  • 21. My parents are members of FMCA. Now I have a motorhome, and I was told that I could join FMCA and use their number. Is that correct?

    If your parents are already members of FMCA when you sign up, it is possible for you to use their number with an "S" on the end for son, or a "D" for daughter. Similarly, applicants whose son or daughter joined the association before them may obtain a membership using their son's or daughter's number with a "P" on the end for parent. Members' grandchildren may join the association and use the family membership number with the addition of the letter "G" for grandchild.

  • 22. Does FMCA offer any incentives or rewards for recruiting new members?

    Yes. FMCA members who recruit new members can save on their membership dues, area rally registration or family reunion registration. FMCA members receive a $10 coupon for each new member they recruit. Coupons may be used by members toward payment of their FMCA membership dues, event registration, or for FMCA logo merchandise. There is no limit to the number of coupons that can be used toward the dues payment, so the more you recruit, the less you will have to pay for your membership renewal. Coupons that are earned as a reward for signing up new members are good for two years after they have been awarded.

  • 23. Will FMCA sell my name to other companies?

    Absolutely not! In accordance with FMCA's Constitution, under no circumstances is FMCA's membership list to be used for purposes other than FMCA business. Relative to this issue, on occasion you may receive an announcement about a special offer from a company providing a benefit to FMCA members. These mailings are approved by the Executive Board and are made because the board feels that they constitute a benefit to FMCA members. A confidentiality agreement protects the list against use for any other purpose.

  • 24. I’ve heard that my town is considering an ordinance that would restrict RV parking. What should I do?

    FMCA has a Governmental and Legislative Affairs Committee that supports the common interests of FMCA members on legislative, regulatory and other emerging issues that protect the motorhome lifestyle.

To request a copy, contact our Member Services Department.
