The Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA) is expecting around 4,000 motorhomes, including display rigs, and between 10,000 and 12,000 people for next week’s “Celebrating Family” convention at the Fairplex in Pomona, Calif.
According to the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, the Cincinnati, Ohio-based motorhome club will hold its four-day annual winter rally March 20-23.
The show unofficially starts Monday at 3 p.m. with a special exhibit of motorhomes only. For the rest of the week, the main show runs from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.
This is the fifth time the association has held its show at the Fairplex, according to Robbin Gould, spokeswoman for the group. “Fairplex has so many great facilities to use,” Gould said, noting the last show at the complex was in 2003.
The opening day of the convention will feature a seminar on “Selecting the Right Motorhome for Your Needs.” The program, conducted by Jim Brightly, technical editor of Family Motor Coaching magazine, and Don Eversmann, FMCA executive director, is designed for attendees who do not own a motorhome.
Topics will include: types of motorhomes, fundamentals of the various systems found on motorhomes, and the advantages and disadvantages of owning and operating a motorhome.
