Come out to explore motorhomes galore “” and head indoors for exhibits of all sorts “” at FMCA’s 77th International Convention in Perry, Georgia.
By Robbin Gould & Peggy Jordan
It sure is convenient to find lots of items you like to shop for, all in one place. So goes the reasoning behind setting up a multitude of motorhomes and bus conversions, not to mention hundreds of exhibitor booths, at each FMCA convention. Attendees love it because it saves time and really lets them compare the features of various products. Exhibitors love it, too, because they know they’ll set up shop in a place teeming with RV enthusiasts.
The shopping at FMCA’s next international convention “” the “Georgia Jubilee” this month in Perry, Georgia “” will commence on Monday, March 19, at 3:00 p.m., when the “Motorhome Preview” gets under way. For the next four hours FMCA members will be able to get a head start in their explorations of the many type A, type B, and type C motorhomes and custom coach conversions open for their perusal. Then, on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, March 20, 21, and 22, both the coach displays and the indoor exhibits will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
To help you get ready to shop, we’ve assembled this listing of the exhibitors and the items they plan to display in Perry. Keep in mind that last-minute changes and deletions may alter this list.
