Most FMCA members will drive to the Indiana State Fairgounds 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 tickets at the public gate.
On Monday, Aug. 27, from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., a special preview of only the motorhome exhibits will take place. The regular hours for subsequent days are as follows:
- Motorhome displays — Aug. 28, 29 and 30, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- RV accessories, supplies, and components — August 28, 29 and 30, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The daily fee for viewing motorhomes and booth displays is $7 per person; children 12 and under are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. Individuals with an active military ID will be admitted free also.
A Daily Passport that provides admittance to the exhibits, all seminars, and evening entertainment is available for $65 per person ($55 for FMCA members). The admission fee on Monday covers admission on Tuesday as well.
Free public parking is available off of East 38th Street, across from fairgrounds Gate 3. Public gate admission passes can be purchased at Gate 3.
Own an RV? Stay with us
Those who own a motorhome or other self-contained RV are invited to take part in all of the activities and to stay with the rest of the group at the fairgrounds. The gate price for non-FMCA members is $240 per RV (with two people); this non-member fee automatically grants a one-year FMCA membership or Family Motor Coaching magazine subscription to the RV owner. The FMCA member price is $190.
Convention attendees can check out the latest features and innovations that are available in motorhomes. Some of the displays include production-line units. Others feature demo custom-built coaches for uses ranging from family camping to transporting high-tech business equipment, or for use as conference coaches. A variety of motorhome styles and a broad price range are represented.
Whether or not you own a motorhome, FMCA encourages you to experience the Indianapolis 2012 event. 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.
