RV group won’t service ex-FEMA trailers

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — A state trade group says it will not service trailers formerly owned by the federal government that were recently auctioned off in the Ozarks.

The Missouri RV Dealers Association says it does not believe the Federal Emergency Management Agency trailers are safe.

Sheri Wheelen, president of the association, says the trailers don’t meet federal standards that the association must meet for vehicles it sales.

Rachel Racusen, a FEMA spokeswoman, says there isn’t sufficient evidence, such as vehicle identification numbers, to prove the trailers auctioned last month were FEMA trailers.

About 180 trailers were up for auction in the Ozarks on Oct. 23. The Springfield News-Leader reports that it’s unclear how many of the trailers were sold.
