MCS SAFE 2006 HYUNDAI ACCENT FOR SALE: (ad posted 3/2014) 2006 Hyundia Accent and is a great running car with 98K miles. Never had any chemicals used on it. Gets great gas mileage. I'm asking $5,500 OBO. I'm from Oregon so it has Oregon tags and emissions good until Mar. 2016. The car is with me in AZ right now. I can be reached at 971-275-7618 or leave a message at 888-612-6664. I really hope someone else with MCS buys it because there are so few safe cars for us and I'd hate for it to get ruined for MCS folks if someone without MCS were to buy it. I can send photos by email or text on request.

MCS SAFE TRAVEL TRAILERS: (ad posted 3/2014) Order your own new ultra-light MCS safe travel trailer. Call 888-612-6664 My son, who is a mechanic and a welder, is building me a small travel trailer. I have arthritis and fibromyalgia, as well as MCS, so sleeping in my small car while traveling is just too painful. He knows the issues with MCS so is building my travel trailer with 100% non-toxic materials - mostly metal. We're putting a lot of thought into how to build it so that he can build similar ones if other MCS folks want to order one. It will be an ultra light trailer, under 1200 lbs. We are designing it to be flexible. Built in furniture will be multipurpose. And since most MCS folks have limited funds we are building a basic model to sell around $5,000 new. Folks can then add on features as needed to suit their own needs when they can afford to. Mine will probably be 5' wide and 10' long. The trailer tongue length will make it a 13' or 14' length for registration purposes. It will be tall enough to stand in and it will be as aerodynamic as possible to make it less expensive to tow. It will have water storage with a sink and shower; a food prep area (I use an induction hot plate myself) but folks can use whatever they want; a space for a frig (I will use a cooler until I can afford a small frig); a bed that can either convert to seating or a desk/table area for sitting and working; it will be insulated with one of the non-toxic insulation brands available and will have a heater and air circulation with ability to filter and cool as per individual need - most likely as an add-on. I'll probably use an organic cotton futon mattress in mine; but this is something we will leave to each owner to decide for themselves. I'd love to hear from others with MCS who might like a small travel trailer. Even if you aren't ready to commit to buying one feedback from others may help us design something to meet the needs of most MCS folks. I'll be posting videos as we progress with the project on: http://www.help4chemicalsensitivity.org
