The Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA) is finalizing plans and registering families and exhibitors for the group’s August 27-30 motorhome showcase in Indianapolis.

According to a press release, approximately 2,500 motorhomes and some 8,000 people are expected to gather for this grand event, which has been dubbed “Formula For Fun.” The Indiana State Fairgrounds will be the hub for the convention, with families arriving and staying in their RVs and forming a “small city on wheels.”

The association hosts conventions in varying locations across the United States with the purpose of celebrating the motorhome lifestyle and is making its first visit to Indianapolis. However, the association has hosted three conventions in South Bend, Indiana, with the last one being in 1991.

Convention activities include a motorhome exhibition that brings together major motorhome manufacturers and dealers from throughout the United States and Canada, as well as manufacturers and distributors of a multitude of RV accessories and components, and suppliers of various services related to RVs. For those considering the purchase of a motorhome, the convention provides an opportunity to view an assortment of makes and models all in one location. A variety of 2012 models, in many different sizes and price ranges, will be on display, and some manufacturers will have 2013 models ready as well.

In addition to the motorhome show, highlights include seminars on a variety of topics related to motorhomes and RV travel, tours involving local sites and scenes, evening entertainment and numerous social activities.

While the convention is organized for Family Motor Coach Association members, the organization also invites members of the public to attend and provides various admission options.
