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 is available to members. This 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.


Curious about individual state rules in the U.S. and Canada? Look no further than FMCA's Motorhome Regulations Guide. Verify motorhome length restrictions, license requirements, road regulations and more before you hit the road.


While FMCA has a committee dedicated to working and fighting for your rights as an RVer, the power is in your hands as well! You can call your politicians and tell them how you feel on certain issues that are important to you and your fellow RVers.
