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!

“Sometimes we would call a couple of days in advance to make campground reservations, but for the most part we didn’t even do that,” Joanne said.

They used The Milepost trip planner to pinpoint campground locations and roadside pullouts where camping was permitted. “We were told this publication was going to be the bible and they were right. It really tells you all you need to know.”

Private campgrounds typically had sites to accommodate their motorhome and towed vehicle. That wasn’t always the case in U.S. National Forest campgrounds or sites managed by the Bureau of Land Management, Joanne said.

“We probably spent about half our days on the side of the road, or just finding places that allowed overnight parking.”

In Fairbanks, Anchorage, Seward, Homer, Haines, Hyder, they found plenty of places to park along the side of the road with sufficient space to pull out.

The conditions and amenities of the campgrounds they stayed at ran the gamut. Many presented opportunities for fellowship with other RVers.

For instance, at an RV park in Fairbanks, they enjoyed a halibut and brat barbecue. “Everyone brought a side dish and it was great socializing with everyone, including the folks who were work-kamping there. We heard lots of stories from others about where to stay on our travels.”

At an RV park near Denali National Park, Joanne shared her homemade chocolate chip cookies with two grateful RVers next door.

At a campground in British Columbia, from inside their motorhome they could hear cheering from the other RVs as Edmonton won hockey’s Stanley Cup.

"And who could forget the sourdough pancake toss at Sourdough Campground in Tok, Alaska," Joanne said.
