About FMCA

Family Motor Coach Association

The Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA) is an international organization for families who own and enjoy the recreational use of motorhomes. With approximately 75,000 active member families, FMCA is the world’s largest motorhome owners group.

Since 1963 FMCA has issued more than 425,000 memberships to families who look to the association as their source of information about all facets of motorhome ownership and travel.

Membership categories

  • Full/Family (F) membership is open to any person or family owning at least one-third interest in a qualifying motorhome.
  • Family Associate (A) membership is open to Full/Family (F) members who no longer own a qualifying motorhome.
  • Commercial (C) membership is for dealers, suppliers, manufacturers, campgrounds, service facilities and other firms servicing the motorhome owner or the motorhome industry. 

FMCA's purpose

The purpose of FMCA is to organize social activities, exchange motorhome information, and supply benefits made possible, in part, by collective purchasing. The interest of the Association also extends into the area of political and legislative action. FMCA supports recreation programs and the legal rights of RV owners.

Greatest benefit

FMCA takes pride in the merit of its many membership benefits, which include a mail forwarding service, an emergency medical evacuation program, international conventions, chapter and area rallies, and a free subscription to Family Motor Coaching magazine.

One of the greatest benefits of FMCA membership is the opportunity it provides for enjoying the fellowship of friends from all over the country who share a common interest, motorhoming. The Association is rich in the tradition of FMCA members extending hands of genuine friendship to one another.

FMCA recognizes approximately 500 chapters across the United States and Canada. Many of them encompass specific or general geographic regions. Others consist of FMCA members who own a particular brand or model of motorhome. And still others are based on a common interest, such as music, sports, coach conversions or amateur radio.

FMCA members can be identified by the FMCA “goose egg," or membership emblem, that many members display on their motorhome. This oval plate, embossed with the family's membership number, opens the door for many friendly encounters while traveling.

Staff

FMCA is owned by its membership, governed by elected officers and has a national office that conducts its business affairs. The staff establishes a liaison with the motorhome industry, helps members to organize geographic and special interest chapters, publishes a monthly magazine, and coordinates FMCA motorhome conventions and annual membership meetings.
