Plans are taking shape for Family Motor Coach Association’s (FMCA) 96th International Convention and RV Expo, scheduled for July 12-15 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds and Event Center in Indianapolis. According to a press release, an early-bird discount of $30 is available to anyone who registers on or before May 12.

The event will feature displays of the latest motorhomes and a wide range of accessories and gear. Other activities include seminars — approximately 100 different topics —covering everything from motorhome chassis maintenance to smartphone usage while traveling.

“Attending an FMCA convention and RV expo is a great way to learn more about the RV lifestyle and also to meet some really nice people from all across North America who come together because of their love of RV travel,” said FMCA national president Charlie Adcock. “I’ve learned so much from attending FMCA conventions over the years and from spending time with other RVers. FMCA members always seem willing to share information and to help one another.”

A variety of registration options are available, ranging from a $10 single-day pass that provides admission only to the exhibits to a $195 full-access pass that enables the attendee to bring their RV and stay right at the fairgrounds and enjoy all of the activities in the company of others who share a passion for the RV lifestyle. 

FMCA will also host a two-day RV Basics workshop led by RV experts taking place at the convention site and right before the event opens. The RV Basics course is designed for those new to the RV lifestyle or even those just contemplating the idea, as well as more seasoned RVers looking to brush up on their knowledge. The cost for the two days of classes and two nights of camping is $250 per person or $400 per couple. To learn more, visit www.FMCA.com/academy.
