FMCA Membership Enhances Fall RV Travel
RV owners look to FMCA for the peace of mind membership provides, and the fun!
Signs of fall and the resulting arrival of cooler weather are all around us. It’s a great time to be an RVer! Many RV owners plan fall leaf-peeping trips. Others hop in their RVs and head to one of the many fall festivals, or book a site at a nearby campground to enjoy autumn activities. Soon, RVing snowbirds will set a course for their annual migration to warmer climates. Members of FMCA, a Cincinnati, Ohio-based organization for RV owners, are among those making such travel plans.
FMCA members look to the association, the world’s largest member-owned RV organization, to provide them with benefits and services that enhance their travels. A vote of the membership in late 2017 made those valuable offerings available to a wider audience of RV owners. FMCA now welcomes owners of all self-contained RVs, branching out from its previous motorized-RV focus. And member benefits continue to be added.
For many RVers, coverage via the FMCAssist Medical Emergency and Travel Assistance Plan, valued at $105 per family and included in the annual dues, provides reason enough to become a member of FMCA. But that’s actually just the beginning.
Need new tires before your next outing? FMCA offers special member rates via its tire-purchasing program, with options from Michelin; Continental; and — coming soon — Hankook. No RVer should leave home without a roadside assistance plan, and FMCA has RVers covered with a special member-only rate of $69 per year for FMCA Roadside Rescue®.
RV insurance is paramount to peace of mind also, and FMCA offers members group rates and a choice of plans and providers. Keeping up with your mail while snowbirding or full-time RVing is made easy by Your Best Address, FMCA’s preferred mail forwarding provider. Staying connected while traveling is facilitated by group rates on mobile internet plans from Verizon and Sprint.
RVers under 65 who are looking to hit the road but concerned about how to handle health insurance will want to explore the offerings of the new FMCA Health Plan.
The cost to join FMCA is just $60 for the first year and $50 per year thereafter. The first-year fee includes a set of membership plates to display on one’s RV. Multiyear dues discounts are available.
FMCA is unique among the major RV clubs, because it is a not-for-profit organization, and the only one owned and governed by its membership.
