via the trucking company.
• As with all Federal Surplus Property, your organization must place the unit into use within 12 months; utilize the unit for your organization only - no personal or commercial use is allowed; and utilize the property for the 18 month restriction period, at which time the title transfers to the donee organization.


Travel Trailer and Mobile Home Specifics


• Travel Trailers: Service and Handling Charge is $4,500.00. Pennsylvania will not know the width or length until the units are awarded to us. Your organization can refuse to accept a trailer that will not meet your needs IF YOU REFUSE PRIOR TO MAKING DELIVERY/PICK uP ARRANGEMENTS. Demo units are available for preview in Harrisburg and Hermitage.

• Mobile Homes: Service and Handling Charge is $8,000.00. We will try to match your requested mobile home length if possible. Your organization can refuse to accept a mobile home that will not meet your needs IF YOU REFUSE PRIOR TO MAKING DELIVERY/PICK UP ARRANGEMENTS.

Picture 7, Picture 8, Picture 9, Picture 10, Picture 11.

• We will call or e-mail each donee as units are available. Your organization will not be able to select from those units available as FEMA allows only 10 working days from the award of the trailers and/or mobile homes to Pennsylvania to delivery to the donee. We will work from your survey and can adjust to your needs when we contact you for delivery confirmation.


• This charge includes the Service Charge and Freight from the screening site to your physical location.


• This charge DOES NOT INCLUDE siting or set up charges. The donee is responsible for those charges after delivery.


• We will bill from your signed invoice as with all donated property.







In the past, Pennsylvania donees have utilized these units for class rooms, offices, police command posts, emergency services, clinics, food and clothing distribution to the homeless and needy. As with all Federal surplus property, your imagination is your best tool!
