FMCA — an international association for recreation vehicle owners —returns to Perry, Georgia, March 15 -18 for the group’s 97th International Convention & RV Expo. This will be the 10th FMCA event at the RV-friendly Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter, 100 miles south of Atlanta and just off I-75, the main north-south route for snowbirds.

It is estimated about 2,700 RV folks are expected to make their way to the event, dubbed “Southern Charm,” in honor of the host area. All self-contained RV owners are invited to join the fun.

“We love visiting the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter in Perry,” said FMCA national president Jon Walker, in a news release. “The staff at the fairgrounds and members of the local community are friendly and helpful and go out of their way to make FMCA members feel welcome.”

The popular RV expo features major RV manufacturers and dealers featuring a variety of RV types, sizes, and price ranges. There are also hundreds of companies selling all kinds of RV components and accessories, home products, and RV-related services.

“When they aren’t shopping, attendees can take part in seminars about topics ranging from towing a vehicle behind a motorhome to microwave-convection cooking. Approximately 100 different sessions will be held, so plenty of educational opportunities will present themselves,” according to the news release.
