No-Bake Energy Bites — The Perfect RV Trip Snack!June 10, 2019These babies are a must have for any RV trip snack. Just like almost everyone these days, we are trying to eat better. We’re trying to limit our processed foods and keep healthier options close at hand. Boy, some days are better than others for sure. Many of our trips are a 3- to 6-hour drive, which can lead to mindless eating. I’m the flight attendant while Mark drives, so I’m the one that fetches coffee, water, and snacks....
RV Holding Tanks 101June 3, 2019FMCA and the “RV Doctor” Gary Bunzer present RV Holding Tanks 101.

Celebrating Patriotism with FMCA's Arkansas Travelers ChapterMay 30, 2019Our Fourth of July celebration will have a much deeper meaning for Sondra and me this year. Why, you ask?

Gainesville: A Medal of Honor Host City Since 2001, this small town of 16,000 residents has been inviting all living U.S. Medal of Honor recipients to annual events to recognize and thank them for their serv....
Visiting Canyon de Chelly National Monument with DogsMay 28, 2019Our travel plans had us going from Phoenix, Arizona, to Moab, Utah, a route we had already explored last year. Instead of doing the same drive up U.S. 160, we decided to detour just a bit east on U.S. 191 to see something new — Canyon de Chelly in northeastern Arizona. (Let's pause here to get something out of the way... The pronunciation is "de-SHAY.” Oops! We had been pronouncing it "Chel-ly" for an embarrassing....
The Perfect Dish for a BBQ, Potluck or Picnic: Broccoli SaladMay 20, 2019I still remember when this broccoli salad entered my life. The day was Father's Day, 15 years ago or so. We were having a pool party with several friends and neighbors for our annual Father’s Day BBQ. The number of people would change each year, but one thing remained consistent — the delicious food! Tradition always meant the guys would cook for us on Mother's Day, but Mark insists on manning the BBQ for Father's Day as we....

Family Motor Coach Association Members Say It Best
It was a no-brainer to join FMCA. Knowing we are covered by FMCAssist, roadside assistance for just $74,
and access to mobile internet….all of this makes RVing easier. We are ready to hit the road and go camping
without any worries, thanks to FMCA.

We took advantage of FMCA’s RV insurance discount. Becoming full-timers, we wanted to make sure we had
a full-timers’ policy. Thanks to FMCA’s help, our policy is now in full effect, and it was quick and easy.
-- Will and Britta Brown, F481545
After just a short time of becoming “RVers” your organization is the most valuable tool we have in the
RV. The convention was overwhelming with the vast amount of valuable information we received from both people
within FMCA and other members. You may consider us “lifers”.
