By Robbin Gould and Peggy Jordan, FMC Staff
It’s so convenient to shop at an FMCA convention. You don’t have to drive for miles and miles to the next RV dealership or motorhome products store. If you don’t see what you’re looking for in one aisle, you probably can walk around the corner and find it in the next.
If you’re searching for a new motorhome, this is comparison shopping at its best. Type A, B, and C models are ready for your inspection. Also right in the neighborhood are custom bus conversions, packed with high-tech gadgets and luxurious details.
