Tire Connection: FMCA understands that motorhome owners would need to purchase new tires for their recreational vehicles at some point. To ease such financial ramifications, Family Motor Coach Association offers a discount to all its members called tire connection. To provide this discount, FMCA has signed the Michelin Advantage Program. Through this program, FMCA allows its members to receive a substantial discount on the retail price of Michelin tires bought from any Michelin tire dealers. However, the members need to pay with a MasterCard, VISA, or American Express credit card. The corporate office of Michelin charges the credit card that discounted price. And FMCA will email the invoice to the members giving the details of the Advantage Program discount.
Campground Connection: As the name suggests, “Campground Connection” program enables motorhome owners to save on the campground fees. In addition, the program helps the participating campgrounds to get additional source of revenue. This program is a part of the commercial member campgrounds of FMCA, which offers FMCA members a discount of minimum 10 percent on their campground fees. The FMCA campgrounds are also authorized to sell FMCA membership to customers on the spot. To locate RV campgrounds, FMCA members can search the map at FMCA.com/campgrounds. They can avail information such as link to the campground’s website, amount of discount offered, list of services and amenities, and contact details.
Jerry Yeatts, the director of member services at FMCA said, “We see our new Campground Connection program as benefiting FMCA members in many ways. Who doesn’t like a discount? Plus, being able to identify FMCA campgrounds easily and quickly on FMCA.com will help our motorhoming families to confidently plan their travels. And, of course, the potential for campground owners to connect with an enthusiastic group of motorhome travelers — all for a nominal investment — makes the program appealing for them as well.”
Tour Connection: This discount program, powered by the Fantasy RV Tours, allows FMCA members to embark on the member-only RV caravans and rallies organized by FMCA at discounted rates. In addition, motorhome owners can receive a discount on other Fantasy RV Tours events. Fantasy RV Tours is also planning various member-only tours to different popular destinations. Thus, you can just enjoy the tour with fellow RVers, while the experts of Fantasy do the planning and deal with the various aspects of the outing. The seven-day rally for motorhome owners, which will start in April 2012 in Washington, D.C., will be the first of such member-only tours.
Phone Connection: FMCA members can now avail phone service at special rates offered by American Telecom Network or ATN. Members can select suitable packages and phones. In addition, they can enjoy other facilities like no long-term contracts, no hidden taxes and fees, no credit checks, and no roaming charges. This program comes with three different phones and three prepaid plans. The Silver Plan, which costs $39.99 providing 10 MB of data, 500 text messages and 500 minutes per month; the Gold Plan, which costs $49.99 offering 20 MB of data, 1,000 text messages and 1,000 minutes per month; finally the Platinum Plan, costing $69.99 and providing 50 MB of data and unlimited calling and text messages per month.
