FCMA?

Is FCMA worth the money? I am already a AAA RV Premium user but was looking into other options.



Any with FCMA users that like/dislike their policy?

Are you talking about FMCA == Family Motor Coach Association?
Others have commented on them here.


Edit: Here's one:

Also their roadside service is only $69 a year which is about $100 less than GS. I am still a GS member since it is good to 2020 but no longer have any of their roadside insurance. I did use GS twice with one good and one so-so experience. If you call their road service you may need to know a second language.

FMCA used to be pretty snooty if you didn't have a motor coach but they realized their membership was declining because of old age people passing away and they needed the revenue so they decided to open it up to any type of RV. Most of their members agreed to that, although there are still a few that look down on towables but they just have to suck it up.

FMCA also has a campground in Cincinnati, OH. I think members get 2 nights free, a month, and other nights for $20 a night. I've stayed there nice little park. When my Good Sam Roadside expires next month I'm switching to FMCA Roadside Assist. They also have a Michelin Tire program among other discounts.

I've been a member of FMCA for about 5 years now. Here is a thread I started when FMCA changed it's memberships policy to all most RV's.

I also have the FMCA Roadside Assistance program. You can see it compared to other similar coverage Here. Fortunately I haven't needed to use it so I can't comment on how good or bad it is...

There are still old timers in the FMCA who think it means For My Class A but it is getting better. And I'm a member for the benefits, not to hang out with them anyway.

Nope. If my low-life "travel trailer" money was not good enough for them for the first 55 years of their operation, then its not gonna be good in their last 5 years. No matter what they say, you are going to be a second class citizen unless you drive a Class A. (if you don't believe me, I challenge you to even find a picture of a towable camper on their website. Just saying....)

Hard pass.

It isn't too hard at all to find a picture of a towable on the FMCA website. Look at the homepage. One of the rotating pictures sure looks like a 5th wheel to me. Just saying...

I couldnít careless what they think- if they offer something that is good for me, Iíll sign up for them.

Right now, I have my eye on their unlimited cellular internet plan.
