Due to the COVID-19 virus and a “Stay at Home” order issued by Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, FMCA's business operations will not be operating at full capacity until at least April 6, 2020. We will do our best to service you in a timely manner, but could be delayed in responding. Additionally, we will not be mailing or shipping any items while the “Stay At Home” order is in effect.

RV Rights

Protecting Your RV Rights: We’ve Got Your Back!

FMCA is the largest association dedicated exclusively to the freedom and fun of owning an RV. We work to protect RV owners' rights:

  • Residential parking
  • Overnight parking
  • Length/Width limits
  • License requirements
  • Any issue or law affecting the use of an RV

FMCA has a Governmental and Legislative Affairs Committee that assists members who face local parking rights restrictions and other regulations affecting the use of their RVs.

We understand traveling in an RV can present unique situations. This may be more of a concern for motorhome (Type A, B, C or bus conversion) owners due to the size of their rigs. We're here to help:

FMCA's Parking Rights Manual & Guide summarizes significant parking rights cases. It can help members to understand their legal rights and the rights of legislative bodies that place restrictions on motorhome parking. To request a copy, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Curious about individual state rules in the U.S. and Canada? Verify motorhome length restrictions, license requirements, road regulations and more before you hit the road.


Current Issues

FMCA joined other industry associations in signing a letter to be sent to congressional reps who will be considering whether to renew the Satellite Home Viewer Act in summer 2019. Section 119 of this act is what allows DirecTV and Dish to supply RVers and long-haul truckers with Distant Network Signals (DNS). This provides RVers who sign up for DNS access to network stations from New York City or Los Angeles as they travel.

Learn more about Section 119 and how RVers’ satellite TV service works.
