How do I renew my membership?
To renew your membership, log into your Member Profile or call the Membership Team at (800) 543-3622. FMCA will send you email and postal reminders as your renewal date approaches. You are also welcome to mail back your postal notification with a check.
What is my membership number (i.e. F123456) and/or membership expiration date?
You can view your membership details via your Membership Profile. Or, if you prefer, you can call the Membership Team at (800) 543-3622.
I am a new member. When will I get my welcome kit and plate?
Your welcome kit and member plate will arrive at the mailing address you provided during enrollment within 3-6 weeks. Your plate is custom-made for your unique membership number.
Can I read reviews from current members?
Can I write a review about FMCA?
We love hearing from FMCA members! Members are invited to write a review on FMCA.com. We also welcome feedback on Facebook and Google.
I bought an RV with an FMCA plate attached. What do I do?
Congrats on your new-to-you RV purchase! The plate attached to your RV is unique to the former owner. FMCA memberships do not transfer from person to person with sale of the RV. You cannot reuse the plate or join the club using that number.
However, we invite you to join as a new member! Upon joining, you will be issued your own unique member ID number (i.e. F123456) and sent your own custom plate.
I have a relative who is an FMCA member. Can I reuse their F number?
This is what we call a generational membership. If you have a relative who is a present or former FMCA member, you can link to that person's membership number. A letter is added to your member ID when you join to represent your own unique membership. For example:
- #F123456S (S for son)
- #F123456D (D for daughter)
- #F123456G (G for grandchild)
- #F123456P (P for parent)
Many members take pride in multiple generations being part of the club, and this is a way to honor that legacy. If you are interested in a generational plate, please call the Membership Team at (800) 543-3622.
Please note that each member is responsible for paying his/her own dues, and memberships will be billed separately.
What does F mean in my membership number?
The F in your membership number (i.e. F123456) stands for Full membership or Family. F-number memberships represent RV owners.
What does A mean in my membership number?
The A in your membership number (i.e. A12345) stands for Associate. Associate members are former Full/Family (F) members who no longer own an RV. For example, perhaps your RV was sold due to age or health reasons, but you wish to remain part of the club to receive the magazine and participate with your chapter.
What does C mean in my membership number?
The C in your membership number (i.e. C123456) stands for Commercial. Commercial memberships represent dealers, suppliers, manufacturers, campgrounds, service facilities, or other businesses servicing the RV industry.
Can I rejoin and use my previous F#?
Yes. If you were a prior member and now wish to rejoin the club, we can reissue your membership with the same F# membership ID. Please call us at (800) 543-3622, and welcome back!
My friend wants to join. Do I get anything for referring new members?
Yes, you can earn rewards for recruiting new members. The new member MUST reference your membership number (i.e. F123456) when joining in order for you to receive credit.
Benefits & RV Discounts
I'm Canadian. Can I join FMCA? Are benefits different for Canadian members?
Yes, FMCA is international. You do NOT have to live in the U.S. to join the club. While most of the benefits and discounts apply to all members, there are some limitations:

RV Windshield Replacement — This benefit is available in the U.S. only.
RV Internet Programs — Canadian members are welcome to purchase the plans for use in the U.S. Please note the plan carriers would apply additional charges for use in Canada. A U.S. shipping address must be provided to receive the device and special arrangements may need to be made if the billing address differs from the shipping address.

No, FMCA Roadside Rescue® is not automatically included with membership. Members can purchase the roadside assistance plan at an exclusive group rate offered to FMCA members only. The plan must be purchased from the provider, SafeRide RV Motor Club.
