I wonder what happens to the trailers when not needed? Is there a massive trailer bone yard somewhere, kinda of like where they store airplanes when they are not needed?

I answered my own question, trailers are stored at Selma, Ala.; Madison, Ind.; Cumberland and Frostburg, Md.; Carnes and Purvis, Miss.; Edison, N.J.; Jasper and Texarkana, Texas; and Fort Pickett, Va.

And how nice will they be for Houston? I'm not sure the previous inhabitants left them nice and clean and smelling good?
