FMCA Eyes Aug. 27-30 Convention in Indy
A huge motorhome exhibition will take place Aug. 27-30 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis, Ind. The 87th Family Reunion and Motorhome Showcase is sponsored by the Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA), based in Cincinnati.
Major motorhome manufacturers and dealers will be bringing new motorhomes to Indianapolis for convention attendees to tour. Plus, other companies will display their wares inside Champions Pavilion, making available RV accessories, components, supplies and campground information, according to a news release.
On Monday, Aug. 27, from 5 to 8:30 p.m., a special preview of only the motorhome exhibits will take place. Regular hours for the motorhome displays will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, Aug. 28-30. Hours for the displays of RV accessories, supplies, and components will be 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Aug. 28-30.
Those who own a motorhome or other self-contained RV are invited to take part in all of the activities and to stay with the rest of the group at the fairgrounds. The gate price for non-FMCA members is $240 per RV (with two people); this non-member fee automatically grants a one-year FMCA membership or Family Motor Coaching magazine subscription to the RV owner. The FMCA member price is $190.
Convention attendees will be able to check out the latest features and innovations that are available in motorhomes. Some of the displays will include production-line units, and others will demo custom-built coaches for uses ranging from family camping to transporting high-tech business equipment, or for use as conference coaches. A great variety of motorhome styles and a broad price range will be represented.
The RV exhibition is just one element of the FMCA convention. Approximately 2,500 families will travel from across North America in their motorhomes to take part in the event, and some 8,000 people will be on hand. The convention will include seminars on topics relative to RVing, evening entertainment and various social events.
