Most FMCA members drive to the conventions in their motorhomes and stay on-site, having pre-registered for the event. The public is welcome to join in the excitement as well, by purchasing a pass at the public gate.
Fees may vary by convention, but daily admission to view the exhibits is typically $7 per person; children 12 and under are admitted free with an accompanying adult. Admission also is free for those with an active military ID.
A Daily Passport that provides admittance to the exhibits, seminars and entertainment also is available for $65 per person ($55 for FMCA members). Again, fees may vary by convention.
Motorhome owners who are not FMCA members yet, are invited to take part in all of the activities and to bring their motorhome and stay with the rest of the group on-site. The non-member admission price grants a one-year FMCA membership to the motorhome owner.
If you are interested in purchasing a motorhome for the first time, we recommend that you attend one of the seminars designed for new or future motorhome owners. Topics might include:
- types of motorhomes;
- fundamentals of the various systems found on motorhomes; and
- advantages — and disadvantages — of owning and operating a motorhome.
Come one, come all
If you do not yet own a motorhome, FMCA encourages you to experience the conventions. Walk through the display coaches. Marvel at their amenities. Talk with factory reps. Meet and mingle with motorhome owners. You're likely to be impressed by the magnitude of the event — and intrigued by the freedom and comforts associated with motorhome travel.
