Verizon News Update: Disappointing news about our newest benefit

06/21/2017 5:00pm EST

Hello Members,

We thought today was going to be a day of celebration. As you’ll read in the July of Family Motor Coaching magazine, our expectation was that we would be opening the doors to the latest and greatest member benefit – unlimited, on-the-go internet access at a great price for all FMCA members.

Unfortunately, despite months of negotiations, approvals and green lights, the provider (Verizon) pulled the plug at the last second. Magazines had been printed, pre-announcements tested, and the staff was standing by for the flood of enrollments.

For more background on how this situation unfolded, see the post here.

We are very sad. And disappointed. We were so excited to bring you this program because we know how important staying in touch – with reliable access – is while you’re on the road.

Please don’t give up on us. After the unexpected cancellation by Verizon, we’re dusting ourselves off and getting back in the ring. We promise to keep working to bring you benefits of value and quality – the kind of service you expect from your RV family.

Thanks for understanding. And keep having fun – because that’s what FMCA is all about!

Dear Members,

Welcome to the FMCA family!

Ordinarily I wouldn’t write to a new member before we’ve even processed your enrollment, but this has been an unusual week around FMCA.

Last week we launched what we believed was going to be an awesome new benefit exclusively for FMCA members.  After all, our members are on-the-go motorhome owners and want to stay in touch while they travel! We’ve even heard that some people signed up for membership just to gain access to the Verizon unlimited on-the-go internet service.

But then, despite months of negotiations and approvals, Verizon unexpectedly pulled the plug.

If the Verizon benefit was your only reason for joining and you want to cancel your membership, just email membership@fmca.com and we’ll take care of it.  

But before you go ...

... Consider staying on as a member.  Our president always ends his letters with “It’s all about having fun” and that’s the truth!  FMCA members enjoy lots of great benefits designed especially for motorhome owners, but it’s more than that – it’s about being part of the best community of RVers you’ll ever find.

And speaking of benefits – FMCA membership includes a best-in-class travel assistance service, money saving deals on tires, great member-only content, and many more deals, discounts and services for motorhome owners.

 

Thanks for your consideration.  Remember – It’s all about having fun!

Three words that best describe our motorhome:
Home away from home, Quick to Clean!

The best thing about our motorhome:
Allows us to travel the country!

Other motorhomes we’ve owned:
Rented ones for trips

We wanted to travel! And take our home with us!

Children, grandchildren: We have two grown daughters and two grandsons living in California.

We travel in our motorhome:
Approximately two months of the year. When we’re not motorhoming, we’re enjoying our home in the Ozarks of Arkansas! Running our businesses, genealogy research.

Our favorite motorhoming destinations:
Maine; Banff, Alberta, Canada; Dam Site Park on Beaver Lake, Arkansas; and any place that is gorgeous!

Our all-time favorite motorhome trip or motorhoming memory:
Belfast, Maine, RVing right next to the ocean, having lobster brought to our door; also, exploring Camden and Bar Harbor, Maine.

Our dream motorhome trip:
We love to see our beautiful country: beaches, free diesel would be nice!

Our perfect day of motorhome travel:
Travel for three to four hours, set up, explore the area, either cook a great meal or find a fantastic restaurant in the area, and sleep in our own bed (never have to tote suitcases in and out of a hotel).

Our worst motorhoming experience:
Pulling into a terrible “RV” park that had uneven pad and only 30-amp electric. That’s why we started CampgroundImages.com, a pictorial campground directory), so we could SEE the RV park before we landed there.

Our motorhoming pet peeve:
No Wi-Fi or Internet in the area

The best addition or alteration we’ve made to our motorhome:
Banks Power System!

If we could change one thing about our motorhome:
Get a new diesel model, perhaps an Alpine or a Country Coach.

When driving a motorhome the most important thing to remember is:
Be careful! Don’t be in a hurry! Double check before you take off!

Our advice for other motorhome owners:
Talk to owners before you buy one. Some motorhomes are much better than others; some require
More “repair” than others.

Our hobbies:
Pam: genealogy, scrapbooking. Bob: photography, Texas hold-em, auctions.

When motorhomers visit our state or hometown, they should be sure to see:
Contact me, I’ve been to them all: Devil’s Den State Park, Dam Site Park, Beaver Lake; Bull Shoals-White River State Park.

Items that we always keep in our motorhome’s refrigerator while traveling:
Steaks, ice cream, white wine

Our advice to new motorhomers:
Enjoy it! Keep duplicate cosmetics, hair dryers, etc. in the motorhome so you don’t have to move back and forth from home to motorhome.
