With FMCA only open to class A coach owners, they were really limited themselves to growth. Well, FMCA has finally caught up with the growing trend of younger RVers, families and in this case, non-class A coaches.
Announced just a little while ago, FMCA is now open to enrolling Towables, 5th wheels and all other types of RV’s out there.
They have some great benefits such as a medical emergency service, roadside assistance, tire program among many others.
This is not an endorsement for FMCA nor their services. On the contrary, we are not even members currently. Although we may rejoin :)
We just thought this was worth mentioning as this can have an impact on the RVing community for the positive and we like to bring you positive stories.
So check them out if you are interested. They may have some benefits that fit your needs.
We have a quick video below with us talking about this new change.
Hope you like it and maybe we’ll see you at a rally in the future! FMCA.com
Hi David and Brenda,
Great video regarding FMCA. Some members were against the inclusive expansion but it was absolutely necessary from a business stand point. An increase in membership is good for all. Have a great summer, hope to see you in January in Quartzsite.
Thanks for this update David/Brenda, one more thing to think about after getting our ‘new to us’ first motorhome…a Phaeton, so hope to see you all down the road, or at a rally one day! Love your video’s David, as we’ll soon be wanting to upgrade batteries as well as add a solar system, so I’ll have to get on my research! I’m subscribed, and have been for some time, amongst many other ‘full timers’, albeit we still have our sticks & bricks here in south-western Canada.
Have a great summer!
As class A owners and with the tremendous expansion of RV ownership, our interest in organizations is focused on folks who own similar types of coaches as ours to exchange ideas, resources, etc. Yes, we are retired and have found excellent information on IRV2 and through our connection with others who own the same type of coach we have. The best of luck to FMCA, but we’ll pass.
Yes, it surely is not a move all will like. But the sad news, like we said, is it either needed to change or it would likely end just going away. New Class A coach buyers just were not joining based on how it was perceived from their on-line content to the print material. IMHO. We left based on the feeling of being out of place even though we were very much welcomed by the Sierra Ramblers group and are still friends with them today. Yes, you can find all types of Class A owners that have groups for the type of rig you may own. We wish the FMCA luck with this change for we could see something needing to be done years back. Heck, we were even FMCA Greeters! Does Brenda not look so cute in that hat? :)
Hi David and Brenda, I’ve been a FMCA member for 3 years now. As such, I participated in the vote to expand RV vehicles to include travel trailers. I agree with your analysis, FMCA as an organization was rapidly dying.
FMCA’s tire advantage program most definitely saves a great deal of money when purchasing a set of 6 tires for a Class A Diesel Pusher.
Lastly, FMCA’s monthly publication is filled with many interesting as well as much needed RV safety related articles.
