      StevenKathy October 15 My mother wrote articles for "Trailer Life" back in the 50's. They were all towed trailers without all hitch equipment we have today. My Father towed our trailer from Topeka to Fillmore, Utah with a 6 cylinder Chev. suburban!

      Rusty LaBarre October 16 For those wondering why towables were only recently allowed: Look into the history of the organization; particularly why and how it was created. After that, change was hard to achieve.

        Gary & Edi Koss November 9 Steiph  I have to agree with you it's always about the money,the more members the more money and my group has more members than yours so we must be better.  Check out the All Inclusive MotorHome  Club (AIM) just started about this last year.

      Jo & David November 9 I for one am very glad for the new members, no matter what kind of rig, trailer, fifth wheel they drive. RV have always been known as friendly, kind and caring. I hope that doesn't change. 🙂👍

        Norm & Barb Bauer November 9 Why is there so much negativity about towables and a name change? Count your benefits as a member and enjoy all the activities that are available and create a positive attitude. Remember, it's all about having fun.

        FMCA National Office November 9 We are a member-owned organization, so the decision was put to a vote. The vote landed in favor to allow RVs of all shapes and sizes. Thank you for your feedback.

      Rusty LaBarre Tue at 5:29 AM It is NOT about the money! It's about providing benefits for the members. Of course, that takes money but $$ is not the focus.

    November 10I have a idea I would like to get feedback on?

      Dell & Judy Jackson November 10 What size Agency do you think it would take to support it, how much would it cost and who would pay for it?
    • Terri Freeman
      Les & Sandy November 10 Sounds good on paper but as Dell & Judy pointed out it would never be practical and all areas would make up their own rules ( think of the License to carry ) and it would be a nightmare unless you could do it without government involvement

      Vince & Sue November 10 I'm confused as to what's the point of your question.  Don't you already have the "right" to park your RV where you want?  If you are asking for "permission" to camp wherever you want, that's a different story.  Creation of an RV Pass would...  more

        wannavolunteerft November 2 The only problem with Sprint is it is much more limited for service availability.  I checked the map and there is no service in the entire county I plan to make my home base. Not such a good deal when you get unlimited nothing.

      BillnDena November 4 We have the Verizon deal through FMCA.  I felt that the speeds were great, however, once you hit the 25 gig throttling, it's useless.  I will blow through 25 gigs in two weeks.  I thought about using the Sprint package, with no throttling, ...  more
